    distilled water :) and that alone ideally...

    but otherwise it depends what metals are in the loop (pump, blocks, res, rad etc)

    if mixing metals, add zerex to the mix (in the correct quantity)

    Yep just distilled water its pretty cheap. personally i would put a little additive in anyway and i second zerex, doesnt smell as bad as water wetter :)

    additives wise you will have to order of the internet not many places that stock that sorta thing. you should be ok with just plain distilled water until you have oppurtunity to order some additive, or i could post u a vile of some if i can find one

    Chemist or local garage for distilled water, then get some Water Wetter ordered online.

    To kind of hi-jack the thread (altough its on the same lines) where do you guys get your UV reactive dye from and does it have a negative effect on the pump/blocks/pipes, etc.

    i get mine online but cant name a competitor here, but i dont use it anymore it left a horrible stain on my tubing and impurities on my blocks. it was only in my system for 3months and it got that bad i had to drain it all and clean the whole loop blocks apart and all. If you want reactive i recommend a reactive water like swiftech do (in green i think) it wont go funny like distilled with UV additive
