reverse osmosis water

 Share

Whats up everyone! I am going to be completing my first loop this week as soon as my parts arrive. Quick question. I was at the store and saw a big ass container of drinking water. I saw reverse osmosis on it so I knew that was good. However, after reading the fine print it said they have added some minerals for taste but in such a small value it doesn't effect nutritional values. I know you are supposed to use distilled, deionized, or reverse osmosis water for its purity and you don't want to use tap water because of the hard minerals it contains.

My question is, although they have added minerals for taste, I feel that it is in such a small amount just to make the water not taste "flat". Do you think that this water would be fine for the loop? I feel like there isn't going to that much added to it that it would cause a buildup problem or be corrosive unlike the amount found in tap water. Let me know what you guys think or if I should try and find a 100% mineral free water. Thanks guys/gals.

I mean it probably wouldn't do anything bad but you never know. There may be sugar or something and that would completely kill everything. If you can't find anything you can always use this:

Though that is just super expensive distilled water.

Use distilled water or oil that is specifically for watercooling PCs.

Could always buy some super expensive special coolant.

Someone told Luke and Linus at CES 2017 to "Unban the legend known as Jerakl" and that's about all I've got going for me.
