coolant question...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know that there are a million threads on this but what I am asking is a little bit different I think. I want to try out a red dye... Yes I know I will gunk up everything and distilled water is the only way to go. But if I am willing to change out the coolant every 2-3 months do you think I have a good chance of not having such an issue? I have tried colored tubing but it just doesn't look as good.

dyes just mean extra maintenance, if you can deal with that, go for it

Dyes don't gunk if you use the correct one, what causes gunking is inhibitors and the like. Its very much a Myth that dyes gunk im afraid to say.

I have done a few years of testing now to dispel this myth and can prove it over and over again that the gunking is a effect of inhibitors and other chemicals braking down at a molecular level. All so the fact that plastic get's in the loop and is warn down or leaked plus corrosion inhibitor collapsing. How ever people think it dyes because the Gunk is then dyed by the dye giving the effect that its dyes gunking when in fact it is not.

Dyes on stain stuff and this can easily be remove if you know how to with out any problems.
