    Purple Ice vs Water Wetter

    Ive been doing some searching around the internet for comparisons, but didnt find any. My local autoparts stores dont sell water wetter, but they do sell purple ice.

    water wetter

    purple ice

    For those of you that have used both, or know anything about them, will either make a difference? Should i just go with whichever i can get, or go out of my way to get the better one?

    Iron hawk, are you just going to be looking at the cooling properties of each? I'm more interested in the corrosion prevention properties than anything. Any ideas for a long-term test to determine those? Also, is the Zerex Super Coolant a Dex-Cool anti-freeze? That's what I use.

    You should add Hyperlube Supercoolant to the lineup as well.

    my favorite so far is Dex-Cool antifreeze. No particular brand. I'm using prestone right now, but others work just as well. I've used standard anti-freeze (green stuff), water wetter, and Dex cool (orange anti-freeze) and I like Dex cool the best for it's corrosion prevention.

    They all seem to cool about the same. Differences are not measureable by the onboard diode, within 1C of each other.

    Sure Guys, Ill look into getting some Dex Cool and Regular Anti-Freeze. The Zerex Super Coolant is the coolant sold @ danger den and cooltechnica. I will be testing various properties of each coolant, including corrosion prevention, thermal, and physical properties.

    FRAGN'STIEN: I can't find a reference to Hyperlube Supercoolant anywhere. If you could enlighten me to a link I would greatly appreciate it. EDIT: -Never Mind- I found it. When I typed it into Google, Google changed it to Hypercube Super Coolant. Thanks for the suggestion

    To answer your question Ange062.

    It seems that the 2 are the same thing.
    Just different brands.

    Be sure to mix it in the proper ratio.

    Try a "Hi-Performance" auto shop. They should carry WW.
