And there's also a problem called galvanic corrosion--where one metal corrodes in place of another--the waterblock could corrode in order to save some hunk of metal in the sewer.
Closed loop cooling systems use additives to fight this and other forms of deterioration. Tap water doesn't have them.

Let's do a little calculation for fun. A typical coolant flow rate is 2 gallons per minute. That works out to 120 gallons an hour, 2880 a day.
That would fill a nice sized in-ground swimming pool in five days.
