Plus a drop of anti-bacterial stuff like PTNuke. Throw in reactive tubing and a UV light and you get a clean rig that looks cool in the dark.

You can use either one or both if you want, you basically just place the silver coil in the part of the loop and pretty much forget about it, since it's 99.9% silver it'll kill just about all the microbials in there. The Nuke could be used just to be a helping hand.

I've just flushed my Loop today and had no problems with stained block res or piping. I was using De-ionised water and Swiftech's Hydrx additive which is supposedly known for staining tubes and reservoirs and clogging waterblocks. Not a single problem after not flushing for over a year. And only occasional top-ups every month or so. With additives I think it's all about judging how lean or rich you run it. I think all the guys who end up with stained hardware are using too much additive.

I'm now using de-ionised water and a few drops of PT-nuke with clear tubes. All is well.

If you local hardware shop does carry it then by all means go for it. Just make sure that it is 99.9% silver. Anything less I wouldn't stand for.

Is this okay to use Petra's Tech PT Nuke Concentrated Biocide 10ml even though it's blue not clear?

I pulled apart the block and at least six of the channels were 100% blocked...plus it looked gross. I think the dye, along w/putting too much bacterial agent in my reservoir, did the trick. Now it's just a silver coil, a drop of anti-bacterial solution, and blue tubing and no gunk and steady temps.
It sounds like you're bacterial agent might have reacted with it.

Since you'll be using 1 or 2 drops, it won't matter. It'll be in so much water you'll never see the blue color since the water will dilute it. Just don't use the whole bottle.

I don't disagree...but I still think anytime you use anything other than distilled water you run the risk of sediments. The second loop i did w/distilled, the coil, and one drop of PTNuke was spotless a month later when I upgraded components. That said...some folks have reported using dyes and Feser fluids without any trouble. It all comes down to what feels right for you (like a lot of things...).

Anyway...without discussion like RED FLUID V. WATER...FIGHT!!! or EK V. Koolance...FIGHT!!!!.....where we would we be???
