With tap water, from what I understand it has bits of metal in it for lack of better word. And it will cause grime build up like what's in your shower. Now this is not a question for practical application, I know I should buy distilled water. If you wanted to filter out all that extra nastie stuff. What might be a method of doing that? Say you used some kind of homemade rock filter thing like below?
I could run a low flow setup while I'm at work or make something run all the time on kind on a second loop, with high gpm to filter out the grime, I have 2 pumps. With my other 35 gallon+ totes, I could run a filter loop for my next batch of water, then pump it into the 50 gallon tote the next time I clean the dirt out of my water block.
1. grime? (maybe a simple pool filter or aquarium filter)
2. chemicals? that could be bad for a loop
3. corrosive metals? that could be bad for a brass\steel\copper loop
I looked into buying my own water distiller but they seem very slow and or expensive?
Keep in mind, the only thing I really have exposed is a 20$ block, 11$ in tubing. Well unless my barbs, seals, metal clamps and extra layer of protection via silicone layer sealant fails me. I'm going to make a simple water diversion to line the water block as well in case the hoses go wild. Basically plastic from my old shipping bubble wrap fastening to my block leading to the carpet.
