Default Replacing auto siphon tubing

I need to replace the tubing on my auto siphon but I do not have a Homebrew shop close to me, is there any other type of tubing that I can buy at any other store? Can I use generic plastic tubing from a hardware store, or will that give my beer a plastic taste?

I use just tubing from the hardware store without any issues. The beer is just passing through it's not in contact with the tubing for any length of time.

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

yeah I've used the tubing from the HW store. It was in the plumbing section I think it is the same sort of plastic that is used for some icemakers.
