How do you balance the pressure? I would imagine that every single hole must be exactly the same or the air will all escape out of the largest hole in a fast stream? Additionally, for the tubing, does the rubber not tear after a while? Since the rubber is a lot like plastic-wrap where before its punctured its strong, but after its punctured, its easy to tear. I remember notching tubing with a knife before and bending the tube there allowed the tube to break evenly and tear.
