Distilled water with some biocide of some sort (pt nuke or silver) to kill anything nasty that might decide to take up residence in your loop is generally the best.

Of course there are the others (feser-one, pc ice) and such

Don't use water wetter. It won't provide any benefits what so ever and it'll coat the inside of your loop with silicates. At normal cooling temperatures there's nothing better than plain old distilled water + pt nuke or a silver kill coil. Now if you get down to sub-zero temperatures, then you might want to try some Dynalene.

I used distilled water, I then break apart a highlighter and mix it in the water. Its safe washable and Uv reactive!

The thing is nothing is non-conductive forever, even the Feser fluids become more conductive the longer they remain in the loop. Particles will always find a way into the fluids making them conductive.

Distilled water + PT Nuke would be a cheap simple solution, and for the price of a bottle of Feser one you can make alot more fluid and for alot less $$. If you're interested in cool UV reactive liquid, feser one looks very nice however it fades over time and you will need to add their special UV additive to restore it.
