Clear Tubes Getting Cloudy - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Yea I have a res, no clouding there. I really don't care about the clouding in terms of looks. I guess if it's just the tubing I'm happy, as there is no algae infection.

I was going to say isn't Tygon tubing known for this, but as always the master syrillian beat me to it

This. I used Tygon R3603 tubing with PT nuke and after 6 months (probably less) the tubing became cloudy even though the water was fine, judging from the res. There was no algae or any other obvious contaminant. I swiped at the inside of some tubing with a finger and the cloudiness disappeared, much like condensation (though I doubt that it was in fact condensation).

I think this is somehow connected with heat carrier evaporation trough Tygon, 3603 in particular, like 11-12ml per day on a 2.5m long tubing.

Don't believe me? read this
