I'm pretty sure some kittens died as a result of this post.

On a side note: XSPC tubing still working great for me with no signs of plasticizer leeching at all - although if temps are really the biggest factor then I wouldn't expect problems since even benching my water never gets over 33C. I'm redoing my loop soon so I'll see if anything changed in the last month or so.

Because the opinions are almost as varied as the brands of tubing available. What one person swears by, another ridicules. There is also a reluctance to, yet once again, attempt to sum up this thread for someone who has not been following it. I could tell you what I am using, however, it would just be recreating what has been said many times already, and others will have to do the same to support their viewpoint.

I suggest you do a search of this thread using different brand names, such as duralene, advanced, feser etc and read the information presented and make up your own mind.

When you contact Primo Chill they claim there is no PLASTICIZER problem. They link to PLASTICIZER RUMOR DEBUNKED!!. They offer to replace tubing with new advanced tubing; But Shipping and handling is not included in the replacement. Which is reasonable because they are shipping replacement tubing. They claim there is no problem but there is a lot of people with white hazed tubing.

Any one have problems with XSPC tubing. I only had red/orange XSPC and I made test with it. The XSPC didn't show a white film like the Primo chill.

I also have not had any problems with XSPC tubing (I have the black) although it obviously has some form of plasticizer in it because it is pretty flexible for 1/4" thick tubing (I'm using 3/8X5/8). Of course, my experience and yours are anecdotal and not necessarily indicative of a trend... unlike the issues with PC Pro were.

Capt Proton said it better than I could have - I understand the desire for a cliff's notes version - but that's what thread search is good for. If there were a simple, concise answer to the question then there wouldn't be 2200+ posts in this thread.

For those of you interested in Red coloured tubing-TFC Feser have just released a new type of red tubing.

It is not transparent and is a very deep red, i learned about it when i was notified by DazMode videos that i subscribe to.

The link is posted below-I DO NOT KNOW ANY MORE DETAILS, PLEASE USE GOOGLE TO FIND OUT MORE IF INTERESTED wink.gif

I'm not in the slightest bit interested in red tubing, but i know that many of you out there are, and secondly, as someone who has used Feser tubing in the past, i can personally say that i personally have had no problems with plasticizer.

I have no idea about the new tubing with regards to plasticizer issues, all i will say is that like the new Primochill Advanced tubing, it will take time for any useful feedback to come in (6 months to be safe).

Hope this helps you 'red or dead' guys out there smile.gif
