Default Plumbing help please

My husband got me a Sicce return pump for my birthday (this is what happens when you’ve been married for 20+ years). My current return pump generated a bit of noise so I thought this would be a good time to replace the last part of the return pipe with a soft tubing of some sort. So, what is the best kind of tubing to use and where can I get some of stuff needed?
Thinking maybe 6-8” of soft tubing?
Thanks for your help!

New-line hose for NSF silicone tubing. I should add, they sell by the foot. Burnaby doesn't always have things in stock vs the one in Surrey, give them a call, the counter people are pretty good.

For the amount you need why not just hit up the LFS?
I'd bring the pump with you too.

Kyl is referring to this stuff Shao. J&L doesn't carry it, and I doubt KE does either.
It's silicone, not pcv. Much softer and really helps diminish vibration transfer.
It's food grade.

Maggie, they will likely want you to pre-pay before bringing it from Surrey to Burnaby as once cut to size it's impossible to sell small cuts if you don't show up.
Because the outer surface is a bit sticky I recommend you run it under tap water to wash off whatever dirt/hair will be stuck to it. And don't worry if the inner portion sticks to itself. Just massage it to separate it from itself.
