I've seen a lot of WC systems with this piece of plastic twisted around the tube. Example

What does it do? Decoration/ part of the tube / make it stronger...?

some use it for decoration, but its main purpose is to prevent kinks in the tubing.

@ darkunitzero. I guess you're right :p At first I thought maybe it was an optical illusion or something, but I guess not. How silly, even if that person put it on for only decorative purposes, at least do it right!

And they're sold under the Cool Sleeves name by Swiftech, and Jab-tech has some (in various colors/sizes) by PrimoChill.
