Loop nearly froze can I use Antifreeze?


Recommended Posts

I'm sure this topic has probably been exhausted but please bare with me. I use a modified air conditioner to cool my loop which never normally gets close to sub zero temps, However due to this recent nice and cold UK wintery weather yesterday the coolant in my res turned to slush! big panic my side as you may imagine!

So my question is, is it ok to use Antifreeze in my loop? Its not something I wanna gamble with if it has the potential to eat away the seals over time in my water block etc. If anyone has any advice or experience with this it will be greatly appreciated. 👍

 

I'm using Ek supremacy block (acetal)  

D5 Pump 

Soft tubing 

EK Res

That’s a good shout is this something you have run? Also what is the main benefit of using screen wash over antifreeze, I assume it’s less aggressive? Thanks! 
 

I have listed all my subs with air conditioner as “chilled” 👍
