AntiFreeze leaks.

Techman Member Posts: 2,144
What can be used to clean up antifreeze& the "residue" from a leaking tridicator that collected on top of the boiler? Then how about that bluish/greenish stuff on the brass fittings on some  manifolds? Thanks!

    and a small wire brush or old fitting brush.

    But it may come back! It's a tough fluid to keep inside.

    chances are

    the paint will wash off with the residue. Warm soapy water, and don't rub too hard. Check the PH also
