Hi

to find out the best possible material choices for the tubing, do a google search for 'coleparmer chemical compatibility database'

it is a data base that lists amongst other things elastomer materials and their resistance to chemical attack from various chemicals.

Buna Nitrile is a good choice as are

Fluorocarbon elastomer's aka 'Viton'

hopefully this may make it possible to to have a broader choice of tubing suppliers

I've just replaced mine with wiper hose too, works well. It only sees a vacuum, so as long as you don't douse it in petrol it'll be fine. All motor factors stock it too.

Incidently the hose they supply in those kit is attacked by air! or so it seems; it is utter junk
