A kill-coil can be moved from system to system with no troubles other than picking it out of the resevoir and putting it into another. A kill-coil is already enough anti-microbial for a loop, even without saturating the water with it in microscopic form.

To be completely honest, I have never used ANY type of anti-microbial in my loop. I have never had ANY type of mineral build-up, ANY type of scum growth, I have never had ANYTHING abnormal happen to my loop. Granted, the longest it has ever not been changed is probably around 3 months, but still... I don't even use distilled water anymore. For the past 5 months I've been running straight tap water with no problems at all.
Dude, distilled water is cheap and you won't get the buildup of calcium on metal parts inside the loop. Using tap water is just laziness. Not the mention unless you are boiling that tap water there are always going to be microbes in it to start, for which I'm hoping the silver is enough to kill!

enjoy your dead comp in about a year or so

or you can not be a lazy ass, buy some nice silver wire 99/99% make some colloidal silver clean off the silver wire and curl it up put it in the res poor in the colloidal silver and whalaa. you have 2 kill coils that you can remake with over and over with 9 v bottles.

here is my other post

ahh but yah the video does say keep it outa sun light. hmmm Some one should find out what it does in sunlight. if not really an issue if it let it go if so then you need a colored tube system and res something to hinder the light.

due to the large surface area it oxidize quicker, even kill coils will start oxidize after a few years, but you can polish a kill coil, you can't really do that with those tiny particles

now if you make it a a dark loop, sleeve the tubing and get a nice thick res that isn't clear, and have no parts that are clear, it can last a few years with colloidal silver or a kill coil if you use distilled water so you don't get mineral deposits

do you can't have any kind of light it accelerates silver's oxidation, making it a closed loop would help, since the movement of the water and fresh air in contact with the surface of it, it slightly oxygenates the water which also oxidized silver

it's all basic chemistry

So, yeah... Going on month 8ish now and my water hasn't been changed, straight tap water, no microbial, water is perfectly clear.

this sounds really interesting!

I'm really considering to do this....if someone sponsors me another killcoil and some white tubing

maybemaybe........

A colloid is a mixture of very small, solid silver particles. These would be very small but would still be made up of thousand or millions of atoms. They can and will settle, though it may be so slow it might not matter. It's not a solution.

This really depends where you live if this is an option or not. Around where I live I'd get calcium deposits if I tried something like this.
