I don't know if it's pointless, I use dist. water and anti freeze, no silver, have been using it for... 3 months, I still don't see any green stuff.

Bonus, it smells nice.

anti freeze reduces the thermal capability of water thus making it less effective...

Yea, I've only been using WC for 3 months, I'm by no means an expert on the issue.

The water was distilled, so either some stuff still grew there despite the silver bar, or my Thermochills were not flushed properly. I find the latter explanation implausible since I first poured hot tap water through the Termochills, then filled them partially, shook, repeat, and finally let hot tap water pour through them for 6 hours each...

Now I use anti-freeze in addition to the distilled water, and I have left out the silver bar altogether. Last time I checked, everything was still nice and clean. I had two defective fittings on top of the case, so I let out water from the bottom valve, replaced the fittings, then poured the extracted water back in. It was still crystal clear (plus of course the blue hue from anti-freeze and dye). :>
That's plasticizer coming out of the tubing. Completely normal after a while.

You're right and you're wrong

Antifreeze is very widespread in watercooling in Germany for example, they use a product called G48 which you can get at every gas station and mix at a radio of 1:10 I think (don't quote me on that). Antifreeze stops growth of any organisms in the tubing, like PT Nuke or Silver. The problem with it is if you get the ratio of distilled to anti freeze wrong, as it begins to attack your plexi res, it will start cracking.

This is the major problem with antifreeze. You also have to consider the slightly lower delta dissipation that you will get. Antifreeze lowers the heat carrying capability of the liquid that it is in. Lastly, you really need to be careful with it. Pets, like dogs and cats, love the way antifreeze smells and will attempt to drink it. If they do, it is highly likely that it will kill them.

I would highly suggest using either a biocide or a kill coil as an anti-fungal. Ive had my silver kill coil in my loop for the past 6 months and have yet to see any type of growth, water is still nice and clear.

Coil > anti freeze.
