You must use either biocidal drops or a silver kill coil unless you want algae growing in your loop and turning it a bad green color (and also clogging up the loop). It's a really gross and hard process to clean your loop and the cost of replacing the tubing after a bio infection is usually much more than the cost of a biocide.

However if your loop isn't exposed to light or UV of any kind you should be good to go. RatDog runs his loop inside of his 700D which is run in a cabinet, making it very dark inside. He doesn't run any sort of biocide.

Personally I'd just get it, it's so cheap and as long as you use it correctly it basically guarantees you'll never have any problems like that.

I strongly recommend Mayhems Biocide!

It beats PT-Nuke , Silver and Kill coil to efficience and performance.
And it provides anti corrosion safety as well

Considering Mayhems biocide is actually made from exactly the same chemical that PT-Nuke is, it's not any better.

They're both made from Copper (II) Sulfate, and they are all equally effective (including a silver kill coil)

you need more than you think. I dont know about your loop, whats in it, where the radiator is placed, etc etc.. You dont need both bio and a silver strip, either would work perfectly fine. Thank god you read around and decided to stray from dyes
