Feser Aqua Non Conductive Ultra Pure Water??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The other day I came across this "distilled" water, if it is distilled...(cuz it says that passes thourgh the reverse osmosis system and the gets de-ionized, it is "distilled"?) I noticed its pH... 2-3? I asked my chemistry teacher, as I'm a completely dumb at chemistry, and he told me that theoretically,with this pH, this fluid is very reactive, and hence conductive

What do you guys think?

Its junk. If its not conductive now then it will be shortly once inside a loop.

No, it's not distilled, it's RO and DI. It's probably got zero TDS (Total dissolved solids), leaving it entirely non-conductive. The pH shouldn't be that low... It should be closer to 7. RO/DI usually is very close to 7 because there is no chemical reaction when making it, only physical separation. Distillation can change pH levels slightly from removing the O2 in the water, making it slightly more acidic, though again not far from a ph of 7.

I have no idea why their pure liquid is around a ph of 2-3. If that's the case, then it isn't pure and they add something to it, or pump it full of CO2 to drop the pH. I don't know why they'd saturate it with CO2 though (and it likely would equalize if exposed to air pretty quickly), since CO2 will encourage algal growth. I guess high CO2 concentration will keep down aerobic bacterial growth?

I think their pH is wrong, or it isn't just pure water.

I'm not sure about reactivitiy, but you shouldn't have to worry about much microbe growth at 2-3pH. Lemon Juice and Vinegar have about the same pH as that water.

Also a good point. Over time it will adsorb chemicals from whatever its touching (water is the universal solvent), and while we consider copper, nickle, and bronze to be "compatible" metals to use in a loop, eventually they do have some small corrosion in our loops, just not nearly as much or as quickly as aluminum and copper, so it's not as apparent and is much more manageable.

I'm leaning to leave it behind then...

What I'm worrying about is its reactivity with the metals inside the loop and its conductivity and not its antimicrobial abilities

Just get distilled water. You shouldn't need their fancy cooling garbage anyway, its expensive and probably worse than distilled.

Why would you have even looked at that when everyone always recommends just going distilled?

I just saw it accidentally and it caught my eye ^^
Anyway, I'm out of these junk coolants forever.
