Tubing discoloration after 4 weeks? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I would mix a little bit of vinegar with some warm water and swish it around real good. Then flush it out with warm water a few more times. Then flush it out with distilled water once or twice. It's better to go overkill when flushing Rads then not do enough, especially when its clear tubing.

is vinegar safe for copper blocks? I read somewhere that it causes a chemical reaction.

I've a full copper cpu block and it'll be difficult to remove every bit of vinegar residue from the rad.

Just use hot water and shake the rads and blocks back and forth. Do this till you think there clean. Dont get crazy on the shaking lol

You can use a diluted white vinegar/distilled water mix. I use a 1/10 ratio if I remember correctly. If the mix coming out of the rad or block is tinted light blue, then its because you let the mix sit too long. After flushing with the mix, do a couple straight distilled water flushes and then you're done.
