Do I inject ONLY Distilled water?

Do I need to use only distilled water in my cooling mist system, or can I just use filtered water?

Also, what water soluble oil are ya'll mixing in the water? And where are you getting it?

Thanks in advance,
Clayton.

You can use filtered water. I use regular spring water from the grocery store.

I ran distilled water and water soluble machine oil.

Also...look into the optional shunt valve...
