My Watts is holding but it looks cloudy in the pics I took. Just to make sure my mind wasn't playing tricks on me, I asked my better half and she confirmed it still looks clear but the color doesn't look as deep as before. So, looks like its ok but not holding as the res is super deep (after adding a ton more dye) frown.gif. I hopefully got some new tube coming in and I'm just going to change to colored tube.

My Watts did the same, it's not as cloudy as a lot of people's, but it is just a little cloudy. Here's a picture of it now that that it's been running for almost 2 months with just distilled water and a kill coil:

Yeah, the pictures make it look worst than it is, but I'll probably be putting black tubing in anyway when I change around the loop with the addition of a GPU waterblock. That won't be till I finish work on Project Maple Leaf though.

Then I still have to think about moving it under a full custom loop then having a spare H80 laying around.

Lol Wish me Luck because its not going to be a fun time Switching this out! (2 full loops in the build hidden away)

Going to try CLR in a spare Rad first and run a test setup.

Also another really funny thing. You know the white stuff in the tubing ? Well i took some of the destroyed tubing from testing and just for the fun of it ran a couple drops of Dollar Store Oxy clean in it. Lol funniest thing ever.The tubing looks like new again. Waiting for new test equipment that should be here any day and i am going to try to see if the old tubing holds up now. Who knows worth a round just to play.But whatever is in the hose i also found a little of the same white stuff in my Dominator block when i changed tops.

Also buying a nice PH test Kit and Filter setup for the new test station i am building. (Test station will be for more then just testing Tubing smile.gif )

I've been using the same tubing now for over a year. Every build I just let the tubing dry. Then give it a light brush cleaning.
I also do not think the film on the tubing is plasticizer. Buy some Tygon R3603 or other Tygon and you'll see what plasticizer looks like within a couple of weeks. It also gums up blocks, there would be a nasty residue in most of your blocks.

i cant knock tygon, been running tygon silver tubing for well over a year, regular periodic drains and fresh distilled/biocide mix, pulled a piece off last night to look, no leeching, i think its just the 3603/clear tubing from tygon that does it.

Update to my post at here I've just replaced a graphics card in the first system listed in that post and had to remove some tubing. There's still no sign of deposits on the tubing after 7 months. The water was still clear although I've replaced it this time and the ph level was still 8-9. The water it's been replaced with has a ph level of 7.

Extract from that post:

Brand: Primochill LRT
Source: Specialtech.co.uk
Purchase Date: 05/18/2011
Color: Black
Transparent? (y/n): N
Liquid / Additives: Deionised Water, 1 drop Copper Sulphate
Kill Coil (y/n): Y
PH Balance: 8-9
Block Material(s): Mixture of copper and nickel plated
Tubing Dimensions: 3/8"ID, 5/8"OD
Period of Time: 5 months
Description of Tubing: No sign of deposits after 5 months, Flexible compared to others I've used, not prone to kinking
Notes/Comments:
Black Noise

Well, thought the Watts had rolled over and had gone to clouding heaven but I noticed the res was a bit pale. A few more drops of Mayhems and I'm back to a better state. Still, upon close examination the tube does look a bit cloudy but I am happy its holding. This tell me something had changed recently to improve the tube.

Well it seems this batch of Primoflex does not like Ice Dragon nanofluid at all.
The stuff I used on the front is different thankfully. It looks bad, but not this bad.
