I'm thinking about replacing all of my tubing with either silicone or thermoplastic tubing. My reasoning is primarily sanitation. I replace my vinyl tubing every so often because I don't trust it, even after sanitizing with StarSan. I've just heard to many stories about people getting infections from old tubing. I figure if I get silicone or thermoplastic, I can boil it to sanitize, thus eliminating the need to worry about the chance of an infection coming from the tubing. In the long run, this should be cheaper since I won't have to replace any more tubing.
On the hot side, it must be better to have tubing that is actually rated for higher temperatures.
Anyway, does anyone use one type or the other? Any pereferences? Reasons for those preferences?
Thanks in advance!
