Anyone use sysprep from primochill?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I got some advanced lrt tubing from them and they included sysprep inside. I was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff. It's supposed to foam up and clean your loop. Then you're supposed to drain your loop and fill with your coolant. The sysprep is optional right?

Anyones thoughts, comments, experiences?

The problem is having to drain my entire system and waste water.

My main question though is if its bad to have a bit of residue from that sysprep in my loop when it's finished.

It is optional provided you have used some other method of cleaning your loop, especially the radiators.

No reason not to use it as per the manufacturer's instructions. I would be tempted to rinse the loop a couple of times to make sure it is all gone, but only because I don't know what it will do.

As for wasting water, distilled water is cheap - waste away.

Really marketing team? So your product is the only way to prep a loop? Gosh, I suppose I have been doing it wrong for the past 10 years. Thankyou for saving me!

Personally I wouldn't use it. I know it's a bit excessive but here's my thoughts:

1) Primochill still has issues with tubing (plasticizer) and I wouldn't add anything extra to my loop with their tubing even if they recommended it just to be safe

2) I'd be more worried about not having flush the system well enough after using it when it comes to putting coolant into my loop in case it has any unknown side effects to performance or life of the loop

I used it. No negative side effects so far, after about a month. I did notice it got rid of the plasticizer residue I couldn't quite scrub off some of my fittings, so I assume it did the same with my rads and blocks. I also noticed the tubing was significantly stiffer after doing the 24 hour flush, which I don't care about.

What it was stiffer after flushing with water?

Mine too. I guess I was feeling kinda lazy. I didnt feel like using the sysprep and then having to flush it out like 3 times.

I cleaned out my parts using this method. I think this method is freaking amazing and easy.

Check out that video. I just ran my rad and blocks for about 30 minutes each. Worked well for me!
