It's all PrimoChill.
They have new tubing released on the 1st Nov, called Advanced which stops the growth.

I was just wondering is this bad for your loop? It may have said this somewhere already but I missed it... Sorry. Could someone help me with this question?



This is what i have been doing here at this thread to convince everyone to stop using Primo chill tubing because this is not acceptable. This stuff can harm your components but wont wait to see it. My advice to you is using Durelene tubing Only in clear, if you want to be red get Meyhems Dye check out this thread you may like it. but please don't said you hate Dye before you check out this thread first.

Read back a few pages and you'll see its a Primochill related issue mostly. So avoid Primo for now perhaps?

EDIT: @ Rakin, Thanks that is very reassuring to know thumb.gif Does it continuously get worse? or does it stop after a certain amount of time?


Apart from obvious plasticizer residue in your tubes, you also seem to have a flaking problem with your Monsoon fitting(s) if they are still under warranty i would suggest that you RMA them.

The flaking residue from the fittings will present a much more serious problem right now(the plasticizer can be dealt with afterwards, but not too long afterwards wink.gif)

Failure to remove any items in your loop that are flaking will clog up your blocks and also may cause damage (not to mention clogging) to your pump-deal with this now mate.

Edit:do like i suggested to Rakin after you have dealt with you immediate problem, get clear tubing and dye-you will have much less of a plasticizer problem.

A prior reading of this thread will tell you what tubing is suitable, i posted a few back a list of clear tubing & dye/coolant suitable for your needs.
Dump the white Primochill!

This has me concerned. Having just gone with Monsoon fittings I do not like the sound of that. mellowsmiley.gif

And you are sure of its abilities how??

Im not trying to flame you mate, but after so many posts, lets not make statements that are unproven, it wont help anyone.

Lets wait for the feedback before we start saying that 'x' type of tubing works or has solved the problem wink.gif

Good luck with that mate-i actually spoke to Brian (CEO of primochill) a while back via e mail, and he offered to make things right by me, over a week ago i contacted him requesting some of the new tubing as compensation for the old tubing-i am yet to have had a reply.
ill give him a few more weeks because i don't think that the new tubing is actually on the market as yet-if he still ignores me, ill post ALL the info that i have, the promises etc, and go from there wink.gif

PVC is the compound that you are referring to if im not mistaken-other companies also have plasticizer free tubing that still seems to have had problems-as i said, until its tested, by honest, non sponsored, non profit gaining everyday people like me and you, i will not sing its praises.

Swiftech and Monsoon fittings are the worse fitting for me in the market the material used for make those fittings are so cheap. the Swiftech fittings if you can bend the Edges with your fingers. The Paint in the Monsoon fittings is nice but paint and material is not durable. PS: i just have build two new system with Monsoon and Swiftech and I know what B Negative talk about

The chipping on the fittings is on the outer ring from the tool that you use. This will not cause any problems with the block as it doesn't come in contact of your acutally loop just the outer tubing. On my monsoons the only parts that ship is on the outer compression where you have to use the tool to tighten the compression down.
