My personal opinion, it's probably all being made by the same OEM or two, unless you are set to use a colored tubing instead of clear, sure, go with Primochill or Monsoon, if your looking to run clear tubing, go with the "bulk" supplier, it's way cheaper and it heats bends and forms the same as far as I could tell.....
Interesting. Thanks for clearing that up. I know i've seen people say that hardware supply companies don't keep the specs as tight. But i know you wouldn't say all that if it wasn't true.

Evaporates through radiators? I've been wondering the same thing for some time.
That's how i've always understood it. The warm/hot water passes through the radiator, radiator's being cooled by fans, little water evaporates.
