mineral oil back to water

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, just a quick question. im piecing together a watercooling setup and am going for used parts. i have a friend that is willing to give me a swiftech pump. problem being, he used mineral oil in his loop. he claims to have cleaned it out, but is there anything to be cautious about? is there anyway to clean out the oil for good? i will be using regular distilled water and dont want any ill side effects

any help would be great

thanks

run it in a solution of dish soap to get rid of the mineral oil residue, just go from a 5 gallon bucket to the sink or something. Do that until you think the oil is cleaned out then fill the bucket up with just water and run it to get rid of the soap residue
