If it was already mentioned here I might have missed it - certainly possible after going through over 1500 posts in one sitting...Plasticizer Rumor Debunked
Naturally, after finally picking up some Black LRT for my system, and then stumbling upon this thread (after receiving it, of course)... imagine my relief at seeing this.
... And then imagine that relief dissolving like so much anti-microbial in water once I actually read it... no actual evidence, images, etc... just a vague reference to doing significant research on different loop components. Apparently 'debunking' isn't what it used to be back in 'my day' - which wasn't all that long ago I thought.
So although there's no problem, and never has been with their tubing... they've got two solutions to the problem anyway. And one of them is A NEW KIND OF TUBING... due out next month. More interesting to me, since the rest is largely conjecture on their part, is that they make clear assurances that the manufacturing process, materials, etc... have not changed at all during the past 5 years.
I might have missed it, but has someone that had problem with new production runs of tube ever try some from an old batch? Or as importantly, would someone that is currently running an old batch with no problems whatsoever, be willing to swap out a new batch to confirm if there is a difference? Just curious... I'll probably be running something different just to be safe (after all... wasting $25 worth of tubing to potentially save $800 worth of everything else seems like a no brainer).
