New Ducting advice please

I'm due to start fitting the ducting to the roof vents installed by the roofers on our new build for the bathroom and another for the en suite. The run from the vents to the showers is approx 15 feet. 

 

I'm concerned that if I fit flexible ducting it will develop sagging and with condensation, be a trap for water to build up. As its up in the attic the long term effect of this (as we won't be going up there very often) concerns me. 

 

Could anyone advise me whether I'm being overly concerned or would it be best to avoid flexi ducting and install rigid ducting instead? Any other advice would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you.

Semi ridgid all the way. The fully flexible is OK if you support it fully. But that can be a pain if it needs to be elevated.

 

Keep an eye on the market place here or post a request as the amount you need is likely laying around unused at somebody's site.
