Which Coolant? - Page 8

post #71 of 75
According to MSDS here and here, a 1% polyalkylene glycol concentration is lethal to algae and microbes. Nothing is going to grow in 15% solution for sure. Same is true for most other glycols. The enviromental spill section will call them low toxicity, since they need 0.1% concentration to inhibit algae/microbes and in most spills in rivers, it will get diluted far beyond that, but in past many used 2-3% EG for biocides, works just fine as would same of polyalkylene glycol.

Go 100% distiled and nothing else, As long as it is seal tight the water will stay the same, I've had a setup run over a year and it's still crystal clear.

A single infinitesimally small bit of something gets in the loop and you could have a major algae problem. I highly recommend some form of biocide, be it a kill coil or otherwise.
