    Even if it didn't clog, the particles would cause excessive wear on the pump and other parts.

    Not something that I would try.

    Choosing between two evils, I might pick the one I've never tried before.

    Rheoscopic fluid is what that stuff is called


    This stuff is non-toxic, does not react with anything will not stain, comes in many colors, Can be pumped, or will flow with heat (we all have lots of that available!) and is reasonably cheap!

    A 100 Rheoscopic Fluid, 16 oz . . . . . . . . $6.95
    A 105 Rheoscopic Fluid, 32 oz . . . . . . . . $11.95
    A 110 Rheoscopic Fluid, gallon . . . . . . . $36.95

    I would not use it in a WC system directly, apparently it will grow some things. Also, since it is made with microscopic Mica, I really doubt it will cool components very well, and might clog things if your block is a little scummy inside.

    Edit: Another thing: If your pump operates at a high volume, I really doubt if you would see anything swirling or whatever.

    I find that most people are like Slinkies.. They are not really good for anything, but can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs. :P
