Friend's PC, Tygon throughout:

Pretty disgusting how the Dexcool condensed as the water evap'd out of the loop, giving it a murky colour
It also depends on the liquid contentment of what chemicals.
Also take not the on the outside tygon is a little sticky, so dust and other micro filaments stick to it
and make it look much more murky than it is.
If you clean out that coolant from the inside, clean the outside wall of the tygon with some alcohol and cloth.
I guarantee it will look much clearer.
Its mainly the liquid that turns murky and not the tubing itself. Yes the tubing does get coated by the chemicals in the loop but seaping in through the tygon, that is very very slight like i mentioned before.
It could be seaping out from other areas and components.
