distilled water if you cann't get it at a local shop get de-ionized
They have some red primochill stuff here http://www.aquatuning.ch/index.php/cat/c1097_Red.html . Which one should I get?

Edit: in the end I would prefer red coolant, hopefully uv reactive

When I mentioned primochill I was talking about tubing

If you are going pre-mix then I'd go for

Do I need anti bacterial/anti corrosion stuff for that? Preferably also from aquatuning.ch

Some watercooling parts come with premolded tube barbs (like the Laing D4 pump), most come threaded, G1/4, so you will need to buy fittings to put everything together.
I always use 1/2 inch id tubing (which I think is becoming the most common size). Other use 3/8". Regardless, all fittings and tubing must be for the same internal diameter.

You will have to decide if you want to use compression fittings or barbs and how you hold the tubing onto the barb. I use barbs and black zip ties and put the catch in the back so all you see is a band clamping the tube down. Many people like automotive hose clamps and they also sell nylon reuseable clamps. Scour the fittings, tubings, etc on aquatuning.ch, etc. It is easy to have costs get out of control quickly when watercooling. I'd try to keep your first one as simple as possible. You can go nuts on the bling later.

You should really use an anti-bacterial/anti-corrosion - you are spending a lot of cash, don't ruin it by saving trying to save a few bucks.

Have you looked at the Hints section at the bottom of aquatuning.ch?

Not leak prone at all.The hose you hang the pump from is the feed hose so it just has the pressure from gravity,not the pressure developed from pump activity.If you are concerned with "bad things" happening with your distilled water just change it frequently (every 3 months would be considered very frequent).I do not have any idea about UV products but I have some great mounting standoffs you may want to take a look at.Let me know or look through the second or third page of the watercooling section,I have some pictures running.I do not make them available for personal profit,just what it costs me.

For the two current builds I have going on I am using copper pipe for transport of the coolant.I like the look,there is some heat disappation effect from the pipe but the bender and cutter set me back 150.00 and the fittings are 10.00 each and with this type of fitting once you tighten it once the compression ring is fixed to the pipe so if your dimension is wrong you just wasted 10.00. Do not worry about this copper pipe stuff and just take on what you are comfortable with.Remember you are shooting for that 10C lower temp over what high quality air would get you but I like seeing my 955 run in the high 40'sC and not the high 50'sC.It is a blast to see a first gen i7(920-930) run at 100% 24/7 (with hyperthreading on) and not go over 55C on a 85F day,that makes it worth it.
