Not sure if this cleans out or not. Was not interested in that option personally since I had some nice new red tubing at hand!

Got my kit and installed it in December. A month into it I noticed my tubes getting a 'dirty' color. Not exactly frosting or clouding.

Now after three months the tubes look like *****. Meaning they have a grimey dirty looking appearance, sort of a brownish shade. And the tubing closest to the CPU block is the 'dirtiest' looking and actually a bit clouded, compared to other sections. Also, the T-Line section in my loop does not have this discoloring whatsoever. The tubing is as clear as the day I bought it.

So like The Sandman said, I agree that it is heat which causes this discoloration. So very possible sunlight has an affect.

I'll try to take some pics and post em.
Being closest to the CPU makes sense. It is where the most heat is generated. The t-line also. I believe the coolest water is in that section, right? I doubt that sunlight would have a big effect. It would need to heat up the tubing quite a bit and the cloudyness would then be on the "outside" of the tubing... unless... UV rays are also at play here but again, this is happening only on the inside so I guess heat + water (hydrogen, oxygen or both)?

Ya sure, leave it to the guy who's already had to buy tubing twice in one month lol.

I just emailed Cope Plastics to start the ball rolling as I know I'll have to be replacing the tubing again any way.

I'd rather see what's going on inside my loop rather than looking at colored tubing all the time and risk just covering up a now known issue.
I've looked at FrozenCPU under the Tygon tubing and don't see Tygon® Plasticizer Free Tubing listed.

I'll let you all know what they have to say.

Feser tubing is another one that is free of this problem.

My choice is clear tubing because it looks cleaner and the lights reflect nicely (glitter factor I call it) of water filled clear tubing.

Sidewinder apparently sells it also...

Masterflex... (not sure on sizes though)

Here is a thread on XS about the plasticizer issue. They call it "Leech"...

US Plastics... Reliable. Have bought from them in the past. This tubing is pricey though...

If you do a search on frozencpu.com for 'plasticizer' two types of Tygon tubing pop up.

-Tygon 2375 Ultra Chemical Resistant Tubing

-Tygon Silver Antimicrobial Tubing

Both are plasticizer free

EDIT: Sidewinder also has plasticizer free tubing. Tygon 2001 and Tygon 2075. I love Gary from SW great guy

I want to try running a Pentek water filter in my system to see if there's anything actually in the water. The best way would probably be to use a pair of quick disconnects. Put a quick disconnect in your loop somewhere, and put the same ones on opposite sides of the filter. Then introduce it to your system as needed. Expensive way of doing it though. Trying to see if I can use another method.

This is true... But I am a cheapskate like you wouldn't believe. $20 x 4 changes a year = $80 a year PLUS the time it takes to drain, clean, install, fill, and get the air out of the system - and this is me that does not leak test! I am lazy... 2 times a year I can maybe live with. Also... I have it in my head now that if there is enough build up that pieces could get loose and clog up a water block or foul up a pump. I may be extreme in my line of thought but hey, better to be safe than sorry. This is an investment to me.

Out of curiosity... if you are using distilled water, why filter it then?
