Can anyone recommend me good low maintenance tubing?

Recommended Posts

Yeah that's about the best there is for reliable tubing.

Down side is that it's not transparent which is what a lot of people want.

The best transparent tubing is from mayhems.

If you don't need transparent, get the ZMT.

Primochill (primoflex) Advanced LRT has never given me a problem.

Any food grade/antimicrobial tubing from Tygon will give you what you want, just make sure to get the thick wall tube and not the thin wall tube because of kinks when the coolant gets hot. You can find Tygon on amazon.

Id go black. All the promochill I use is stained. As much as I like seeing the color, looks much worse stained.

Given me tons, I used the advanced LRT as a stopgap while my zmt shipped and it permanently marred every one of my fittings with a film of plastic.

Tygon makes all sorts of tubing for different scenarios but the tube i am talking about is clear but not the one with the "threads" in it however, Tygon does make that kind of tube also.  

 

One more thing and i know you didn't ask this but make sure to get the same ID and OD tube as the fittings or you will get leaks.

Of course, I am not that stupid, 64% of the time.
