why is my UV dye isn't reflecting UV?

I have 2 4inch UV tubes in the case . I pour plenty of blue UV coolant & UV bomb into the reservoir.

the liquid is barely emitting blue color. :mad::mad:

What is wrong?

Forget about dies, they only bring misery and disappointment.

What tubing are you using. What dye for that matter? Some work better then others...

It would be so awesome if you get,

"Yo XS, I have Tygon R3400 and it's crap."

What is wrong?

1. Lack of information
2. Bombing your coolant with even more dye because it doesn't glow.

Even more funny if it's like that : " I have Tygon R-3400. When I put a UV dye, why doesn't it glow even with 4 UV CCFL in the case ?"

UV reactive fluid works with a UV light source as has been mentioned

Lol ease up guys :rofl:.

I actually had the same problem. Filled my loop with distilled H20 and F1 UV blue dye, and guess what, no glow!

So i added more dye that didn't help either. :rolleyes: I'm actually not too fussed really, bling is overrated...:p:

Edit: And YES, i had an ACRyan UV cathode right next to the tubing...
