We use and recommend reinforced (braided) poly vinyl chloride (PVC) tubing (shown in picture) for passing tap water to and from our wort chiller. The embedded nylon braid strengthens the tubing and also prevents it from kinking. It's rated to 150-180F which is high enough for our use.
We do not recommend that vinyl tubing be used to transfer hot liquids that will eventually be consumed as most vinyl tubing is not food-grade approved nor is it rated for use up to the near boiling temperatures we will be using. In our experience off-flavours can also leech from the vinyl, especially when the tubing is new. This leeching increases at higher temperatures.
We recommend and use high temperature food-grade silicone tubing for anything that comes in contact with our brewing water or wort.
