More addatives in my loop?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just finished setting up my first loop. I used Feser One Cooling Fluid in the loop. It contains 0.005% Ethylene glycol. Says it protects Copper, aluminium brass and nickel. Should i add something else?

go buy distilled water.

don't use coolants will addictives with dye in them. they will break down and gunk up your loop

Distilled Water + a silver kill coil is the weapon of choice by 90% of the forum members here due to many people having issues where colored coolant or color additives separate out from the water and restrict flow in blocks after some time.

I personally tell people they can use whatever they want. It is their setup but they shouldn't get mad if there is gunking in their loop they were forewarned about a possible outcome.

On the other side of things there are those who never have that gunking issue with their coolant and use it over distilled water.

As long as you have a .999% silver coil in your loop you are ok you can add PT nuke if you are overly concerned in addition to the silver coil.

Sorry for double post this one can get deleted.

P.S. I recommend distilled over coolant but I though I would play the devils advocate for coolants.

if the fluid you just has the anti corrosion in it your fine
dont add other things to it

most of us run distilled, silver koil, and some pk nuke
thats it

I add a little fessers corrosion blocker to mine just for extra care even though I dont mix metals

The fluid i use has Ethylene glycol in it, witch is anti corrosion. i have a small bottle of Anti Corrosion here, so maybe add another drop or two?

Go far away from glycol, rather use prooved anti corrosion in prescribed amounts.
