hopefully this'll help you with your journey -
ive been running my first loop for I think 1 year now, I put distilled water in it, copper loop and it's still super clean. doesnt really get too hot and runs on pump level 3 of 5 (using a XSPC Photon 240 V2 D5 )
Cleanest way to go and least amount of maintenance lol.
i used the drinking water you can buy at the store , i think a liter was 1$ and used about 3 liters total?
what i'd do, just make sure everything is tight and double / triple check.
I thought everything was tight besides the internal tube in the Photon which caused a super small drip leak and I had to end up taking the whole thing apart just to fix it lol.
run it for a few hours and just let it sit and watch for any impurities going into the reservoir before you put it back in your desk, i had mine on the kitchen table by the sink.
