www.caseetc.com charges $15 for a 1 oz. bottle which i think is a ripoff(pretty sure contractors get can get 8oz. for $15).

Has anyone been able to find a less expensive reseller or a non-crappy alternative?

In case u have no idea what i am talking about, there is such thing as UV Dye used in coolant leak detection. Put the dye in the coolant and u can use a a UV lamp(blacklight) to find the now glowing leaks. Watercooling modders put it in their cooling systems because it makes all ur hoses and stuff glow under a blacklight.

I don't use the stuff, but you should be able to purchase some from an automotive supply outlet.

It is common practice in the automobile industry to check for coolant leaks with a 'Blacklight'.

A good auto parts house will have what you need..just call ahead and ask if they have 'coolant dye'. It should run you about 5 USD.

The auto places i have visited and called did not carry any and one plumbing place i talked to said if i could find it in town, I would have to have a contractor's license to buy it.
