The joint where the male connector was forced into the pipe weakened the pipe wall and it eventually leaked. The leak would either make a mess &/or allow air into the system which would require priming the pump and bleeding the air - pretty inconvenient especially in the winter.
Someplace in the Repair Links are examples of what others have used.

Might be some info here: Source of tygothane plastic line

The problem with the hard plastic line is that it is difficult to push the banjo end into the line.
