Mixing PC ice and distilled water

749 12
Hey all,
I was wondering if you can mix the PC ICE non-conductive fluid with distilled water, because I am not sure if a quart of the PC ICE will be enough to fill my new system and the reservoir. So I was think of adding the distilled water to make up the difference. Will it still remain non-conductive? and will there be any ill effects to using it. Thanks

Well I was just wondering, I mean how much can it lessen the non-conductive abilities of it? Is a quart gonna be enough?

I converted a couple things, and if I use all 15ft of tubing that will be about .6 of a quart. or 19.39 FL OZ. Which leaves about 15 or so OZ. to fill the radiator and blocks and pump and res. How much do you think they could take?
