People flush their parts with tap water though so even deionized isn't bad for that use. I bought the Mayhems X1 coolant because I was sure it would be hard to find true distilled water in here. Good to know drug stores have it.
Since you are using red tube, i would suggest to forget the usage of any dye (and its consequences).
Well regarding deionized... no, its not distilled nowhere in the world, but sometimes the sellers confuse these terms. As mentioned above, WFI (water for injection) red label would do the job as well, if you cannot order DI (distilled) from Bakakos (athens).
Mayhems X1 Clear has done a perfect job to my loop, preventing algae, galvanic corrosion and having almost the same heat tansfer performance as water has, which is superior to any other "normal" liquid.
On the other hand, I had huge galvanic corrosion issues when i used Ultra Pure Water by Mayhems (which is also an excellent product) with silver kill coil and no antigalvanic corrosion... Since then, PreMix with NO Silver killcoil is the solution for me!
To get an idea ...
