What are you all using to clean out your loop between pastel uses? Or how are you cleaning out your loops?
post #5892 of 15470
the usual way is to run a vinegar solution through the loop for a while then run a baking soda solution afterwards. dump that out, refill with distilled water and check ph to make sure the loop has a neutral ph level. mayhem is coming out with a multi part cleaning system though. don't know when it will hit the shelves though.

This.

It sounded like in Europe you can pre order from Mayhem now and in the states PPCs has pre ordered a bunch. So I'd say it should be available relatively soonish wink.gif

Im thinking of getting Mayhems Pastel UV White, but wasn't sure which tubing to get for a better look under UV....

What do you guys think would look better?

Primochill Advanced LRT Crystal Clear or XSPC FLX Premium Clear/UV ?



At the moment, i have Primochill UV Blue tubing, but I kinda want to go the Pastel White look now frown.gif

Hi guys!

My loop is going to have about a week of downtime on account of burning out my Acquacomputer XT Ultra. (Sigh. Everything was working perfectly, and I had just spent a couple hours sorting out the mess of cables in my system. When I restarted, I must have put the USB cable in backwards. Sigh.)

Since I had filled the system with Mayhems Pastel White UV just yesterday, I really don't want to pour that precious nectar down the drain - so I ran the fluid through a coffee filter into clean glass jar. Two questions:

- To reuse the fluid, I just pour it out of the jar, back into the res and top it off with some more from my original plastic bottle - maybe through the filter again, right?

- I've left my loop in place - just removed the pump/res combo to send it in to the manufacturer. Do I need to rinse the loop or can I leave it sitting for a week exactly as is - with beads of leftover mayhems fluid here and there? (I'm a little worried that it could evaporate, leaving pigment or residue behind.

I would wash out your Rads. Also Make sure to flush your new Pump/res combo.

I would also run the fluid through the filter again before reuse. I don't see an issue with reusing the fluid.

Pretty much this. It can be reused without issue.

Also, in between using it, make sure you are storing it appropriately. The mayhems bottles are good if you have them because they block out light pretty good, but really you want something air-tight and in a cool dark location.

Thanks guys!

One question: Is there any chance that the will dry out in my tubes and leave residue that sticks to the sides?
