I wouldn't, even if you keep the loop cleaned out. Just use food coloring or that inky stuff in Sharpies.

Then just use UV-reactive tubing and straight distilled, you won't have to worry about it.

I see no problem using Feser F1 Fluid. Will give you exactly what you want.

OK, how about making your own res that, itself, is UV-reactive?

Edit; here's another option for the same thing.

It should be fine, but he doesn't want to use that, he wants UV-reactive stuff for some reason. ALL UV-reactive coolant gunks up the loop, no (known) exceptions.

Go ahead and use the Feser if you're so damn stubborn about wanting your res colored.

Be sure to post back in a couple months when your blocks have absorbed the dye into the copper.

buy colored tubing if you want a color... fesser dye is pigment based, pigment = particulate = the color depositing in your porous metal like your waterblock and radiator...

boil some water, salt and RIT dye... dye your res... done.

Now that I think about it, I wonder if there's any water-based UV-reactive coloring that can be added...

Yes you can use any dye you want, just be careful though afterwards as it will stain your tubing.. not permanently but you will have to flush it out and clean it 2 remove the staining.. If your gonna use a dye i honestly would go with Primochill UV coolant (its great, comes with 2 dyes to match the UV bottle, u add how much dye you want to match the colour you want ) if not go with some primochill coloured uv tubing + Distilled water
