I would do ocean blue and some green. Speaking of Dolphin's, I just got this sick hat yesterday!

an answer telling me how to fix the problem not telling me what I did wrong the answer in fixing helps to understand what is wrong and there should be added pastel instructions to the beginning of this log everybody always Direct newcomers users anybody with a question to the very beginning and it says nothing about pastel because it wasn't made yet. again I want to thank you for your helpful answer

I think you may want to re-read what you wrote. Because I tried a few times and can't make any sense out of it.

I think you already have been answered on what you did wrong. You flushed your system with vinegar and you didn't use baking soda to neutralize the pH levels in your loop. I hope you actually did read the bottle before using it. In case you missed it, I highlighted it in red for you:



Sodium bicarbonate is baking soda, this is what I used to flush mine (followed by just distilled water):

Yeah bud, the instructions are on the bottle. Doesn't get any more direct than that. Mick (Mayhems) takes his customer service seriously and even knowing it was user error, he probably would have replaced your coolant anyway until you threw a fit about it. Also I'm not sure if English is your first language or not, but it's hard to get people to take you seriously with such poor grammar and sentence structure. No offense but it makes you look somewhat incompetent. Your PC looks great, your communication skills could use some work.

whitie63 Ive been reminded of our global promise that if your not happy we will replace your coolant no matter what ....



Please send me you full name, address and telephone number and we will replace your coolant. If you wish i will also provide you with a new unreleased cleaning kit that is in need of testers (such as your self) ... how ever you must follow instructions on its use to the letter no exceptions. This is a 2 part cleaning solution that we are developing and should clean your system up to Mayhems standards ...

its your choice ... you will be the first out side of the Mayhems team to "test" this new product.

Mick

I accept your offer and to all the other people I definitely apologize for failing to read my voice to text on my phone I have failed the English language in this manner proofreading should always be a high priority before hitting the send button

I can understand the user's point .... if baking soda was in fact required, then it should be on the label, but I do not believe that to be the case and that the bottle instructions are more than adequate.

If you are going to use a base solution in there to counter the acid one, then what you you then use to neutralize the base solution from the sodium bicarbonate .... another acid solution ? If not, then if water flushing is adequate for the base solution, it should be adequate for the acid solution. I am not saying a base flush isn't a good thing ..... AFAIK it may be helpful in removing something else commonly found in a rad. However, one day while working in a lab, someone spilled some sodium hydroxide pellets which I helped picked up, later was wiping my sweaty hands on my pants and what I didn't realize at the time is it wasn't sweat., it was my skin dissolving. When those pants were washed the places where I wiped my hands were simply gone. If you do flush with a base solution as an added step, I would strongly advise a water flush in between as an acid / base reaction could be rather violent.

You will also notice that any medical remedy to getting splashed with mild acids or bases is flushing with large amounts of water.... sulfuric acid, the addition of soap is helpful for skin exposure and with that nasty hydrofluoric stuff a mild baking soda solution helps.....carbolic is not diluted by water and alcohol is recommended first and then water. For eyes, it's always just water.

Getting back to rads, if we were talking about an acid solution, that is the water in the rads, then the only way to lower pH on an acid solution would be to carefully add a base compound and bring the pH up to a neutral level. However, we are talking about resdue on metal here, and any industrial process that uses water soluble acids on metal for etching or other purposes is simply flushed clean with water. I used a vinegar solution and left it in for 6 hours..... I then flushed with alternating hot and cold water at about 4-5 gpm for about ten minutes, followed by three fillings with DW each of which was left in for 10 minutes with a "shakie shakie" action about 4 times during the period. I then used a pH meter, use a swimming pool test kit if unavailable, and got the expected 7.0

In short, while using a base solution is something I would not advise against, unless of course you did flush with copious amounts of water as you'd do for an acid solution, I'd say that Mathems instructions or more than adequate to obtain a neutral pH and not degrade their product.

Flushing with baking soda is not required. Just like flushing with vinegar is not required.

The only thing required is clean components. That can be done with just distilled water.
