    I will be assembling my first hardline loop with a pastel fluid, just waiting for the last waterblock.

    I have ordered a Blitz pro kit to clean to new EK rads out but with it been a new system should i also do the second part with the loop assembled with all the fitting/blocks been new or would just giving them a flush with water be fine to reduce the risk of color changes?

    Thanks.

    Run part 2 once your loops built, it cleans whilst your also leak testing.

    Thanks I was unsure if it was needed for new equipment or just when your changing fluids to get rid of any remnants of the old one.

    Always recommended with new bits no matter the manufacture especially with coloured fluids.

    9/10 when a fluid issue happens it's down to the ph being knocked out of whack with flux and other bits from items not being flushed correctly.
