Great... Now I was looking at the Intensifier dye...



Do I need something besides this... like this...

Pure Performance Coolant

or can I just use a gallon of Distilled water from Walmart? I assume that I would need some sort of biocide if I went that route correct?

Just good ol distilled from Walmart would work fine. And yes, you want some sort of biocide as well. Either a silver kill coil, or some fluid additive like Mayhems Biocide Extreme, PTNuke, or IandH Dead Water.

Yes that plug would work. I would add a little bit of the chemical additive as well as you can never be too careful. If you see build up and get a clog it is not the dye repeat not the dye. It is Algae that was dyed by the dye.

Gotcha. I just ordered the PC Intensifier along with Mayhems Biocide Extreme. I should be ready to rock!
