are they overall pretty safe though?

or if I dont like risk? should I avoid them?



they do take a good bit of time to set up and get going initially, and there is a good deal of maintenance compared to air, always need to check things once a month or so for potential leaks, use distilled water, not tap water, distilled water is supposed to be non-conductive in pure form, don't use antifreeze, it tends to clog things up, and wont make it run any cooler, just add 10% Redline Water Wetter and a few drops of some sort of aquarium anti-growth stuff to keep the slimy stuff out, oh, and add these things after it is pretty much full of water, i messed up the first time and put the water wetter in first and then the water and it took hours to bleed the foam and bubbles.....

I just setup my water this weekend, and it was pretty gay to setup (mainly because i placed things in bad spots and I had bad tubing). I'm using 85% distilled, 15% antifreeze + about 4 ounces of alcohol for algae. The water flows through the tubes effortlessly enough that I can constantly hear the water swishing around in my 5.5in bay res. It is pretty safe when you get it running. the only thing that I dont like is draining, but it can be done without spilling or leaking. One thing i do recommend is to take the time to use hose clamps, it made me so much more confident of my wc. I've ran it non-stop since saturday night, andi've had no glitches.
