In case you can't find one, as was the problem where I am from.. I went to a Audiophile hifi store and bought some silver wiring, audio nuts use (995-997?) silver wiring for their speakers, it was around $6 USD for 1 feet and I just used a pencil, wrapped it around in a coil and threw it in my reservoir, ran it for over a month without a problem..

I did end up buying it from a online vendor as I was purchasing some other needed equipment I also could not find where I am currently residing..

bend a paperclips ends into a green, and the other into any black. Then plug it in and flip your power switch on the PSU.

If your in Aus you can buy a silver strip and turn it into a coil from here.

They also sell other Watercooling parts aswell, I buy from these guys and PC-Case Gear.
