I'm so glad i used plain old distilled.
I can't imagine the muck those dyes are gonna leave behind...like radioactive splooge.

Quite honestly, it's easy to get out with hot water and vinegar. Drain the loop, fill it up with hot water and some white vinegar, let it cycle. Empty - repeat, and again if needed. Clear tubing + colored liquid always seems to work better (for aesthetics) than colored tubing + clear liquid.

It's not dye. It's the swiftech hydro stuff. I put it in because I can't get pt nuke in Canada and at the pet stor I stared at a shelf of 50 different products and couldn't tell which was the right stuff to act ad a biocide. I could care less about the green color but that's how it comes.

You really honestly believe that isn't dye? If it isn't dye, how is it coloring the water? when you can tell me that, then I will say it isn't dye.

Well I honestly believe your an idiot. Nice comment, lots of positive in there. I added it for protection not the dye. If there is green dye in it then so be it.

You do know that dye is bad for your system. You only need biocide, so anything like a killcoil or copper sulfate. The dye will clog up your blocks and stain your tubing. If you have all copper in your loop you don't have to worry about corrosion, or anything else, just something to keep away the critters.

Put a Canadian pure silver dollar in your res, that will do just fine.

*rolls eyes* He said he can't get that there plus I used Hydrx for a while and no problems. So many people just believe what other people feed them and never try it them selves.

I have seen the dye does, and it makes sense why it doesn't that. You are suspending pigment in a liquid, it is going to separate over time and get stuck in your block. Your blocks are like little filters.

No, he said that he looked and there were tons of options so he didn't bother finding the right one.

You can use something that is pure silver such as a silver coin. I know of another guy that uses a Canadian silver dollar.
