I ran pre-mixed Feser UV Red for over 2 years in my last build. Other than some light staining on the clear tubing and reservoir, I had no issues. The blocks are fine, they don't gum up at all. I will advise to stay away from Primochill dyes, I've had an issue with them separating out and blocking flow through blocks, but I haven't tried any other add-in dyes since that experience 3 years ago.
