You do know that 6' of head does not refer to the length of tubing in the system, right?

Good lord...

A 6' head means that the pump can pump vertically 6'. You know straight up. Has nothing to do with the length of tubing. I run a Via Aqua 1300 with over 25' of tubing and no issues. My pumps (both Via Aquas) are great. Modded using fstfrddy's quiet method. They don't make a sound, it's great. And they're cheap.

EDIT: Clearflex is good. Primoflex (as I said earlier) is better. Stay AWAY from vinyl.

I think the tubing at home depot doesn't have thick enough walls to prevent it from kinking or cavitating easily.
That why alot of people use Tygon.
Hang on I'll get you a link to some:
Edit: Try here: mcmaster Search for Masterkleer tubing

I have been using my Via Aqua for almost a year now, I have 15' of tubing at least, These pumps will work, I want a D5 but the price is stopping me right now, until then, the ol'e Via churns away in near silence. As far as tubing the cheap stuff is OK if you are not making tight bends and you can just throw it away when it gets crappy. If you are going internal get the premimum stuff, because you won't need much anyway and it takes a tight bend without kinking.

Yes!! Thank you!
6' head pressure. is 2.6psi
So that pumps max pressure is 2.6psi @ 0 flow (Gpm/Gph)

Yes, I am fully aware of that! Maybe I didn't make myself clear. lol
6' head means how high the pump can pump water straight up w/o any resistance. But, add in the resistance and several more feet of tubing and unless that pump has a lot of pressure the flow will drop considerably
