If this is what you've got then u need to put all of it in - and don't mix with water.

As for UV Dye, it's best to play by ear. Just keep adding it a drop at a time until you get a good effect.

I have [B]this[B]

I asked the boys at Specialtech what I needed and they said the Alphacool Tec-protect Clear, uv dye of my choice, and I have 2L of de-ionised water! Surely they didn't sell me stuff I don't need??? Please get back to me asap as I want to get the water changed and my components back into my pc tonight as there are no leaks in my loop! Woo-hoo!

"This addition does not have to be mixed with distilled water, but is qualified for a complete set and thus ready-to-use" i diluted mine anyway, no way could i afford to fill my loop with that stuff over and over
