Post your parts.I typically just use distilled + kill coil + nuke but I want to make sure you didn't mix metals.

Planning to go distilled water, but Idk what to get kill coil or this one https://www.dazmode.com/store/product/dazmode_protector/
I can't find any seller in Canada that I can buy the additives locally, So yeah coz shipping for the product is 8$ and the produt itself is 8 bucks

Ive been watercooling for only about 5-6 years now, but ive always used some cheapo distilled water from the local store im at when i need to re-fill my loop, and ive had the same silver coil since my first loop like 6 years ago and thats all ive ever used, never had any issues, and ive ran EK nickel plated blocks on every GPU ive had, and copper cpu blocks.

If you want to use an additive grab some PT Nuke and use the recommended amount (its like a few drops.so your bottle will last for several years)

So its actually worth going for the kill coil coz it will be with me forever? :Sounds good, problem now is looking for a kill coil in Canada that I don't need to pay for shipping twice the price of the item I'm buying.

anything thats pure silver will work, i think they make silver fittings and plugs now too which work just as well.

So anything that is pure silver that I can put inside the resevoir will work fine?

EDIT: Meaning I can just go to a local jewelry seller and get a pure silver earring or some sort?

Woudn't recommend an earing -- you definitely don't want anything getting sucked into your pump, but yeah, anything that's 99.99% silver (and not coated) should do the job.

What do you mean not coated? Can you give some examples I have tons of pure silver stuff at my house. I melted so many old watches before that I have blocks of them for no reason.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow when I dig them in my cabinet.

not coated meaning a cheaper metal that is coated with silver to give the all the appearances of silver at a fraction of the cost. it needs to be pure silver
