still looks the same after months also:
I did have Problems once with many different brand tubing including Primochill till i realized it was user error on my own part.I was using distilled with biocide containing copper sulphate. Since i stopped never another issue and i only use PrimoFlex Pro LRT™ Tubing in all my builds past to present. So 1 time i made a mistake and besides that the stuff has been the best i found.You will aslo it see the same tubing used in my future 2 builds that will be completed shorty.
My suggestion is if your having problems go over your whole loop and find the cause because i don't care what tubing you use you can have the same issue or get lucky and have the right combination and have no issues at all. Out of many many builds i have done i have only had 1 issue with tubing and it had nothing to do with a brand tubing.
I know this thread will just keep lopping over and over with just blame thrown here and there at different manufacturer of the month but honestly its time to find the problem in your own specific loops and ignore all this. I did and finally success after wasting months reading this thread and getting no where.
Just my opinion wish you guys the best of luck. But if you have an issue with your loop don't just keep buying every brand tubing to try and mask the problem. Its not going to go away that way .You have to find the specific issue with your own loop because they are all different and anything can cause it.
Take Care Guys
just because you have a fancy build doesn't make your observation legitimate. tubing is obviously the issue on many of these builds, especially some that i have seen that have all-copper components.
Well I have to agree with MBO, it is something in our loops not playing nice with the tubing. In my tests I used the same tubing running just a res and pump and never got any problems, but my rig had major problems. The pump even created enough heat for the water to be hotter in that little loop than my PC. I even put a fan to blow on the res because I was worried about the pump burning up. The real problem is something has changed,
1. Something with the way the tubing is made and it no longer is playing nice in a lot of peoples rigs
2. Something in our hardware has changed and this tubing isn't liking it for what ever reason.
Now if companies have started using a different chemical to clean their parts before shipping because laws say they have to use more eco friendly stuff and that chemical is having a bad reaction to the tubing, is that the tubing's fault? The same could be said about the tubing. I have worked in a plastic factory and we used this spray stuff to keep the parts from sticking to the molds, now if the company that makes the tubing has changed does the same thing and has changed brands or has to use some thing new because the old stuff isn't legal to use anymore the formula hasn't changed but the process has, this is something much harder to track down if you do not make it your self. Most tubing brand names do not make the tubing them selves, even Tygon doesn't make their own tubing, they just tell a factory what to use to make it.
