HI OCN! Long time lurker first time poster. I purchased a Rasa kit a few months ago and have been more than happy. All the parts are of great quality (except the thermal paste) and it's the best bang for the buck kit you can get. However after my initial install, the tubing started to haze and turn yellowish over time. I had a distilled water and a bunch of pt nuke in the loop so I figured it can't be an infection. Also while the tubes looked horrible the water in the res was clear. I took apart my loop yesterday to replace a kinked piece of tubing and saw that the water in the loop had a yellow tint to it as well. Upon closer inspection, it appears that one of the four screws in the res that hold the pump in place was fully corroded. The other three looked brand new but this one was completely toast. My buddy got the same kit (we purchased them together and had them shipped at the same time) and he has the same issue. Wondering if anyone else has this problem, and should I worry about the rust in the water? Can it eat away at the block or rad? And are there any safe additives to put in the loop to prevent it from getting worse? Thanks OCN.
