"## at least if you had a leak..with distilled water, you wont get a mess like with oil.
If it was me, Id use a combo of distilled water + water wetter. The water wetter, added to the distilled water, stops bubbles forming. Water wetter is sold at any automotive parts stores. I use it in both my engine radiator.....and also in my roots type supercharger on my mustang V8... ( intercooler-heat exchanger- pump-degas loop). "


I still run an old vapor-cooled Alpha 70V and purge/fill it with distilled water on an annual basis. Brand-name distilled water shows very low leakage, even at 4KV. How does adding Water Wetter affect HV leakage? Or, are you suggesting its use with water-cooling through an insulated jacket?
