Braided PVC Tubing

After spending some time at the local HD today, I saw something that could be interesting to use for plumbing my tank. The product is called Braided PVC Tubing and is transparent, rather thick with braid. Is anyone using this at all? Any comments/suggestions would be most welcome!

Thanks!

Run hot water through it to bend it easier. It has a tendancy to resist any shape but coiled. Sometimes you have to work with it for a while. It's meant for higher pressure. It'll work fine.

No problem. A little trick I learned over the years.
