    Possibly the dye used? Any metho used in the loop? Only other thing I could think of is overtightening but generally these are more likely to be some kind of reaction.

    Bad luck man :( Anything damaged from it? To he honest I really doubt the safety of using only zip-ties for fastening hoses. A lot of people have no issues with it but I always like to use worm-drive stainless steel clamps :)

    Good work on getting those dual loops going and getting it all put together.

    its possible the extra weight of the tube has just broken the acrylic ... maybe better support / less tight tubing runs would be better

    nice stuff! and yea tubing torque cracked my plexi res threads too, it happens! nice work, but you should consider (not red, but) a different or slightly differnt color for hte other loop. its a nice effect.

    The red looked like rust after you drained it. I would say there was something in your loop maybe alchohol? It cracks plastic and reacts with other things. But most likely you over tightened or to much strain on them.

    You mean...

    By using the two different colours you can see where each loop goes?

    and yes I actually liked the different coloured loops, even if it was an accident or more a teltale that something was wrong.

    Or replacing the piece with fittings with thicker acrylic, or another layer of the thinner stuff. Should increase durability and decrease torque.

    I really liked the loops when they were different colored :eek: Looks cool now too except I'd possibly change the cable ties to some proper clamps.

    And about your sig - there's no reason to be sorry for your english as most americans can't spell either :D

    always think about how much better your english is than their swedish ;) (or dutch in my case, or whatever language you can speak and other people can't)

    love the inside look :rock: nice and cosy :D How much liters does your loop take? :eeek:

    I think the flow rates is not so bad but i´m not sure.
    The loops takes about 2-2,5 liters :D
