Not sure what the white buildup is in my drain line coiled up under my drive bays. Obviously there is no flow through it since its a dead end. Should I be concerned? I was going to wait until spring to drain and do a cleaning but now I'm not sure. Been running Mayhems pastel berry blue for 12 months with no temp issues. The pic doesn't do it justice, half of the line has a milky white color to it.





The residue is ONLY in (or noticeable) the drain line. The rest of the loop still looks very berry blue, like some smurf ****e.

This image looks like the tubing is sort of stained. You can see the white mix with the dye when moving the line. this is right at the end, just before the valve.

some pastel coolants develop white buildup if the system/pump hasn't run in a while. since this is a drain line and not much flow comes through, it's just the mix separating and settling.

You are fine. Pastel is a nano fluid so if you have a dead spot in your loop like a drain line, the particles can begin to build up and stick to the inside of the tubing. It isn't uncommon.
