Looking for foam insulation for water pipes

Hi,

When I used to live in California, and also in the UK, it was relatively easy to get long pieces of thick foam rubber that you could wrap around water pipes. These are essentially long cylindrical tubes of foam rubber, with a hole down the middle (for the pipe) and a split down the side (so that you can easily wrap it around the pipe. The idea was for insulation, however I always put it to another use ie putting around the tubes on a bicycle to protect them when shipping it. I went to Jumbo in Zürich today looking for such stuff, but couldn't find anything. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might find such a thing, or something that might do in its place, at a reasonable price (ha!) in Zürich?

Go back and ask again, maybe they have put them away as the weather is hot?

grauen Schaum Schwamm, Rohrisolierungen or Rohrschalen

COOP Bau & Hobby = small, expensive Home Depot. But they have what you are looking for. I bought some a month back.
