Try Home Depot or Lowes. You can buy corrugated Black drain pipe for about 5 bucks for 10 feet and just tape em together and cut off the extra length. I use it and travel all over and it is water proof and very, very tough. The tube will hold 4 larger poles and up to 6 smaller diameter poles. The pipe is also very light weight. Be sure to buy the pipe that is not perforated both types(perforated and solid/no holes) are usually close together.

I would find a landscaping/drainage outfit that caters to the contractors. There you could probably find some ADS (Advanced Drainage Systems) lined corrugated drain tubing. It is smooth on the inside and doesn't flex nearly as much as the usual corrugated drainage tubing you can get from the consumer-oriented big boxes.
