Default Norprene tubing

My brother is big into reef fish tanks and he had some norprene tubing lying around that he used for his plumbing. It looked like it will work for my problem vac lines. Upon research I found norprene is good for high temps. It also does not crack after years of use. It looks like the stock tubing which is what I want too.

Anyone else know anything about it?

Ok, nevermind. I found my answer:

Quote:
With its outstanding flexural fatigue resistance and high temperature capability, Norpreneฎ Industrial Grade Tubing outlasts and outperforms virtually all other general service tubings in peristaltic and vacuum pump applications.

Features/Benefits:
• Superior weathering
• Abrasion resistant
• Outstanding flexural fatigue resistance
• Wide temperature range
• Low gas permeability versus rubber tubing

That'll do. I use Polyethylene tubing, as I have access to alot of it at a local supplier, and I can get it in red.
