Exclamation Water for axo smell like plastic

Hi. i just found that my axo water is smell like plastic and realize that's coming from the freezing chiller pipe (I use household transparent flexible pipe)
I already move him safely and now searching for proper flexible pipe which can use for cold water. I keep a lot of tropical FW fish and do not use chiller.
Please suggest what brand and what material should i use? is aquarium flex pipe like "*heim or *ebo" is ok?


thank you and appreciate your help

As long as the pipe is "food safe" or specifically made for tropical fish it should be o.k. Flushing it a couple times or doing water changes couldn't hurt.
