Orange and White residue? Rust and Calcium build up? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
did you flush out the rad?
the reason it might be in the ek wb is because it might be the most restrictive component in your loop meaning the water has more time to leave residue in the block. . .

I highly doubt the issue is because of the block or the fittings, those are both very commonly used together (I do myself) without any issues. just clean the block out and keep using it.

I would recommend flushing out and cleaning all of your components as well as possible and just putting it back together.

btw, which koolance res do you have? some of their res's have steel in them, that could be what is causing the issue...

It's puss. Your loop is infected.

Can't seem to find them anymore, but the one I have is made of glass, a fill up on top and two openings at the side and bottom. It's very small in size.

yep, that is the res I was thinking about. those metal rings the fittings thread into are steel. take a close look at them and see if you notice any rust or other corrosion.

edit: another question, was the orange stuff at the inlet to the EK block or was it on the outlet?

Both inlet and outlet are rusted. The top hole at the ek wb has the most rust. What would you recommend for a replacement reservoir? Thanks btw

was the top one in or out? that block can be run either way. have you opened it up to see if there was anything inside it yet?

as for the reservoir, it is up to you, you may not even need a different one, i was just recommending that you check it to see if that was the issue...

yes top is inlet. I'm probably not gonna install any reservoir. It will just be a tube reservoir.

At this point before you reuse any of those components, OPEN UP THE BLOCKS TO CHECK FOR RUST. It's been suggested repeatedly and you're not responding to it. If there is rust in your fittings, there will, by definition, be rust in your blocks as it circulates through your loop it has to collect somewhere. And some of it will be in your blocks if it's in your loop.

Be sure to TAKE THE BLOCKS APART and CLEAN THEM thoroughly. That can be steel rusting in your koolance rad, that can be galvanic corrosion but that's usually not rust, that's the white pock-mark stains you see more than likely. You're silver kill coil didn't cause this directly, but it could have been a component of the problem. Also, don't reuse that water, use fresh de-ionized water.

Not de-ionized water, distilled water. Di water is very corrosive and bad for your loop. Distilled is safe.
