Be careful about that, because not all liquids are "approved" for use with your liquid cooling system.  For instance, I own the Koolance EXOS.  They have a recommendation and they stick to it.  Use any other products and you will void the warranty.  No biggie.

Try an ammonia-based cleaning product, it will also remove crud from your blocks. I haven't done it, but if you can't open up your blocks most sites recommend ammonia.

its a home built system with dd blocks and an aluminum rad and distro blocks. my biggest concern is the plastic impeller on the pump and the vinyl tubing.

Hay ppls
 Just reading the posts. Sounds like your water
 has started to build up a slim. (That slime is a bactira build up)This happens in all kinds of fish tanks, it a normal thing water does.
 Use a White vinger/water 50-50, mix that should cut through the slime.
The (white)vinger WON'T harm your pump,run for a few min. then dump it out ((repeat as needed) Make sure you FLUSH  the lines after you clean them
(I use this mixture  to clean/mantain my reef tank equipment Pumps exc..)
That slime is a bactira build up.
 Should try to use a reverse osmois- U/V- treated watersupply.
Penguine water machines offer such a water for about 30 cents a gal. Just look for,water despenceing machines in front of the food stores.
Just make sure it uses U/V stai-ra-la-zation(if it dont say it , then it don't use it )
I keep a 3 chamber R/o unit under my sink
 I like to drink GooD water. Not S**Tty city water. (Plus I need it to do top offs, on my reef tank any way)
 If you really need to clean the line , just get a baby bottle brush (a small one) even a line brush. Tie a string to the top and to the  bottom then you can run it through the lines an ammoinuia I dont know about that
 PVC and ammonia mite be ok I dont really know 8)
