Will corrosion occur in this system? - Page 2

Guys I know...lol...the issue here is not the biocide, it's the anti-corrosive additive which as far as I can see, only come in green, blue, and red, not orange which I need.

It's been stated you don't need an anti-corrosive in your all copper loop. The rate at which copper corrodes itself is so slow, it's almost unnoticed in the typical lifespan of a water cooling loop.

I like to run a anti-corrosive in my all copper and brass loops...Distilled water is supposed to be a 7 on the ph scale which is a neutral, most of it I've tested with ph strips is 6 to 6.5 ph...That means it will be a little corrosive to any metals in the loop..Pentosin or any anti-freeze will raise the ph back up to a neutral or more base state, its not as corrosive when you are at 7 or above..It also helps to replace ions that have been striped out of the distilled water from the distilling process, with a ph of 7 it wont be pulling copper ions from your blocks as much...I try to keep my ph at 7 or a little above...

I have known guys who have run straight distilled with NP'S to, so just do what you think is best...I just like playing with this stuff so stripping it and all that is just fun to me...

Its explained much better in these 2 links then I
could ever do...Great stuff, every one even remotely interested in WC'ing should read these...
