Floor buffing pad????  What are these things made of, and do they
stand up to boiling temps?

What a great idea!  And so timely too.  I had to replace a 4
foot length of such hose on my Kenworth just yesterday.  It
is about 5/8" O.D.  

I agree, its pretty expensive stuff.<grin>

That sounds like a great idea. I used a Scotch Brite pad rolled up around the drain
tube for straining out hops and break from the boiling kettle. It works fine. If
this stuff
can handle a one hour boil, I think it will be fine for a lauter tun. GREAT IDEA.
