My loop has about 4meters of Primochill black and uv blue tubing and i have another 4m spare. I bought it in Dec 2011 and still havent found the time to check its condition.
Hopefully i will clean my loop within this month, so i was thinking what is best:
a.To reuse my old tubing after ceaning it IF this will cause lower powder growth rate
b.Use my spare primochill (same batch)
c.Buy something new (nothing seems a solid solution currently)
Since I ve spent more than 2000€ for my loop only, buying new tubes is the least of my problem! My problem is -lack of time- to experiment with new tubes OR to clean my MORA3 Pro 9x 140 rad and my 2x komodo 7970 blocks in case the new tubes have such huge powder issues!
They have all the sizes so no worries here is the link for you Durelene PVC
i will suggest you to read more a bit here Plasticizer Problems / Discussion / Gallery - Page 75
you will going to read some very interesting post from a very respectful person Martinm210 that has been in our community for so long hes has more review done here than hair on hes head

It will never going to be sorted out, Primochill going down like BFG look the photos below

If you go back to the first page you can see that my previous 6 month old black primochill only exhibited a little bit of this powdered plasticizer stuff...now the white tubing is just CAKED in. Oddly enough it is only on my fittings, my cpu/gpu blocks are perfect aside from a little oxidation.
Still waiting for a census on a good brand so I can replace everything
This Tube and fittings above looks like old car battery when it start getting old and about to explode.
This is not acceptable how a company has fallen a part and ruin they costumes like that, those pictures are the proof of Primochill tubing that have had call out our attention HERE IN THIS THREAD. We put so much time,love and money in our loop hardware to use this kind of tubing look how bad it is and people giving advice to still using it and clean it when its get bad.
How many people don’t know about this Plasticizes Problems
How many people still buying it and still recommending it to other?
after since the first post I still don’t believe that people still buying it and using it. come on people that’s no doughty how bad its become.
Now answer this question.
Would you buy a Maserati and use the cheapest gasoline when you run out and when we need the tire you go to a local Auto parts for some cheap Tire?
Me A: Hell Da **** NO. so this is your hardware what you going to do clean it ? tell how because i don't know i will love to know how you deal with it.
PS: Stop buying Primochill.
