Sorry, was being Tongue In Cheek, did not mean to exude Offense. No Offense was taken, more amused that we were given your blessing for spending our money how we wish. I was being a D**k. LOL.
Truth is, there are many solutions out there that work for people. Just because one works in one system for one person, does not necessarily mean it will work for another in a different system. So I find the one size fits all solutions to be a bit humorous.
That said, the closest thing I have personally found that has worked in my systems so far (and I don't have the same years in custom water cooling as many of you guys do on here, I just have the benefit of caring for and maintaining a lot of custom liquid cooled systems in my relatively short time in this segment) is the Mayhem's Biocide/Inhibitor Drops. They actually are not that expensive at all, $30 total for a bottle of each, and that One Purchase will maintain about 12-15 Systems or so a year, that's not bad for the price at all. If you are only Maintaining One System with 2 Liters of Fluid, well now that one purchase is enough to last you at least 5 years or more (depending on the shelf life of the drops, which is unclear to me at this time.) Either way, I don't think that could be considered expensive for the piece of mind it gives you.
Not at all knocking yours or anyone else's method though, if your method works for you, then it works for you and no one can take that from you. As I said though, there is usually not a One Size Fits all method, and I am sure there is someone this might not work well for, it just seems to be the one thing I have found that has worked in a wide ranging of climates and loops, so its one I feel comfortable promoting without worrying it bringing harm to someone's system.
