thats what I did , hot tap water , you can rinse with distilled if you really want to but between you and me that a little obsessive, do NOT run tap water through your system though , that really is bad for it , bottled water all the way , any bottled water will do , walmart 4L jugs ( can we say jugs ) ..

I'm talking about just to flush the rads. I don't even have all my parts in yet so I figured this was something I could go ahead and take care of while I'm waiting. I'm also going to be using Mayhems premix coolant in my rig whenever I get it all put together...

Tap water is too risky for me, even if you end up flushing it with distilled. Why not warm up some distilled in the first place and flush/rinse it what that?

I have 3/8" x 5/8" tubes and love them more so then 1/2" x 3/4"

The flux wont degrade anything it might just screw with your coolant.

Cool. So what I gathered is as long as I am fine with the temps it wont hurt to wait and clean it out with the next flush?

I now do a 3 part flush

1. Hot vinegar
2. Hot water, tape the tubing to the facet, let it run for 15 mins
3. 1 gallon distilled water

I used to just do steps 1 and 3, but I tried a vinegar rinse on one of my old rads just to see what would happen. I used a coffee filter to filter the rinse out, I was shocked at how much crap came out of just one rinse with it. Not only did it discolor the vinegar (looked like a greenish blue) but metal shaving and among other crap came out of it. It took 2 more rinses before it came out clean. The only thing I ran though that rad was distilled water and a kill coil.
