Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I emptied and refilled my custom loop a couple weeks ago and it turned into foam-ish like. Temperatures seem fine but I don't know why it's doing it. What do you all think?

Are you sure its foam and not just air bleeding out?

I thought of that, but it doesn't seem to have changed at all since I refilled it two weeks ago. It's not really a foam, when I look in the reservoir it just looks like a pink liquid. Just strange how the one side is completely normal and the other is opaque with all the bubbles.

Open the refill port and "scratch"/move along the surface with a "soft" objekt. If they are bubles they should go away. The next time maybe clean the reservoir better before refilling.

Otherwise take a sample and check how it looks. Worste case you need to drain the loop and clean everything.

I cleaned it pretty well I thought. When I open it up, it definitely seems like a foam.

Didnt clean it well enough.

 

After flushing a system, its probably a good idea, especialy if u intend to use some kind of colored mix, to run straight distilled for a week. If it discolors or shows up any debris, then u know u need to flush it some more.

Did you clean it with detergent?
