You might try the springs they sell for bending copper tubing. They 
are about a foot long and they are designed to slip over copper tubing 
so you can bend it without kinking. I don't know how the copper tubing 
and plastic tubing OD's line up.  The set I have has 6 different 
sizes. I don't know if you can only buy one size.
