I've found 3/4" to be a little too loose on those shutoff connections for my taste. That being said, I have run them that way before without ever having an issue.

5/8" PVC hose works better IMO, but you'll need to heat the hose to get it over the connection most of the time.

Buy the thicker clear hose 5/8ths interior diameter hose at either big box hardware store. Use the hose clamps too but be careful not to go too tight or you can crush the connectors. The clamps are a buck and a half each and good insurance.
