Holy crap. next up. Hard piping my rig. Thats insane!

Plasticiser leach... nothing you can really do about it. Was the driving force for me to buy hard tube. Just need to find the time :)

Technically never need to clean a loop again with hard tubing

I just pulled apart my loop that's been going 3+ years. Never checked/cleaned any components, just a re-fill. Running distilled and kill coil everything is spotless.

Had copper/acetal blocks. I've read that silver doesn't play as nice with nickel plating.
