Murky water

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The water in my XSPC RASA kit tubes has turned a murky yellow/tan-ish color. I have the silver kill coil in the res/pump area. Not sure why it turned this color.

Is this a common problem?

Plasticizer. If the water itself is murky then you probably got some impurities in it while installing.

Should I drain it completely? Or replace the tubing?

If its only the tubing, then you can just replace it. I recommend . If the water itself is murky, then I'd flush everything out using hot water then rinse it with distilled.

And yeah, its a common thing for the tubing in the xspc kit to become cloudy, in fact the majority of the people who purchase the kit get new tubing from the very start so they don't have to disassemble the loop later.
