Suggest best coolant to use

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I now we are constantly tinkering.. ira-k I know you are!!!

I want to order some premixed non cunductive coolant.....
I have looked at ProIce/prochill and the fluidxp + extreme

proice/prochill $20 fluidxp+extreme $35

Do you know some thing better?
Is it worth $35 for the fluidxp?

Also I couldn't find in the spec were they have an anti microbial additive anti algee...I did notice I did notice that proice/prochill sells this stuff called Utopia that does that!(syringed additive)

Could you suggest to me what you or others have found that works the best?
Also whats the best way to flush my system before the new fluid./...I heard White vinager and distilled water themn rinse with distilled....and how long do you let it circulate

Distilled Water + Biocide + Zerex (or antifreeze) = best performance, price, longevity

Non-Conductive stuff gets very expensive since it costs $30-50 to refill a loop each time. My suggestion above should cost $5.
Once again...
