UV water dye

I don't watercool, but I was wondering about UV dyes' effects on the water... I've always used the inside of highlighters to add UV dye to water (I do this for wine bottles). In fact I just posted about it a little bit ago. I don't see how a little dye could corrupt the properties of the water signifiacntly, but I was really tossing the idea out there to see what others thought.

Have other UV dyes seriously impacted your H20 cooling performance? What dyes and how much worse was the performance with dye?

According to Chip (I think that was his name) at overclock-watercool, he was having a hard time finding certain colors of dye-lite, so he went to the source and found the stuff that caseetc is selling. Don't know if it's true or not. But I know that you only need a few drops (1/30 oz per gallon), so I highly doubt it would have any sort of significant effect on cooling.
