How to clean the C element and the face tube and to kill the fungus

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Please can anyone help me to solve this problem before reinstall the elements and put the glycol?
Thanks

rinse everything thoroughly with Isopropyl Alcohol. This will kill off any spores and won't damage the c-element.

Done!
Many many thanks.

And now: you know that in Italy is very difficult (read impossible) to find the Freeze Coolant.
So I only use the glycol. Is it right the blend 70% glycol and 30% glycerin?
Thanks

Hello

Best to use triethylene glycol mixed 90/10 with distilled water. And replace the steel fillhole screws with stainless steel screws to avoid corrosion later.

Hello Tim,
I'm glad to ear you.
Today I made some serches to find trirthylen glycol but it is very difficult.
So it is easy for me use the ethylen glycol. What is the right blend?
And then is it easy to find the new stainless steel screws?
Best Regards

I'm already search to buy from this site but the selling is opened only for Canada and USA.

Probably I will use the triethylen glycol.

Many thanks

Hello Dear Tim,
I have made a disaster.
In these days I have drown the old glycol from each tube and clean all.
Before to put the new triethylen glycol in each tube I have cleaned each C-element and smear a very light coating of RTV Silicon around. Closed and fix all.
Today I have clean each hole up the tube and the little fillhole screw to deoxidize them. I have cleaned the hole with a wood toothpick with heron around. But unfortunately one toothpick has fallen into the blue camera tube.
The silicon is hard and it is impossible to pull the black face ring and the wood toothpick is into.
WILL BE IT A PROBLEM WHEN I WILL REFIL THE GLYCOL\WATER BLEND?
Best Regards

All solved..
Finally I pull out the black face ring and the C-element: removed the wood toothpick.
Thanks
