Can I use stainless steel water hoses to connect to pvc pipe?

My Grundfos MQ Series pump finally gave up after 15 years. The cost of fixing was going to be as much as a replacement so I purchased a RainFlo MHP50. The inlet and outlet ports are in different locations so I need to re-plumb the connections to the pipe coming from the rainwater catchment tank and the pipe to the drip irrigation system. The pump has a 1" metal female input and 1" plastic male output. Is it OK to use these flexible stainless steel hoses to connect to the existing threaded male pvc fittings?

Edit: 'Can I use' not 'Can I usu'

As long as they can move the required amount of water per time, I don't see an issue.
