Is flexible vinyl tubing appropriate for the two drain lines to the sump? The sump is about a 14' drop to the basement below.

for return plumbing (two separate mag 18 pumps).
I don't see why not, but make sure you use the reinforced tubing so that it maintains it's shape and does collaps.
My Store bought sump system used a Flexable Vacum Pool type hose.
You just want to make sure there is not kinks in the hose so that your flow won't get restricted.
