Well, So far things are CLEAN as a whistle.

Last night I shut everything down and emptied the system. Inspected everything, including dismantling the pump. Everything was fine.

so for a 5 day test things are pretty good. I have had the system re primed and running and no problems. Long term is still up for debate but my results are looking promising.
So far the $1.59 spent for these results is plenty worth it considering the alternative.

I'd personally like to know the differences in temps using this compared to say something like Feser and yes the long term effects on the hardware.

I'd love to be able to give you those numbers.

I'm just not ready for it. From my personal experiances, home remedies compared to the bought ones have near the same results.
