I am going to be flushing out my entire loop and I was just wonder what is the best way to do it? I have heard of boiling water?

I will also need to flush out my pump how shall I do this? What I was thinking of doing was:
running some warm tap through the entire loop (including pump) just to rinse it out
Then take some hot water through the rads then a rinse with distilled everywhere?

Thanks biggrin.gif

^That's my favourite way. Pump shouldn't really need to be cleaned, but you can just make a temporary loop, and run water through that.

Another way would be to flush/clean your entire loop with distilled water and bicarb, about 1 tbsp bicarb per liter. I recently did that as my first attempted with a Pastel coolant went bad because of pH imbalance. I cleaned each component individually than the loop as a whole to include pumps. After the flush, I rinsed with distilled.

I use a very safe method of tap water washing through the parts, in both directions. Then use distilled water in the loop for leak checking. Empty then re check with distilled water.

Acids and or high temps in loops I think should be avoided when possible.

I have heard this about vinegar being trouble and especially when it is nickel being used not sure if it is true but I will stay away from that. So far I am thinking of just using some tap water than distilled to flush it all out after wards. By the sounds of this do you do it when your loop is all put together? or before that? I was planning on just running water through all my new blocks, old rad, new rad, and pump to clean them out and then before I put them into the rig flush it all out with some distilled again. Sound about right? (there is no need to wash new tubing is there?)

I have also heard of this and I will be using Pastel in my rig. I havent heard it much though so I am kindof skeptical :/ bicarb is just baking soda right?


Thanks for all the answers! It really is helpful

I have personally done it with Nickel plating and found out the hard way mad.gif




Sorry should of been a bit clearer, I flush my parts by them selves with full pressure cold mains water, in both directions. Once flushed with tap water, I assemble the loop, then run and flush through distilled water twice, leaving it in for about six hours of running at a time (ie. whilst leak checking) thumb.gif

I do this with every part new or old. Don't want any parts of the old coolant to be left over biggrin.gif

Anyone heard from Mick yet? I am hoping whatever he has going on turned out to be not that serious. It's never fun when people you know are going through a crappy time. grouphug.gif
