Filter tubes

Cleaned both Magnum 350 canister filters on my planted 75 gallon today. In take, an return hoses were replaced with drinking water quality hoses from LOWES. Filter were setup 5/5, after redo. Hoses were easy to clean an as always there were snails livin in the filters, an I have not seen anything differant goin on in the tank. My question, should I, pay the extra money for hoses from the pet shop, or let thing go, an see how it plays out. See pictures....first time I have purchased hoses anywere other that petshop, but, due to $$, tried to save about 20$...Thanks for any feed back, an I'm still usein the hoses. Water chemistery is fine. thanks

seeing how people use pvc in fish tanks I see no reason vinyl tubing from a hardware store would be any less safe.
