Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 186

post #1851 of 3087
Its a system I bit off lazyman from West Coast Mods on YouTube.

Basically you get a TotalPond Submersible Fountain Pump (500 GPH version), GE Water Filter (model no. GXWH20S), plastic fittings (forgot what brand I think Watts) and a Homer's All-Purpose Bucket from Home Depot. I used some Koolance QDC's, Fittings and Hose Clamps along with it. Click on my Bored Log to see it more in detail.

Just got the Durelene tubing and I'm relieved its just as soft and flexible as the Primochill I got. Using it to flush out my 560 rads atm and am very excited to get a loop started with them.

Can you please tell me the part number/brand of the the plastic part that threads into the GE Water Filter? What section was it in?

I was at The Home Depot today and had to forget about the whole thing because I couldn't find anything that was the correct size for the GE Water Filter! I didn't get much help from the people that work there, they are clueless and know next to nothing!

Brian must like you ... wondering why ... Primochill shunned me and ignores my emails since a few weeks. I guess Brain the Liar didn't like my description of experience with their PRo LRT tubing and their System Scrubber. (things went sideways).
I guess I will just have to hold on to my word and will LOUDLY recommend ANY other tubing company to everybody I know, not Primochill, never again, not fter my horrible experience with the tubing and even worse experience with their cust support (Brian the Dick). The crap the got loosened from dirty LRT tubing (after using System Scrubber) nearly clogged my Raystorm CPU block, wasted lots of time on flushing components and opening what I could to scrub them, was never offered with a "problem free" advanced tubing (or at least a damn apology!), because Brian the Almighty said that my problem is not coming from their tubing and stopped responding to emails. well, they have one customer less for life ... and many others that I influence in meantime ... I wish Primochill went bankrupt for what they did (not to me, in general).

good luck to you though. perhaps this tubing works out and is finally fixed and free of issues. I will stick to my colored Feser and if going with clear tubing again I will try the most popular ones listed in this thread.

That sucks. I never dealt with Brian, only Jennifer. Just told them my issues I was having in a calm manner and what I expected from them in return. Sounds like it's hit or miss.

I run into half and half there. Either I get someone who knows a crap load or someone who knows nothing.

Hey SL,

Unfortunately I threw away the packaging for the plastic fittings. I'm 50% sure it was a Watt's branding but I do know at least the ID was 1/2". I found them next to the cheap Watt's PVC tubing in the plumbing section at the Home Depot in Glendale.

I tell you what. I'll drop by Home Depot again on the way back home from Costco later to see what it is again. I need to find a step drill bit anyways. The plastic fittings are like really cheap maybe less than a buck. I'll pick up a couple of them in case you can't find them and maybe you can like trade me a couple of postage stamps for them lol.

EDIT: Oh yeah don't get the copper fittings if you are trying again. The tubing won't stick for long even with clamps when running the flushing loop.

To do so I need data, which is why I would like everyone to send an e-mail with the following data to: tube.clouding.survey@gmail.com
1: is your tube slightly clouded, clouded, clouded to the point where it fully blocks vision or not clouded.
2: which metals are present in your loop (not from biocide, so no silver from killcoil or cobber from Nuke)
3: What material do your resoir consist of: acryl, something else, or you dont use one.
4: what kind of tube do you use: plz state as detailed as possible including brand, size, subtype and aproximate date of purchase.
5: what coolant do you use
6: which biocide do you use (list killcoils here)
7: which dyes do you use
8: any other additives
9: for how long have the system been running with the current tubes
10: average ambient temperature in the room where the Pc is
11: water temp during runtime
12: flushing method: tap water, tap water then distilled, tap + distilled with weak acid (vinegar or citric acid), filtered water, no flushing
13: did you reuse any parts from a previous build (state which)
14: corrosion: any signs of corrosion
15: Ph of coolant: no data, below 6, 6 to 8, above 8.
plz submit data even if you dont have any issues, otherwise this wont show anything
if you have suggestions for other things we might need to include, plz feel free to suggest them.
plz excuse my lacking english, i am not a native speaker.

Which company do you work for dude?

The use of the word WE in the sentence "if you have suggestions for other things we might need to include" is a dead giveaway, apart from the type of info you are requesting that we provide for you.
and im sure its not a language mistake, your English is fine wink.gif

Data mining costs money-i may be wrong but if you are working for a company, at least say that you are gathering information (Data Mining) 'on the cheap'-because you are asking for very detailed info, the sort of info that a company looking to address the wc tubing problem would ask wink.gif

It seems that those of us who dared to voice our valid opinions, and post proof as to the Primochill LRT problems will be singled out, and ignored, classy, real classy Primochill. thumb.gif

They should keep a database of customer complaints/addressses etc, and contact the customer with offers of the new tubing (as long as the customer can provide viable proof of purchase etc)-the customers who made claims & complaints in the past should'nt have to go begging cap in hand to any Jennifer, Suzy ,Sandy or whatever.

As i have said many times before, the way that they have approached this matter has been below par-and they should be jumping at the opportunity to implement damage control and turn around peoples opinions towards their products, but they will rely on people that they sponsor to lie for them, and on the other sheeple that will now keep quiet or suck up to Primochill in the hope that they get a few feet of free tubing wink.gif

Maybe im taking what you said the wrong way, BUT, most of us that have approached Primochill with tubing problems have done so initially in a calm manner, your possible hidden suggestion of anything else is insulting, people have subsequently become irate after Brian (CEO of Primochill) has repeatedly ignored peoples valid claims & e mails.
Add to that insults, such as the 5% doozy, and empty promises that have not been honoured, and it is logical that people are irate!

I have an e mail promising to set matters right from Brian, and i have written to Brian at Primochill twice over the last 3-4 weeks and i have been ignored, if i so choose, i could easily mount legal action for compensation based on his e mail to me, the ruined substandard/faulty tubing that i bought and all the other information that has been posted, yet i am waiting till the tubing is released properly on the market, if i do not receive a reply by then, i will decide what avenue to take-so please, enough with the Dalai Lama serenity stance.

Got it, no copper fittings. I would prefer to go with the plastic threads anyway since the filters threads are also plastic, I confirmed earlier tonight that my local Home Depot has them in-stock. I should have the filter system all ready to go before I even get all of my other water blocks, new dual D5 pump top and tubing. I guess that huge GE filter caused a lot of restriction!

Much appreciated!

Well ...

I am a medical student from Denmark, and i have been interrested in watercooling for a while, and while planning my first system, I ran into several post about cloudy tubing. I do not work for anybody, the "we" simply refers to this community.

What i read about cloudy tubing seemed to suggest all sort of reasons, while not really being conclusive on anything, so I wanted to investigate, which is why I made the list of things i wanted to attempt to correlate to clouding.

You are absolutely right that this kind of data could be used by watercooling companies, but I have no intention but to use it to fínd potential patterns, which could help the WC community keep their tubes clear.

If it freaks you out to send data to the e-mail i created, just post it in this tread. The reason why i want detailed data, is because I believe it isn't possible to locate potential reasons for clouding without that kind of data. I could keep trying to find data through treads like this, but here i usually only get 2-4 to pieces of information at a time, which is why i made my first post, I even created an account to do this.
