Pressure Switch tubing

Had a tear on the end of the tubing where it slides over the nipple on a pressure switch. Just cut the torn end off, but now its obviously shorter, and too short if I have to do it again. I've only seen the tubing available with the purchase of a switch.

Anywhere I can get/order it by the foot or what are the alternatives I can pick up for when the time arrives?

Thanks

Is this for the draft proving switch on a furnace? If so then it is probably a silicone rubber formula to withstand high heat. Here is a link to a company that sells tubing specifically for a Lennox furnace (they probably have others but this is the one I found recently and bookmarked). They sell it in various lengths including a variety pack that has several lengths. This six-inch piece is the best price-per-inch of the lot.

Take it to any auto parts store. They can match the size and cut you whatever length you need.
