I can't find latex tubing anywhere , but I found PVC tubing of similar size...

Can I use it instead or do you think (or KNOW) that PVC tubing 24/7 against the balls would be harmfull ???



thx in advance.

As long as you wrap so any part of the PVC tubing does not come in direct contact with your skin there should be no problem.

Well, DLD, you can't wrap & use the ROP effectively - the copper & zinc must touch your skin. Not sure if PVC is bad for anything.

PVC shouldn't be a problem touching your skin. Probably more people have latex allergies than PVC. I think the issues might be with the edge of the PVC being harder than latex and irritating your skin, or with the ability of it to hold on to the other parts.

Yeah, PVC pipe would be extremely difficult to get over the ends of the rods ...plus its really stiff, so I don't see how that would be a snug ring type situation on your package...
