black tube - air in the line?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
asus sent me a new mobo, figured while installing it i would change my tubing out...

if i switch from clear to solid black, how will i know if i have air in the loop?

You can clear the tubes by squeezing/pinching the various sections of tubing. Doing so will dislodge and small air bubbles that are adhering to the tube walls.

Fwiw, all the loops that I have assembled have been air-free within 12 ~ 24 hours after I initial setup. I can think of no normal situation that would preclude your loop from being the same.

I went with black Tygon tubing for my WC setup also.
I figure Algae requires light to grow, so why have clear tubing??

Of course, I'm also going to use PT-Nuke anyway...
