Re: [IPp] Help with tubing!



I had the same problem with the white spots, ( I use the Quick sets) 
they don't effect delivery at all. I have had several tubes break where 
the tubing meets the pump right before the end part the screws into the 
pump. I guess my 6 yr old is very active & it ends up breaking.
