Yup, bought mine from amazon. I left a one star review and a warning about the clear tube.

I'm still going forward with my cheap Home Depot tube. I haven't decided yet on what to replace it with in the future. I like Feser but its pricey tbh.

Question for the owners of the clear Primochill running dye. Does you tubing no look really clear after you added the dye? Mine looks like crap, almost like it as dust and finger prints on it. I've tried wiping it down with a damp cloth and it didn't help.

Edit; I'm thinking I might be starting to see some clouding on the test set up or it could just be me not being happy because I don't have the glass looking tubing in my case that I want.

Are you asking about the exterior of the tube? Not much with clear tube, its noticeable on colored tube like black, red, and white (my personal experience).

Yeah, the outside.

This is what its looking like.

But I must say using a flash and a couple little tweaks it looks good in the pics. Now that posses a question. Have we all got are hopes up on something because of all the great photographers we have on here?

I got some new Primochill LRT clear from PPC today and it was completely different from my old primochill. The newer tubing from PPC was extremely soft and had a purple tint, the 3/8 5/8 tubing just slid on the fittings while my old tubing needed some grunt and was crystal clear instead of purplishly clear.

Why hasn't a Primochill rep chimed in by now? Do they care?

Sounds like the thing to continue with if the cheap stuff isn't clouding up or at the same rate. That's what I would go with if I were using clear tubing anyway. smile.gif

I don't think so. I think some of it has to do with how you handle your tubing and are your hands clean when you do it.

I have two different photos taken with a webcam...

2011-08-2615-31-20522.jpg

2012-02-0612-06-20855.jpg



The first one I didn't realize I should use something to protect the tubing from the Collar of my Compression fitting. If you have Black tubing it's not that big a deal but you'll still notice it. With White tubing however. eek.gif

The second one I wrapped some silicon tape (you can see the stuff on the outlet tubing smile.gif)over the tube so that it takes the discoloration and not the tubing. I would suggest in the future if you don't wish to see prints of using some gloves and make sure they don't have the powder on them. That powder will get everywhere if you aren't careful. And even when you are. wink.gif

I'm wondering this myself. Do we have a Primochill Rep here? If so, they have to know this thread exists by now. mellowsmiley.gif

That's rather spendy for tubing bruh. $2.50-$2.70 a foot? No thanks. Just checked out Koolertek's site. $1.95 for Primochill and Feser. If it really is 8 months old, that's a pretty good deal. Still tubing doesn't last forever if it's in a humid environment. Not bad mouthing anyone, just sayin that tubing will dry out just like anything else. And then it also depends on how much of the stuff they have in stock. As many water coolers as this place has I don't think that will last long based on just pricing alone. smile.gif

I seeeeeee you werm. biggrin.gif
