Change the water every so often and you should be fine. I change the coolant in my loop once a year, its seems to be enough.
Why would I need two bacteria/algue inhibitors?

The more I put into that loop the worse heatconductivity will become.
I want to use the least possible amount of additive so my dist. Water will only lose a marginal amount of its heat conductivity.

I know the rumors and accusations of EK regarding PT-Nuke are yet unconfirmed and need to be exposed to scientific attendency.
But still it gives you a gut feeling and I think I won´t use PT-Nuke on my Nickel blocks.

As in terms of color...I would never use dye^^ I had UV Green dye from Feser 2004/17/05 it gunked up and destroyed my WC system-.- never again.....I have Primochill 1/2" UV Green Tubing now


Because in Germany Kill Coils are nowhere to be found I will have to order them from specialtech cause they ship internationally but shipping will cost quite a bit =/.
Do you guys a retailer or place that is closer to germany and would sell it?

Can you buy a strip of silver from a jeweler and make a silver kill coil?

I bought my silver strips in the US off eBay and made my kill coils. But many report getting a strip of silver from a commercial jeweler so it might be worth some phone calls?

Good luck.
