Mick, another +rep to you.

If you need other testers, let me know. I have 3 entire University labs at my disposal and would be glad to help out anyway I can. You have earned respect multiple times round now!

Same hear Mayhems +Rep!! Great service!

Also, If you need a tester for anything down the road, hit me up. Either for personal use or my store, I'm always doing something liquid cooled, I'd be happy to run stuff through the ringer for you.

What @stickg1 means is, the baking soda rinse and the vinegar rinse AREN'T required to have a clean system. The vinegar rinse is to help remove dye buildup in a system that's been running a "heavy" dye. If you did a wash with vinegar, then you do need to neutralize the acid somehow, and that's where the bicarbonate comes in. BUT, if your building a new system, with all new hardware, you don't need to do either of them, you can just rinse your loop with DI water. At least that's what my take on his comment was.

Exactly, I was kind of brief though because I'm up on a roof repairing a chimney! My cut man is slow so I have down time between boards!

You are right that is not required, but it is recommended as a precaution and says so right on the bottle label. There have been plenty of people who just flushed with distilled water and still experienced unwanted issues. What harm would it do to spend a dollar getting a box of baking soda and doing 1 or 2 extra flushes compared to getting some sort of issue that could cost you more time and money in the long run?

Don't get me wrong, I've always just used tap water and then distilled water to flush my components, but baking soda does have cleaning properties as well so it's more than reasonable to use it.

I would say 7~10 flushes would be the bare minimum if it's a new radiator.

@Mayhem-
I've been running Mayhems Pastel Sunset Yellow since November 2013 now and its slowly but surely been getting darker and darker. Color started off nice and bright, but now it is about the color of orange juice. Loop has never seen any other coolant- have only used Mayhems Sunset Yellow Pastel mixed with distilled per the instructions. No other additives, chemicals, coils, etc have been added.

Here's the progression:


I don't think this is normal at all. I had wanted to switch over to Mayhems Pastel White, but the color changing like this with white coolant would be pretty awful. Any ideas? I thought I would ask, maybe its a bad batch or something. I'd prefer not to move to distilled w/ a coil, but the coolant is not at all aesthetically pleasing like this.

Thanks,

Try to drain a little out into a wine glass or something crystal clear and see if it's still orange.
