kevindd992002 This has always been the problem with Mick. I mean he's great together with his products and all but he is lacking attention to detail like this little things. As an obsessive compulsive person myself, I find these tiny errors potentially turning into something big if you take them very literally. No offense meant Mick, I know you're just one person behind all these but I just wanted to point out my observation.

skupples there's no foaming involved, you're essentially diluting pool acid n letting it slowly bubble away. at least, unless you're rehabbing a radiator that was previously doubling as a culture.


at this point, you're fine. time to drain, fill, empty, rinse, etc then assemble & onto part 2.

Eulerian I have a question about Blitz Pt 1.

The newest instructions (via the manual) are a little inconsistent with the video online. The manual says to tilt the radiator to help release any trapped air, and then after filling, slosh it around a bit, then let it sit for 6-12 hours. In other words, the manual says: fill, tilt, cap, slosh, wait - and that's it.

The video, on the other hand, says to always follow the manual since it will be the most up to date and possibly render the video obsolete, sure. That said, it mentions that being able to slosh it around is a bad sign (in that you can still fill it) so after sloshing, you should keep adding liquid. It also mentions shaking once in a while over the waiting period. In other words, the video says: (fill, cap, slosh) a few times until no noise, then wait (shaking occasionally over the duration).

I figured the newest manual omitted all of this description in case it was a new mixture / possibly more foaming or something, that would let it expand into all the crevices without as much manual intervention, but it's unclear.

Right now I have the liquids in the radiators overnight (10 hours now) and I can still slosh it around. But now I am concerned: Is the manual wrong? Should I have been filling until I can't hear any more sloshing? Should I have been shaking every couple of hours?

Do I need to empty the rads and do it again "properly"? If so, is it unsafe to be using Blitz twice in a row like this?

Thanks.

How is that Boogaloo working out for you? Must be pretty good stuff to be working for a decade without issues. Any idea if they still sell it?

skupples the bottles we're getting in the states are months older than what're going out in europe (home of mayhems)

order V2, whatever shows up is fine. I've used X1 non-eco or V2 or Boogaloo for almost a decade now.

yes.

From a different thread, I was told that they are the same thing. The "v2" isn't labeled on the bottle as v2, but labeled as Eco. (I think Mayhems has a branding/marketing issue. ) If you go on the mayhems website and look at the product page for "x1", you'll see that they all have a "v2" title, but the bottle is "eco."

biocide+ and inhibitor+ aren't gonna stain.


note - the bottles I got the other day are mislabeled as well... someone used white out to cover up the "blue" on the ECO series clear bottles

imagine mick sitting there with a white out pen like "frick frick frick, that's $5K worth of mislabeled product!"

skupples its an in-house error, that's for sure. They do all their own labeling in house now.

either way, it still smells like X1.

X1 (UV) CLEAR
They didn't bother crossing off the "UV" on my bottle of "X1 UV Clear" Maybe it's clearly UV? I still think it was just lazy typesetter using cut/paste. I also noticed there wasn't any type of date code or expiration date on my bottle, but I'm assuming that the new "eco" packaging indicates it was made in the past year, so I doubt it's expired.

I wonder what "eco" is supposed to indicate. I suspect "ecology friendly", but many people might assume it means "this is the cheaper stuff."
