Water Cooling Flushing Question

  1. Hi,

    I've had my water cooling system for roughly a week and am totally displeased with my current fluid (FluidXP) so have decided to switch to distilled with a few caps of zerex

    What should I use to flush the system out? I'n run distilled thru it a few times but not sure if its cleared all the residue .

    i've heard a few people say CLR and hydrogen peroxid but my research has said both these agents cause either corrosion or tinting of copper .

    any suggestions?

    I'd say to unplug the pump's input to plug it in a clean water + antifreeze bucket and put the system's output somewhere else and let this run for some time.
