Not very effectively, cardboard will always absorb water, and be too conductive for decent performance from your VdG

+1.

PVC plumbing is fairly cheap, especially if you can get an "offcut" (left-over length) from someone else's purchase.

You'd be as well ringing some of the local plumbers up and asking if you can nick an offcut. Where are you in the UK ? We may even have some bits at work you can have.
