Default Where to buy WC tubing?

Hi guys,

I live in Ottawa and am wondering if anyone has some ideas on where to get Tygon or Clearflex tubing (or any other flexible tubing)? What kind of store would sell that?

I ask only because I have all my water cooling parts already and I don't want to order online and pay shipping just for some tubes.

I tried Princess Auto and Home Depot, they had vinyl tubing but waaayyy to stiff...

Thanks.

Nah, the vinyl stuff is pretty much bottom-feeder material for when you don't care what you're using. Honestly, you'll be hard-pressed to find that stuff in local stores. If you can find some sort of lab supply outlet, they may have Tygon available, since that's what the tubing was originally made for.

Should have what you're looking for. Give them a call, I dont see hose on their website, but they do stock WC products like blocks/rads etc.

You live in Ottawa, but look at Dazmode.com.. shipping shouldn't be too much.. He carries Feser tubing, and has pretty good pricing.

Thanks Miggs78. :)

You also, can look into Canadian Tire and Home Depot as low end option tubing. I'd stay away from Tygon as it clowds badly and looks like hell in couple of weeks.

Yes, but the vinyl stuff bends like hell, is rarely even round (after sitting on a spool for X months) and never looks good in the first place. It's not pretty, but the clouding doesn't affect the performance any.

MpG.. Ima get those oval kind of tubing lol... it might get the loop to look cool..

Yea vinyl stuff isn't any good, agreed with Tygon, clouds up really fast, I even found the cheaper Clearflex tubing to cloud less than the Tygon stuff...

Actually the home depot in meadowvale ( mississauga ) mysteriously carries a second sort of tubing - pure black, but bends much like primochill. Very good tubing. Not cheap though, not cheap.

That black tubing is neoprene tubing, it is great for low fluid lost (And why CoolIT Uses it). Only issue I have found with it, is that it can be easily broken and damaged (I have had leakes from a Worm clamp that was overtightened and ripped the tubing). Just be careful and it is great stuff.
