I imagine it depends on the properties of the UV dye. Most is labeled as non-corrosive, etc. I've had UV reactive dye in a cooling loop on my current pc for 6 years. Never had a single issue with it, still running good.

Hi tju76,
 
I beleive DS still uses Feser One Cooling Fluid (clear) which is UV reactive.  So you shouldn't need to add any thing to your cooling loop.

We use Feser One clear, which can be UV reactive with cold cathode UV lights (however it won't be super bright like UV green fluid).

The Feser One Clear used by DS is UV reactive.  You need a UV light source to make it glow.  If you are looking for a colored fluid that is also UV reactive Feser makes a number of different colored fluids that are also UV reactive.  Here is a link to their site: http://www.tfc-us.com/shop/
You will still need a UV light source to lake them glow.
 
I hope this helps.

Since the liquid is not just distilled water how often should I take everything out of the loop to clean it like the rads and blocks

tju76 on the Feser One cooling fluid bottle it says in BOLD HIGH LIGHTED letters, Do Not Mix with other liquids. Take it for what its worth from the manfacturer. There address is www.Feser-One.com.

To my knowledge, not very often. The Feser is non-corrosive so you wouldn't benefit much from it. I've had 3 liquid cooled pc's in the the past and haven't cleaned the liquid cooling loops but about once every 3ish years if using non-corrosive liquid. I'd say just watch your temps and consider cleaning them if they start getting higher than normal.

Not sure how to best instruct you as to cleaning them, it's not really something I've done- the liquid cooling loops I've had experience with in the past are very low maintenance, I don't suspect these are really any different.
