Did something stupid.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey - so I set up my first loop and have been bleeding out all the air over the past few days. Time came to put the reservoir cap on and call it good. When I pulled off the fitting and tube I was using to fill with - there was a little water sitting on top of my reservoir - not thinking, I grabbed a dusty linty sock and wiped it off. Now I have a lot of crap floating around inside my res, where as it was crystal clear before the dusty/linty sock towel. I've flushed it 3 times already and doesn't look much better. Any tips?

Only thing I can say is keep flushing. I used my kitchen sink then flush with distilled

If you can, I would just take it all out hook it all up then put an inlet to a faucet and just let it run for an hour or two. Should get most/all of the stuff out.

Or buy a filter and put it at the start of your loop and let it go for a bit.
