I know there are lots of topics about this issue but more example more people get away from using tap water...

-Both cleaned with toothbrush for about 15 min each
-Cursed one is used for 4 months (Thermaltale/yeah its a bad block )
-clean one is used for 3 months (Heat killer rev3.0)

You decide which one is used with Tap water ...

couldn't agree more. And its not like distilled water is expensive or hard to find either, so really its a no-brainer. And some iodine or pt nuke goes along way too.

Distilled is 1.40$ here locally at almsot every grocery store. A friend of mine used tap water in his bong cooler and had crap like that built up in his HK and GPU water blocks.

Thanks for the pic's!.... Thats a real good example of mineral build up.

And there is no need to be insulting to anyone here, I wont tolerate it. It's a lot harder to get parts in some parts of the world then it is here, you use what you can. And besides that he didn't ask for anyone's opinion about what to buy, saying something like that about someones parts is rude.

I have been running tap water for about a year now in my bong cooler, and have not had any problems with mineral build up. I clean my loop frequently(every week or 2 weeks), including blocks and pumps. I expect if I let it run for 3 months without breaking it down and washing everything it would be pretty scary.

Yes, if you keep cleaning it you ll have less disortation but there will be in long term usage imo ...
