I'm sure its already been said, but for long term use i'd highly recommend Mayhem's biocide+ and inhibitor+ drops(both bottles), then follow the directions. It's the cheapest and cleanest solution for long term use. If you don't take that advice, than at least use Mayhem's X1 clear/UV line. (the other top shelf guys just rebottle his stuff these days)
if you really wanna take it to the next level for longevity & system health, so your blocks come out YEARS later looking brand new - get his blitz kit (both parts 1 & 2, like the drops mentioned above) & follow the directions, with a liberal rinse cycle.
Buy distilled by the 6 gallon pack, they'll be ~$5-$10 a pack, depending on your location.
don't over analyse things, or mince over the 1-2%s.
Also if you don't care about looks, you can save an ishton of money buy going barbs & worm clamps (the most secure solution, specially for soft tubing & long term use), thus giving you more money for a better pump, or PC components. Only you and some other bruhs online are gonna see it, n your girl really isn't gonna care if you have barbs, compressions, LEDs that bump to the beat, etc... (LEDs are distracting overpriced fad to bring in new customers!!!)
last bit of advice, Aquaero 6 is the best investment ever, n don't even get the one with the screen, just get the board, so you can stash it wherever best fits a central location for wiring.
