Recommended Posts

Trying to remember, but I can’t, distilled water on it’s own is ok to run in a non mixed metal loop right?

Pretty sure, distilled water is water without any impurities in it, so no metals in the water.

Was it leaking? Because like if not, then just no... you should literally never have to refill. It being a closed system and all.

If it was leaking, then how the hell did that shit not kill your computer?

It is well known that the water can permeate the tubes over 5+ years of heavy use

Distilled is technically fine to use, however, a few drops of a biocide will extend the usable life of your coolant.

It is generally recommend to use biocide or a silver coil to prevent stuff growing in your loop (althought it is not recommend to use silver coil in a system with nickel)
