Someone else might know what's going on, but my chemistry thoughts are telling me that you have copper oxidization in there.

Its not even a month old tube..

Yep, it's the tubing not the water. I also have Duralene and after 5 months the water in my Res is crystal clear but my tubes are greenish haze.

Thanks I was hoping you would say 12 months I got some of the masterkleer too. I have never seen that colour coolant before looks awesome!

Quick question for those who got their Pro LRT replaced by Primochill. Did they make you pay for shipping the "new" Advanced tubing to you?

Nope. Primochill shipped out a replacement inch for inch at no cost to me. They covered shipping 100%.

The advanced has been working perfectly so far and no signs of plasticizer build up or clairity loss so far.

I am trying some right now and will continue to test for several months. Nothing to report, but it has not been in my loop very long so hard to tell at this time. Will update this thread as time goes on, about once a month.

Also, my XSPC "High Flex" tubing is working quite well. It does have some clouding to it, but not as bad as others and nothing breaking down that would hurt anything. Note, this is the kind you have to buy separate, NOT the cheap version that is known to have issues and usually comes with kits and such.

The only reason that the tubing and NOT the reservoir is showing the greenish haze is because tubing is far more porous than the materials used to make your reservoir, or even your blocks/fittings, ergo the green colour that is probably coming from your radiator is, showing up in your tubing wink.gif

What's making your water that green color, doesn't look like the tubing is causing it. Usually green water means that you're getting copper in your water so something is breaking down. I'd take apart you loop and and see what's causing it.

THIS^^^




Some information on the 'Green Topic' that i had posted a few days ago in the OCN Cooling Club and pic Gallery:


EXCUSE THE OT


Secondly, as far as i was aware, certain coolants actually lower the loop temp and are also quite neutral in their Ph content-my advice to you would be to PM Mick on his thread (Mayhem's), im sure that he will offer you any suitable advice if he can-he's good that way.

The green corrosion is called patina, it is basically tarnish that occurs on the surface of copper/bronze and similar materials when the metal is exposed to various chemicals or acids and in turn oxidation takes place.

Have you had a look at the Ph of your loop (ideal Ph would be around 7 which is neutral), you can get Ph test strips very cheaply at any drugstore.

'Acid' (soft water) water being under Ph 7, and Alkaline water (hard water) being over Ph 7 (i remember this from my old days when i was an Aquarium enthsiast-now those were kick a** pumps tongue.gif)

Anyway, here is a link to simplify what i have said: http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/ph.html

that may well be the cause of your 'Green' problem.

Hope it helps you solve your 'Green Problem' thumb.gif
