Yer like fish tank tubing lol i just brought some off ebay from a seller i always used i only got PrimoChill because i heard it was one of the best -_- .
Well no not fish tank tubing, lol, but home appliance tubing. Still clear and they usually have a good selection of ID/OD and different flex types. Like this...http://www.homedepot.ca/wcsstore/HomeDepotCanada/images/catalog/21439.SVLI_4.jpg that whole roll is probably $10usd.

IMO that Special tubing is all marketing and doesn't do anything more/less then the standard stuff.

When I built my external Pump/Rad box 2-3 years ago I used tubing from Lowes, and it is still in great shape today.

That looks to be the exact stuff I bought recently for my build, and it's working great! $10 is a deal for a roll from Home Depot, and I'll be using it again when I redo my stuff.
Good call there :toast:

Could always also run the old school black tubing with white text on the side...
