CARE AND USE OF YOUR POLYCARBONATE TUBE: 

PROTECT YOUR TUBING and sight gauge from direct flame exhaust.  Tubing will soften / melt if flame wash heats it past 250 F.
Liquid will boil if you do not shield the fittings.

A HEAT SHIELD (a piece of flat metal under the edge of your kettle) should be used to keep the flames off the sight gauge, valves and thermometers.

To remove  debris, a short soak in powdered brewery wash or oxyclean and a gentle scrub with a nylon tube brush.

DO NOT SOAK FOR LONGER THAN 30 minutes to prevent cracking of your tube
