"I second what KittenChops said. I have (2) 52oz, one of them had poor flow, really slow, and only 1 massive blob would rise and fall at a time the other was a little cloudy. The cloudy one's flow was good just not perfect with regards to fluid…"

UV Water Dye by GloEffex

Anyone else experimented with this or similar products? https://www.gloeffex.com/collections/uv-water-dyesI'm considering giving it a try but, unsure to how it may effect the goo, or offset the water density.

Goo-Kit Refurbishing & Streaking
