What's the minimum amount I need of either antifreeze or waterwetter to get protection against algae and corrosion?
I'm currently putting together a H20 sys.

I am going to use like 2oz of WW to 1 gal of water. Maybe adding about 1/2 to 1 oz of antifreeze to the mix.

The correct formula is here in the fourms, somewhere.
I read it B4. Anti-freeze is just that. Keeps your system from freezing @ sub zero temps/raises the boiling point of water too.
But for a PC. It does not absorb heat like WW does.

Do some reading at the top of the cooling fourm.
There is a "Sticky" up there with great info.

Good Luck.
