yeah, that's not surprising. Aurora is incredibly tempermental, and amazon users likely did nothing but just dump it into their system. The amount of prep work required for it to not shift is pretty hefty, same for trying to use black dyes.
aside from that - as far as additives go. X1 or Biocide+ inhibitor+ are phenomenal products. I used x1 in a soft tube sytsem i didn't properly clean, and ignored it for 5 years. Only took 5 minutes to clean the blocks back to new (minus some copper patina)

for sure, mick assumes his users do their due dilligence, and they don't. the amazon reviews are pretty funny. too bad they didn't stumble on this little thread first. I wonder if we show up on the 1st page when googling mayhems? I can't really test it, my results would be tainted.
imagine running that body dissolving grade acid straight, then filling w. coolant, turning on your dual pump at full blast... your radiators would turn into sprinklers.
as stated, step 1 is overkill for most folks, unless they're trying to build a top tier beast with funky coolant, and then continue to run said funky coolant as a daily driver.
you can easily recreate this at home with less caustic stuff, and a simple baking soda wash.
orrrr, just do it the old school way (lots of hot water), and use normal coolant = 99% of problems solved.
