To my knowledge you use it mostly for the anti-corrosion that it has. It helps to prevent the different metals in the system from corroding each other. Beyond that I would use some other biocide with it to make sure you don't get any growth within the system.

I couldn't tell you if it dropped temps any as I never really compared it mixed in my system to not having it in my system.

Also my last build I used a premix that seemed to work well. But my next build I am going back to distilled water. I plan on using IandH Dead-Water for growth and WaterWetter once again to protect and prevent corrosion. I have used WaterWetter for about 7yrs prior to using the premix.

Popular belief seems to claim a hydrophile additive can decrease core temps by a couple degrees (Not just from this post, I've been searching around)

I've also heard people get similar results with dishsoap, and from JetDry. Anybody know if there's any truth to the JetDry? I'm looking for a hydrophilic additive that's clear, or perhaps SLIGHTLY blue, as I want it to match the liquid color, which is clear/UV blue.
