Strange buildup on Fittings - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Here are some photos of what I'm seeing after I opened up my EK supreme after I got nervous.

I just don't know if this is just dust or something that got in the loop during a fill or if it's bits of the blocks/fittings eroding in the water.

Did you properly flush your radiator before running it? Some of this could be from inside there.

Yeah I flushed all 3 with a vinegar and nearly hot distilled water combo until the water flushed clear.

This.

The stuff in your picture looks like the stuff that came out of my rad when I flushed it before installing it in my loop.

My main concern is that at this point if the damage is done, can I clean them out and continue using or would it be safer to just replace? This still isn't coming off very easily and as mentioned it may have effectively acted as sand paper through the loop. I had thought that I had gotten everything out of the rads but I could be wrong (and it appears that way at this point).
