Is it safe to refill your tank with a off the shelf hose pipe, such as yellow, green etc, will it leech anything into the tank or would it be better to get normal tubing what you would use for external pumps?

They are fine for water changes and short term use, I do it every week and don't have any problems. Just make sure you run clean water through the hose before you use it.

I purchased a lead free Marine/RV hose that I use to fill my tanks with. This hose is used only for my tanks and nothing else. In my mind, better safe than sorry.
