@ginger_nuts

I recently imported 40 feet of duralene from Sidewinder PC. It cost me $70 - almost as much as the tubing, but I figured, it would be cheaper in the long run.

Just about to tube up my first water cooling rig - going to be interesting to see how the temps hold up in our typical summer .....

Got my Mayhems from Thekoolroom - fantastic service and would recommend thoroughly.

Ok, here is the PH test strip. The system currently has two drops of the biocide in it with just over one ltr of mayhem's ultrapure. Should I add another drop?

It's decently acidic as it is and I think the biocide would add more acidity to the loop...

I am using Primochill UV Green tubing and Mayhems UV green coolant and I don't forsee having any problems at all.

I guess I will have to report back months down the road.

No that is acid as said and you have got a problem. The only real way to fix that is to start again as you have added to much Biocide and if the system still had acid in it from before (wich does happen with new equipment). Only add 1 drop at a time then test it as it says on the the chart at the back. This is why we included the PH test kit so you can find out quickly what your problems is.

Dyes are very susceptible to the PH of your liquids and this is why a lot of people had failures in the past. Hence we introduced the simple PH test kits so that you can resolve these issues your self. Remember though every thing Mayhems make in either concentrate or dye form is extremely strong. We do not mess around when it comes to these and sell you diluted over weight liquids.

Mayhems Ultra Pure when first used doesn't really need any biocide at first (for the first few weeks of use) you again should test this before adding biocide (again it should say that on the back of the card). The idea is simple you use a little bit of a test strip and test before and after adding biocide so that you can do it correctly.

Next time we make the cards i will out line the 6,7,8 in red to show were you should be aiming for.

If you do not wish to strip your loop there is another way to make your liquid neutral and that is to nip to your local pet shop and ask them for a PH balancer kit. this will allow you to bring you system back to equilibrium which is PH 7

Never be phased by this as what you have done is normal and people just do not realise it as they have never had such simple test kits given to them before and are normally miss informed on forums as to the route issue of the problem.

Will flushing the loop at few times with distilled water do the trick, or should I just completely disassemble the loop and scrub everything down?

You need to get the acid out. Use a small amount of bicarbonate of soda, about 1/2 a tea spoon to 1 Ltr flush this though the system and then flush though with DI water this will help remove it wink.gif. what your trying to do is neutralize the acid and bi crab can help do this as it will being the PH level back up wink.gif.

Cool, thanks smile.gif

Edit: I just ordered some more ultrapure and it will take a few days to get here. Will leaving the water in there a little longer in its current state cause any damage to any of the components or tubing or anything?

Edit 2: When you say bicarbonate of soda, you mean baking soda right?
