Default plastic tubing

i'm trying to make up my mind on what kind of tubing/piping to use for the brew system upgrade. i came across polypropylene tubing and compression fittings on mcmaster, and was wondering what you guys thought? is this stuff generally leak free?

i'm trying to keep the pump inlets 5/8" or 3/4" ID on the inlet sides. silicone tubing reaches $3+ per foot at that size, so i started looking at alternatives. i'm also trying to keep things stainless and plastic/rubber to avoid mixing metals.


here's a couple links to check out:

thanks,
p.d.
