Where to get watercooling Loop Treatment/Biocide

I have troubles finding them. Alot on amazon. But i need it ASAP. Filled up my loop with boiled water for about 2 weeks now. And its getting cloudy. Need to flush and use pretreatment (which i did not do too) and add biocide to the distilled water (any other alternative?)

So where can i get them locally.

Erm bro, you watercooling components or lau huo tang ah? U gonna spoil the pump if its boiling water. Normal distilled water is the maximum. Besides, the water is used tk take away heat from components. If water temp is higher than components temo, how to take away heat?

U can consider ztomiclabs in lazada. But its coloured type.

Ztomiclabs is local shop at bedok. But a quick check shows no one else liao. So either coloured concentrate or ppc liao. And plz use distilled water for now. Boiled water wun remove minerals. Add a silver coil for now but remove when using other than distilled water.

Performance-pcs from USA. They have a wide range of wc stuff and usually have some discount codes with min spending. Sign up for their newsletter.

I didnt really clean rads thoroughly, just put some water + vinegar, seal it and shake it hard, then remove water and rinse it.

My suggestion?

Dismantle everything.

Head to ppc buy this few items....

Mayhems blitz cleaning
New tubings
Get a proper coloured coolant which already have biocides inside
If you still want to use distilled water, buy silver coil or bioxide and add in a small amount. The Mayhem's Blitz cleaning have a pH tester. Use it to gauge your liquid acidity or alkali level.
Else just buy a colour coolant which will solve the issue.

For your blocks, dismantle by opening up the blocks. Use Colgate and toothbrush to brush everything. This should be very clean. Once done air dry it before putting it back.

Use the Mayhems blitz to wash the entire loop and radiator. Rinse it off with distilled water. Once done then add fresh coolant in.

Your mistake, boiled water is no less different from tap water. Yes boiling it may kill any organism inside. But it is not full proof. Buy proper distilled water or deionised water. Or to save the headache, use normal coloured coolant or clear coolant that already have biocides in it.

I used Mayhems Blitz Pro Cleaning System from PPC when setting up my WC rig the first time. It is enough for two rads and everything else.
