comment Why is my brand new PEX clear tubing turning green near the hot water heater?
The water is not green, just the PEX tubes. There is hardly any copper in the house.

Yes, its is exposed to the light. But only indirect light from the hallway - never direct sunlight. And it is just the section of pipe closest to the HWH heater, so it must be a temperature thing as well. The cold water line has the same amount of light, but is not green at all.

Maybe the algae still grows in the red/blue lines, but you just can't see it? :) Bummer, though. I guess I could replace it and wrap it with insulation and then wait 6 weeks to see if new algae grows.

I insulated most of it, but not the laundry room yet since we are still finishing up some stuff.
