I know they sell pre-rinse kits, but kind of expensive compared to home brew solutions.

Any insight? Thanks in advance! biggrin.gif

Just pour hot water in and give it a good shake and drain. Repeat this until water coming out of the rad is clear with no debris in it.

PS- use a glove thumb.gif

Hot distilled? doesn't tap water have it's own mixture of crap that I really wouldn't want to put into the radiator as a pre-rinse?
I always follow this when flushing my rads.

It turns out tap water is extremely useful for flushing and sediment in our drinking water is very easy to flush. I literally put my rads under the faucet and just let hot water flow into one port and out the other for about a half hour each. Then flush several times with distilled and you are good to go.

To bad my tap water is so hard with mineral deposits I couldn't imagine what it would do to my rads, have to clean my shower head each month cause it clogs up with deposits. I use filtered water and vinegar to start then rinse well with distilled seemed to work well.

Yea, our water needs to be filtered before it comes out of the shower head or it destroys our skin. I'm going to assume mine is a bit too rough for this use as well.

It's all good, distilled water is cheap cheap cheap

My water is really hard too, I live in San Antonio, TX. I didn't realize it was harming my skin but it is absolutely possible. The thing is deposits are left due to evaporation; if you flush after with distilled water it flushes right out. Other things that get left in rads can be pretty stubborn though. If you watch the Mayhems Blitz videos he actually hooks his loop right up to the faucet and runs it for several hours and recommends this method as part of the process.

I usually just boil some distilled mix a bit of vinegar in let it cool a tiny bit so I can handle it without burning myself poor in rad let it sit until cool and shake it, if I see nothing come out i'll repeat a couple more times and once done give it a rinse out with plain distilled and call it done.

I dunno about using hardwater from the city. there are things in alot of cities' water supplies that might not rinse out so easily.
I have uranium in my city's water supply
