DIY flexable bubble wall *troubleshooting*

I have a bit of extra tubing, so I decided to save me a few bucks and make my own bubble wall. Well.....air only comes out of the 1st hole :/ But if I angel the tubing upward, the air will flow up the tube and through the holes.....

Plug the end and increase the airflow or decrease the size of the air holes

end is plugged when testing.
The holes are likely too big. It works a bit better when I turn the tubing upside down.

Holes are to big or u need more air volume for the size holes you do have

You need to build up a little pressure in the tube to get the result you want. So smaller holes and / or more air volume is the key.
