    Hey,

    Looking to replace the tubing in my wc setup (swiftech h2o-220 compact) from the standard black neoprene to something clear.

    Any advice on what to go for and what to avoid? Also does any one know what size tubing I would need? as I don't have the packaging where I am at present to check.

    It takes 3/8" tubing. Good tubing includes Primochill Pro LRT, Tygon 3603, or TFC tubing are all highly recommended.

    Can't fault Tygon. It bends well, doesn't kink easily, its non-porous and doesn't stain. Its just a bit pricier than the rest, but not massively so.

    I'm using Tygon R3603 atm, very good tubing.

    I certainly won't buy anything other than Tygon again, I'm thoroughly satisfied.

    Well Tygon it is then I think. Any advice on the best place to pick it up in 3/8" then?
