Use Old Tubing?


Hello,

I have a roll of 3/8" ACR tubing that's been laying around in my garage - open to the air - for about 10 years. With proper vacuuming, can I use this in my project? Or has all the magic leaked out?.

If you can be sure that all the ants and spiders and various other bugs are completely gone ,if you make sure the spider webs and assorted other airborne dirt is washed out,then you may think about using it for a/c work.

*** Shouldn't be a big deal - I'm just talking about 4 foot long pieces to replace what was chopped off.

Make sure you wash it out real good with soap and water, Just kidding don't even blow in it. The dryer the better.
