soft water for coolant

Recommended Posts

In the 06' manual it says,

"Hard water or salt water is harmful to the engine parts. You may use distilled water, if you can’t get soft water."

So its just softened tap water right? From reading through the posts it looks like most people use distilled water but according to the manual soft water is preferred.

"Soft" water contains an unexpectedly large amount of salt, and all kinds of other dissolved minerals. Don't use it. Distilled water contains nothing, is cheap and available everywhere. Use that.

We could start a warning labels thread. My favorite was the valve spring compressor (U.S. made) that was stamped, "Do not use on a running engine."

No harm in giving a plug to engine ice. It is a relatively inexpensive product and no water needed. Its what i use also
