  9. Viscosity

 Once you’ve selected tubing:

  1. Test it in your application.
  2. Monitor tubing life in duty cycle; look for signs of tubing fatigue (for example, small pinhole leaks, abrasion, etc.).
  3. Set up a maintenance schedule to anticipate tubing failure.

Monitor the time your tubing is used in the pump. Advance it 8 to 12 inches on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis, depending on your experience with your maintenance schedule.
