Red water in green coolant? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
A small amount of blood will not affect the thermal properties of your coolant. Organisms should also not be much of a concern, as blood tends to be mostly free of them (unless you are very sick).

I would be more concerned with your computer thinking you made a pact with the devil or something. Is your bus running at 666 MHz by any chance?

My computer is powered by human sacrifices.
but seriously, i don't think you'd have put enough blood in your loop to contaminate anything unless you cut your finger off and attached the hose to it. Probably corrosion like stated above.

did you flush all you parts before building this loop. i`m guessing the answer is no and what your getting is all the slag (manufacturing residue) being flushed out of the system. as you said its sitting at the bottom of the loop this would be because there will be minute copper filings (which would explain the color) heavier than water so they sink.

your only option to get rid of this is to drain the loop and refill with fresh coolant an this time think about flushing all the gunk out properly

OK, OK, OK. To everyone's questions and speculation of either algae, blood, copper manufacturing leftovers, or the redness of the actually tubing, I believe I have a conclusive answer.
Notice how the edges of the tubing are redder that the rest of the hose.

notice how the blood on the kleenex is a completely different shade than the color of the hose.

30 seconds later............
I realized both my statements are completely wrong. Of course the sides will be redder than the the rest of the hose, because the rest of those is filled with a liquid the opposite color of red. And the kleenex is a different shade because thats three days old blood. I just havent gotten to throw it away yet......

so... drain the coolant in a bucket or large bottle, then see if the tubing is still red.
that is, if you really care much about it.

DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!

When people ask what liquid you use, you get to say ''MY BLOOD!!!"

It also adds a personal touch, that Cosmos is literally your soul sister now. Your blood flows inside you as it does in it.

The only thing left to do: grab a needle, fill it with Primochill, and inject a small amount into the vein of your arm. I don't care if it's toxic, your body will probably protect you from whatever, but it would be the coolest thing I have ever seen.

+rep now, a million more to come if you actually do this.
