Default Blow Off Tube Temperature?

My sink is too small to fit the 7.5 gallon kettle in it to fill with boil water and my hose takes forever to fill the kettle. My question is: Is there any issue with using my blow-off tube to transport 135 F water from my sink to my kettle which sits on the ground? Will I get any off flavors from this?

I am not sure the temperature rating on one of these. It is a clear blow-off tube, nothing fancy, got it in my starter kit.

Thanks for the help.

It will be fine although when that tubing gets hot it becomes SUPER flexible so just keep a close eye on it.

I've read somewhere that clear vinyl tubing is good up to 170 degrees.
