Is it ok to reuse these fittings?

Pulled these out of my pretty neglected loop and found... something on the tips. Insides seem fairly ok, it's just around the rims. Seems like some sort of deposit, similar to what I found in the cpu block. I was running the same Mayhem's Pastel coolant for a number of years. Seems to have held up much better than I expected actually.

How would you clean this off? Is vinegar ok?

These fittings are 1/2" Bitspower barbs. Here's a link: http://www.performance-pcs.com/fitti...2-fitting.html

yes, unless aesthetic matters.


as to blocks & radiators - i'd recommend getting Mayhem's part 1 & 2 blitz kit, + his biocide & inhibitor drop bottles. proper coolant maintenance would'a prevented such extreme "patina"

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Just clean them with a toothbrush and some hot water mixed with vinegar.
They will be fine man, next loop you build please ensure you have either PREMIXED coolant or a kill coil( 99% silver) with Distilled Water.

I like to have fun.

I was using Mayhems Pastel, though way longer than its recommended service life. Does anyone know, are these fittings plated or solid? I.e. has this corrosion exposed a different kind of metal that shouldn't be in the loop with copper and nickel. That's primarily what I'm concerned about.

This is to everyone reading, i used only Distilled water and a kill coil mixing, Copper, Nickel and Acetal, plus whatever a radiator is made of. My 290X waterblock that has just been retired( STILL WORKING) had HEAVY oxidisation on the block, this all took close to 7 years to accumulate. By the time your block is eaten away it will be a long way away. Don't even stress about it.
