PT Nuke Cu with Distilled Water?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I just ordered all the parts for my loop minus tubing and PT Nuke. I was just about to place the order and saw that Sidewinder is out of stock on PT Nuke PHN, although the Cu version is instock. I searched but couldn't really find much on this, but is it OK to use the Cu version with distilled water? If it's better to use the PHN with distilled, does anyone know of any sites that have it instock? Looked for a bit but it looks like it's out of stock everywhere, including Petra's site. Thanks in advance!

PHN is distilled only

CU is for use w/ other fluids/dyes.

And yes you can use CU with distilled if you want to.

Recommend distilled water and a silver kill coil over PT nuke.

Feel the same way. As a lot of people has had issues in their loop with pt nuke. So i say be safe and use the distilled water and kill coil.

It is just easier... no guessing on how much to put in, never have to order more because you changed the loop around or flushed.

Just drop in the coil and forget about the whole thing

Another vote for killcoil. I bought True Silver compression fittings, but they cost more. A single killcoil should be fine.
