    What's the longest length of funny pipe you have used before you notiiced a differents in performance? MY customer added some very lage beds; some lengths would be about ten feet. With the beds already installed I'm trying to lessen the about of destruction to the beds. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Funy pipe costs more than reg pipe. Why be generous with it?
