You know, the ol' porcelain bowl...... the white throne.... or the more commonly used term..... the toilet haha. And in regards to dumping the Hydrx, I don't see a problem doing so.

sorry didnt realize Komote wasnt a commonly used term anyways a bit of bad news when i started dumping the liquid i noticed a big ole crack on the Swiftech Reservoir and a bit of fungus i think inside the top luckily even though the crack was all the way thru it didnt leak out.... So i guess its time for a new reservoir and water setup. Cosmos S watercooling part 2.

Go ahead and flush it - you clean toilets with much harsher chemicals. Although if there's fungus, I have to seriously question how much of the Hydrx is remaining, since among other things, it's biocidal.
