Post Tubing brands
What's the cosensus on Primochill clear tubing as opposed to the Tygons, Fesers etc? There are so many opinions out there that you don't know what to believe except find out for yourself. Some clear tubing can look cloudy.

In addition, can you add additional UV dyes to Feser 1 premixed coolant without it causing harm? Feser 1's UV properties are poor compared to otheres I've seen.

I believe Feser says to only use their dye if you need more.

And all clear tubing clouds IMO. But they all start off clear. Really should just buy colour tubing though over relying on coloured fluid.

The thing about Feser Tubing "red" is that it looks orange...very orange and I hate orange so I wanted to try the clear with either Distilled water and dye, or the feser 1 UV red coolant.
I see first hand that the Feser1 coolant is much "redder" than the red Feser tubing. And Ive now read that Primochill is a good quality tubing so it's looking more like that and distilled water and dye.
Or just do yard work.

Yeah I've always used Primochill ProLRT. Clear and now UV Blue. No issues.

The UV Blue does look purple in direct sunlight though, but otherwise it's blue and glows nicely under UV.

What are you using for coolant?

Also if you use Dist. water and want to dye it and have the coolant UV reactive whats the ideal solution?...and is it still a good idea to use an addative?

I use Mustkleer stuff (I always get the spelling wrong mind) but I get it in 7/16" sizes so its a tight fit over the 1/2" barbs I use so then I dont have to use any clamps or shite :)

Yea I used the 7/16 on 1/2 barbs. I had to use muscle and sweat to get it on but it stays there. And dam hard to remove. I hate the ugly clamps myself.

Well the easy way around that is to put the ends in warm water and to put them on then. Softens the ends so its easier to put it on :)

Never needed the saliva bit but works well if you leave it in there for a little bit :)
