    You get what you pay for - Remember this

    Also, don't be an idiot.
    .
    .
    Basically, I ran without any additives to my loop for longer than I realised (a month or so) and I think some algea mixed with the cheap PVC tubing's Plasticizer that it was leaking and created these horrors. Bunch of goodies arrived today and everything got taken out and cleaned and we are currently doing leak tests.

    Not sure entirely why the haze formed but it was very easy to clean using acetone and a rag attached to a string. Lesson learnt, and it's been rewarding to fix. Everything has been put back together now with a careful eye. Hopefully I don't get anything in the future again, but this was just stupid :/ Oh well.
    Next is to get a few more SP120s

    There WERE meant to be pics. But Tapatalk seemed to have decided that they are not needed -_-

    Oh crap... not good at all. Glad you got it sorted. What cooling components arrived?

    Yes indeed! New sexy tubing installed and by Jove, it is looking rather smashing, if I can say so myself.

    Was the tubing you used aquarium grade airline tubing? If yes than that's normal when you use it with just regular water. Used to be in the aquarium hobby and app my tubing for my filters and pumps would turn that colour eventually.
    It's actually a good sign of healthy water when living organisms develope,not so nice for water-cooling though

    There you go, @Roobir
    @Ebrahim Ali, it was some pretty cheap rubbish hey. Really nasty stuff. Glad I'm away from it now.
