It's worth a shot though, what's the worst that can happen?
LOL I wish the 2 deg temp! but its not!
The worst wrong is to waste 70Ltrs of water which I still have a problem with.. :s

Is there any chemical to use? so I could use tap water?

Only use tap water if you want nasty stuff clogging your blocks. You need to use distilled if you want to run for any length of time with this setup.

Grocery store or hardware store are good bets.

Get RO+DI from an aquarium shop. That's where you'll find large volumes of pure water for reasonable prices. Heck, sometimes if it's enough water they'll even deliver it.

I'd like OP to do this just to see how it works out.

Some interesting perks to a large tank is that you could put a drain on it, and when you use it you could either dump distilled ice cubes in or float some of the frozen plastic ice cubes or cold packs in there, then take them out and re-freeze them, or cycle a bunch in-out of there.

You'd be far better off using a passive radiator of the same size as your 70 liter water tank... that heat has to get into the air somehow, and the more surface area the better
