My coolant smells very fruity??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Its just distilled with a kill coil and 2 drops of pt.

I noticed after I was draining my loop cause I needed to shorten some tube.

Im not going to lie it smelled great but is it supposed to be fruity

Mine doesn't smell fruity, but it does have a scent after running a while. I'm unsure if it's the tubing or radiators that cause it, probably both. If you happen to try and siphon it out, it also tastes different lol

you sure it's not your "coolant" that smells fruity?
post #6 of 11
Unless you ran the coolant through some fruity tubes made out of fruit, it should not smell fruity at all.

Lol, this has got to be one of the strangest incidents about water cooling
post #9 of 11
The fruity smell could just be the tubing itself, I've known plastic tubing in the past to smell funky, so when you put the coolant in it, it sort of ferments that smell.

Seems the only logical explanation lol!
