Default clouded tubing with oxy clean

After infecting my last batch I filled my primary and threw in my equipment with a little too much oxt clean (probably half a cup into 5 gallons). I rinsed everything a few times and got the smell out (its original oxy clean) of everything. My tubing doesn't smell but it looks cloudy now, should I just buy new stuff or is it fine? I'm thinking of running some water through it and tasting for any chemically flavours.

It's not a bad practice to replace tubing every once in awhile anyway. I'm due to get some ordered myself. Tubing is cheaper than an infected batch of brew.

If the tubing is relatively new, a soak in Star San should clear it up. If not, just replace it.

tubing should be fine, but it is good advise to replace it every so often

Its fine, ive used it many times like this and had no issues.

That said now when a tube gets like that i move it to mash tun duty, as in its only touching wort before the boil so i dont really care as long as its clear of debris and grime.
