White stuff on Radiator & inside the loop!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
After 2 weeks of setting the loop i found some foam/white liquid on the corners of the rad and the clear water inside is cloudy/white

Is the stupid battery water i used ate the rad "corrosion"? i put like 20ml of the dye that comes with kit to avoid corrosion and few drops of anti-bacterial

what should i do ?

Did you flush your rad with boiling water before you put it together?

You need to flush your loop, then only run distilled water with a silver kill coil, nothing else.

its residue from the manufacturing process. as Huhh and Jedi said, flush your rad first before installing and at this point, drain your loop and rinse it (add some more water, drain, repeat a few times).

The distilled water i found here is "battery water" but i couldn't find silver kill coil.

I'm guessing the battery water is distilled, but what is this dye?
