post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Am setting my EK kit and am worried because the only distilled water i found is actually battery water. Can i use battery water which stores calls "distilled water" in my loop ?



thanks in advance!

Well, if it's distilled then I don't see why not...

Could you seriously not find any other distilled water? THey only have one type at your local super market?

there is no distilled water in supermarkets here only drinking water, even petrol stations they didn't know "Distilled water" except one car parts shop knew and i bought it but it says on the bottle "Battery water" and it tastes like acid a bit

OH MY GOD.

To ALL people who say "battery Water" (actually Deironised) and "Distilled Water" are the same please go away and do some reading!

They are DIFFRENT!

Distilled has has most if not all impuraties removed via boiling and condenceing many times.

and deironised is a simple process of removeing the irons and some other crap but leavs it will some minrels you dont want in your loop.

Sorry but i cant spell.

this is true but deionised water is just as good for example my loop has been running for 13 months with deionised water and a silver coil with zero gowth so although they are not the same they are just as good as each other

Well it shouldn't taste like acid lol, often in batteries it's deionised water that's used, which isn't as pure as distilled and can contain microbes.

If it says distilled though, it probably is.

This is true, but I think what people meant is that they both work just as well for water cooling and that there is no discernible difference between them for this purpose.
