    While I couldn't state a "universal" fact on what's getting in there, here's the common contributors to the "slight discoloration" that can occur during evacuation (even with "new" systems):

    It's the other way around, the TEZOM oil is hydrophobic, it repels the moisture that comes into the pump so that the exhaust carries away moisture more easily. In a sense, it is opposite to what...
