Irrigation tubing from Home Depot or Lowes works good, or you can use an old hose

The black irrigation tube works. Use a size just a bit bigger than the chain so it runs easily.
Straighten by sealing an end (fold over and tie), hanging with a weight at the lower end and filling with boiling water or use a heat gun.
Heat the ends in a gas jet until the ends smooth out then frair them. I use the end of a plumb bob.
