Do you mayhem people have a tutorial on how to connect a hose to the tap then to the system? smile.gif

You need to have a crane with a barb fitting on. Typically only found in lab/workshop enviroments unless you have installed it yourself.

What I did was to just use a pan/bucket/any type of container as a buffer, and have the crane fill the pan at the same speed as the pump is sucking it out. Just use have some tubing in the pan to suck the water out, and have the return tubing go into the sink again.

My friend shot a video illustrating the concept, it worked like a charm.

Is part 2 of the blitz suppose to come out blue-ish?

The coolant is light blue, if its been in you system it will clean what ever is in your system out so if you had blue in you system it will bring it out.

I never used coolant before. But now that you say it, I did use the dead water biocide from FCPU. That biocide looked almost alike. Could that be what it is?

That's a copper sulfate, so it's very possible that it caused the blue

What exactly does that mean? Is my loop still clean? I'm adding Pastel Ice white in a few minutes. That's almost the color it was when I used part 1 for 8 hours.

EDIT* so instead of running tap to clean out part 2, in using Distilled. Most of its out, but it will foam a little at the top of my res. I can't determine if that's from part 2, or if it's actually bubbles. If I started to add pastel, and there was traces of part 2 still in the loop, could that affect anything. Or doesn't part 2 have to be COMPLETELY gone? Thanks

So I'm stupid smile.gif
I went to calibrate my pH sensor, and I first filled the pH 6 buffer packet with tap water. I realized it after I already poured it in the water. Wel I went ahead and did the distilled for the pH 4 buffer. Then I went to calculate the pH of the water running in my system, and it wouldn't move or anything. It constantly stayed at 0.

At this point, I'm saying screw it. I'm putting in the Pastel right now. I tasted the water in the loop now (to my tongue), and it taste kinda neutral and a tiny tiny tiny bit bitter. It doesn't taste acidic like it used to (after I ran the distilled and vinegar solution). So I assume the pH should be good to go. Either way, I'm filling it up now thumb.gif

Part 1 of Blitz it primarily phosphoric acid. When you introduce phosphoric acid to copper you created cupric phosphate.

Cupric phosphate looks like this:


Did you use part 1 before using part 2? Because if you did it's probably residual cupric phosphate that part 2 picked up, which is completely normal.

Cupric sulphate is a water soluble salt that the water cooling industry uses as a cheap and effective biocide. (PT Nuke (non pHn), I&H Deadwater, Mayhems Biocide Extreme, etc.)

Cupric sulphate:

If you didn't use part 1 there are three possibilities.

1: There was some residual cupric sulphate caught in the rads. (Unlikely unless you used an absurd amount of biocide extreme)
2: There was some blue dye in the loop prior. (Definitely would cause this if you had blue dye)
3: Part 2 picked up some cupric carbonate (copper patina) in the rads. (Fairly high possibility.)

Verdigris, aka Cupric carbonate (i.e. copper patina)

About 1.25L of Pastel Ice White. My Titabs X's love it thumb.gif



Thanks Z. That makes slot of sense.

Oh. And the part about the Zinc Oxide. I mixed my two 250ml bottles of concentrate with the two 750ml of distilled. Can I pour it down the drain since it has been diluted? How do I correctly dispose of it?
