EK-Multioption RES X2 - Hundreds of cracks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I wanted to clean my loop but found out that my res has literally hundreds of cracks on the inside.

There was only distilled water + IandH Dead-Water inside.

Anyone know what caused this?

It's over a year old, the first maintenance didn't reveal any issues 6 months ago. (I was using Feser One fluid back then)

You didn't use alcohol to clean the res at any point did you? Cracking by over tightening it looks a lot different to that.
