I would avoid anti-corrosive fluids if they are not needed to reduce any complications such as fluids breaking down / staining tubing etc.

Mayhems biocide is the same thing as PT Nuke Cu, copper sulphate solution. It will do the same job as a killcoil or PT Nuke PHN, you don't really need anything more.

Thanks a bunch, that post really educated me. + rep for you, sir.

Thanks for the tip but I'm too lazy. I know pt nuke is good, but it can't possibly be the only biocide out there that is any good. In the light of GingerJohns post I'll be ordering Mayhems Biocide for my demineralised water. gunner2.gif

It's just Copper (II) Sulphate at the end of the day. Doesn't matter what brand or name, it's all the same ingredient.
