Homeopathy (also spelled homoeopathy or homœopathy) is a form of alternative medicine

I believe the word you're looking for is Homogeneous solution

Back when I worked in a Lab Type 3 Water + Copper/Aluminum substrate added (After all Nature hates a vaccum) and that would suffice. Biggest thing in cooling loops that you still get with store purchased distilled water is the Salt Mineral Content. Salt + Water + Metal = Bad combination.

De-Mineralized water is best.

So Iodine takes care of the corrosion part and the silver takes care of the algae/dirty water part??

They both do the same thing. Ethylene Glycol, or Antifreeze takes care of corrosion

LOL! I know. I'm french, so I'm sorry about the spelling errors... I'm also a biochemist with a minor in chemistry, and also a pharmacist. :) So I know a little bit about ''homeopathy''.

In french, we say ''homeomagie'' instead of ''homeopathie''. It's a joke. But it didn't went well while trying to write this in english instead...Lost in translation.

A question for all you guys using glycol and glycol based fluids (ethylene and propylene, which of course will include anyone using antifreeze and apparently most of the store bought pre-mixtures):

Do you guys have any acrylic in your loops?

Right, I just see alot of people saying they use Glycol based additives and alcohols are supposed to kill acrylic something fierce. I was surprised seeing all the Glycol users, and was wondering if either using alcohol additives was alright or if everyone had loops with out reservoirs (T lines or some odd material res).
