silver kill coil, not working - Page 14

post #131 of 205
All you'd have to do is drop silver kill coil in a fish tank and see that it does in fact work. It may not reach every part of your loop though.

Please read what i said, it clearly explains the difference between your fishtank water and cooling system water.

To make it easier on you, your fish tank water is not sterilized, is it? You'd usually get it from your SINK and along with your fish, plants, and the certainly not sterilized aquarium makes the water even more acidic, which in hand breaks up the silver and kills algae in some degree. Now, your water cooling system uses sterilized water, hoses and other varies CLEAN and STERILIZED components, which in hand, dosnt break up your silver.

Anyways, even though its a proven fact, most sellers that i have been in contact with refrain from using silver in your water system.

meh..add a little sodium hypochlorite ..In a closed loop..it should last a good while

Interesting, i dont see how bleach would do any good in a long run though.

I would imagine that by adding Sodium Hypochlorite, the water would become slightly basic which would not only kill off bacteria, but act as a fairly effective corrosion inhibitor.

doesn't bleach cause damage to acrylic and other plastics......I dont' see how that would work if people are using acrylic tops on pumps, blocks or reservoirs

Yeah, it does. It would work in a short run considering algae growth, but in a long run its just going to ruin your equipment.

Looking forward to pictures, I'm not familar with shiny/nickel bps fittings, but I do use matte black pbs fittings, often the paint scratches off and expose the bps metal(brass or copper) fittings, I have yet to see any corrosion on the bps fitting. Maybe some chemical accidently entered your loop which cause a reaction throughout your whole loop, there endless possibility.

I used a handful of solution in my loops.
(1)distilled water only(3month),
(2) thermochill ec6 /w distilled water(5month),
(3) ekoolant /w distilled water(2month).
although I cleanse my loop quite frequently, my waterblock and fittings are still corrosion/stain free to date.

Chemical contaminent is not likely. My loop was clean, with no chemicals. I guess its possible I just let it run for too long without changing out the distilled water.

I have totally redone my loop with mostly new parts And I now have a drain line installed. Using koolance qdc's from the pump to the first rad and have a second set of qdc's hooked up to a peice of tubing as my drain line. Ill post pics shortly.

updated op with pictures of the corroded fittings.

This has got me thinking. I remember a few people saying they had black gunk all in there loop when there EK Nickel Blocks were corroding.

Maybe that black crap in my gpu blocks was caused from the nickel that corroded of the fittings. All it takes is for one peice of metal to corrode and that can cause the rest to corrode.
