even the strongest rubber hose will eventually crack, but as long as you keep it away from most of the heat youll be fine.

Someone has to be using the wrong hoses. At school we've been using rubber hoses to handle connections on a turbine setup. They have yet to crack rated for 1800psi and 400F

but whatever works for people, Im going to use rubber hose, if it does crack (dont think it will) in a few years to replace it Ill still be well below the cost of the metal tubing.
