What is the white stuff in my tubing? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
It could also be stuff used to clean and leak test the radiator from factory. My reservoir and GPU block looked super foggy after 2 weeks of using my new radiator. I had to take the entire loop apart and clean every component. Distilled white vinegar and hot water really took care of it and quick too.

Make sure your reservoir fill-port is closed on those late night sessions.

i bought clear priomchll primofelx pro lrt anti microbial tubing.

It's been running about a week the res liquid is clear and the tubing is getting cloudy?

It's about 1/2 or so primochill pc pure and the rest distilled (had an aquarium leak)

Question is this cloudiness affecting my loop components adversely -e.g. will block/radiator/pump getting clogged etc..

what are solutions to fixing?

I saw an earlier post about vinegar and hot water... newb question as this hasn't happen to any loops ... is the vinegar and water solution used to clean the radiator, blocks, tubing and pump ... or don't use on pump.

You clean your part with it ... not run the mixture through the loop?

Are there water to vinegar ratio?

other thoughts and solutions...

Umm this is a two year old thread you bumped. You should have started your own thread.

But yeah, Primo chill has had some issues with plastisizer these last few months. Shouldn't be dangerous, but take your loop apart after some time and clean everything out with ketchup, lime/lemon juice or vinegar. Soft toothbrush is also recommended.

If the water in the res starts getting cloudy, take everything apart for sure, but if the water is still clear, keep running it until your next flush.

This is all good information for when I fire up my beast in the next month or so... I just didn't realize how frequently the coolant needed to be flushed. But I guess that's the tradeoff from heatsinks versus water cooling. At least issues like this will give me a reason to maintain my rig more frequently.

welll this is just an issue with this tubing ... depending on what coolant you use you maybe able to go months without changing ... but it's always good to keep an eye on it .. keep in mind too some nickel plated (EK) blocks have special needs as nickel and certain coolants create corrosion and the nickel wears etc ...

...goes same with Koolance and per my understanding also with Aquacomputer waterblocks.
Not to mention Bitspower's plated fittings that had nickel reported missing after use.
