Water wetter is good, it MIGHT lower temps 30F in a CAR, but not in your h20 system. It breaks up the surface tension of the water, makes heat transfer better and helps with corrosion. You won't see a significant temp difference going from straight water to a mixture of water and water wetter. Yes it does smell but you shouldn't get headaches, I don't.

i hope this stuff isnt like some brain cell killing stuff is it ?

And what does it smell like ?
It just smells like a chemical, it is not meant to be sniffed. I would not recommend using it in a bong situation, but in a close loop system, there is no smell.

Get Purple Ice - it does the same thing, but doesn't smell. I heard Water Wetter smells horrible. Don't expect better temps: it will just prevent corrosion (extremely helpful when you have a mix of aluminum and copper in the system). :)

ok but that doesnt answer my question if i put the top bakc on the 5 gall bucket and make 2 small holes for the in and out tubbing to go through then seal the holes shut would this be a closed watercooling system?

cuss idont think water can evaporate through a plastix top
