Understandable smile.gif I myself am going with pure copper blocks, no nickel plating whatsoever and for coolant I will use distilled water with the concentrate, I think that will suffice smile.gif 7€ on top of those 600€ is negligible biggrin.gif

No, they really don't. There is a reason multiple companies don't recommend it and all of them recommend using anti corrosive additives.

Copper Sulphate

Multiple brands, All, No corrosion inhibitor.

Its fine if people have to learn for themselves the hard way but encouraging others to do the same all based on endlessly repeated internet 'wisdom' is just irresponsible.

So its like I said, better off with distilled water + anti-growth and anti-corrosion additives, rather than a silver kill coil smile.gif
