Home cheapo sells braided plastic tube that I used for a long time. Its rated at 300psi and pretty cheap. you should be able to find it anywhere next to the brass fittings.

I got about 20' of it at Menards, but you can get it an Lowes and Home Depot. My hose is 200 psi rated, and should be around hose barbs and clamps in the same aisle. It's not ussualy by the pipe though.
