    Discoloration of Tubing

    Hey all, I have not changed my signature of late, but I made the decision and built a custom loop.

    It's and EK Kit; however; because of the room inside of the Corsair 780 T, I could not fit the standard radiation in the 'Pull' config.
    Ended up with a 360 mm XSPC Slim.

    The problem I have is when I went to install a 45 deg compression fitting, I noticed that my tubing is all discolored.

    So my questions are?

    Do I have to replace it, if so, what with?
    What is causing it?
    And finally, I will naturally have to clean the whole system, what with.

    The kit has only been installed for less than 3 months.

    This common with any colored coolant. The dye will stain the tubing.

    It's purely aesthetic. If you want to change coolant colors, you'll have to drain the loop several times until the dye washes out of the loop entirely.
    Say hi to the next generation.

    You can replace the tubing when it comes time to change your coolant, you can flush it out with distilled water.

    Red is the worst color for staining because of the amount of dye needed to achieve the proper color.

    Read in the NOTES what koolance says about their red coolant.
