All water-cooling loops (existing as well as new) must be prepared using the included PrimoPrep. For this pre-treatment to work correctly and last following the instructions below is VERY IMPORTANT.
Install your cooling loop and double-check connections to ensure loop is “closed” with no leaks!
Mix 2oz PrimoPrep bottle with 32oz of distilled or DI water. Depending on the size of your system you may need more than one 32oz bottle. Diluting this mixture will cause the pre-treatment to be less effective. Please only mix the 2oz bottle with 32oz of water and than use that "Treated Water".
Fill your system entirely full with the "Treated Water", do this slowly to avoid spillage and creating air pockets.
Once filled with the "Treated Water" please turn on the system or your pump and let run for a minimum of 72hrs (3 days). Running less than 72 hrs will make the treatment less effective. You may use the pc while this treatment is being circulated, so game on!
After 72 hrs drain the "Treated Water" and dispose. PrimoPrep can be safely disposed in your kitchen sink and/or any other drain.
Fill you loop backup with di or distilled water and thoroughly flush your system till water till it runs clean. Inspect drained water for debris or foreign particles. Dispose of drained water. Repeat flush if needed.
Fill with your favorite PrimoChill coolant.
Note: During the “flush” the water may become cloudy and foaming may occur. Don’t worry! This means the PrimoPrep is doing its job! If after flushing the loop debris is still present, please repeat flush again.
