Mayhems Deep Red Turns Deep Pink/Purple Help!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

Some advice please

After filling my loop for the first time I added a few drops of Mayhems deep red and got the colour I wanted. However after a few days the translucent red turned into a pinky/purple colour. At first I thought that I put too many drops of dye in, so I flushed out the system and tried again. Unfortunately after a few days the same thing happened.

Any ideas???

What are you using in your loop?

Which tubing? Blocks? What are you using for coolant? Are you using a biocide or killcoil?

This is all important info.

Your issue is the rads ... You need to flush you system with Mayhems Blitz (once we've released it)

I appreciate the advise but that isn't a viable solution when the product doesn't exist yet. You could at least let me what is happening and tell me what I can do in the meantime. I flushed those rads out numerous times before filling the loop.

Are you saying that certain mayhems dyes don't work well with copper???

http://www.overclock.net/u/362899/whitie63 had the same issue so we sent him a sample kit,,he allso said he flushed his rads well and after sending him our cleaning kit he found that our cleaning kits did a much better job. If you have an issue with a rad company not cleaning their products then i suggest you approach said company and ask them why and stop trying to blame other for there inadequacy.

You bought a cheap rad now you paying for it. "you get what you pay for in this world". If that sounds a bit harsh im afraid its life and we don't hang around the bush when it comes to saying how it is.

You may Also consider that we've been selling pastel for more than two years before they brought their new full copper not so clean rads out and it wasn't until they released their product that people started having issues not only with our products but also with other companies fluids esp red.

I would suggest you take everything out and clean it all. I put hot water and vinegar (vinegar is cheap so don't be cheap with it tongue.gif ) in my rads and let them soak for an hour or 2 with a few good shakes once in a while. The water that comes out usually isn't that clean thumb.gif (and I never use dyes, so it's definitely some kind of dirty stuff from the rads )
After that, I flush with distilled. Just flushing a rad isn't sufficient IMHO, regardless of brand.

PS: wear oven mits when handling a rad with near-boiling water in it biggrin.gif

Yes that does sound a little harsh I spent a lot of money on this system, Consulted the forums for weeks before I chose my parts and not at any point did I think I was "buying a cheap rad". Obviously my fault. Not sure if this matters or not but the dye I bought isn't pastel

I appreciate your honesty in the matter but your delivery sucks mate. I'm not looking for a war or out to blame anyone I just wanted to know why it was happening that's all.

Thanks Bloitz I appreciate the advise. Flushing with vinegar was something I didn't do.

That was the kind of information I was looking for smile.gifthumb.gif
