Are you talking about the flexible clear vinyl tubing for transferring from one container to another or the opaque white/off-white PVC pipe for a manifold?
If the former, I'm not sure how well the clear flexible tubing would work under high temps. It will probably stiffen up after a few uses though.
If the latter, CPVC pipe is safe to use with hot water compared to PVC pipe. CPVC is definitely worth the slight premium to avoid potential chemical leaching and softening.
