Q: De-ironized water or tap.

You should not use tap water since it has added chlorine, calcium, and other additives that de-ionized water will not. You can purchase coolant already pre-mixed 50/50 or mix it yourself with de-ionized water and coolant mixed 50/50. You can also use distilled water if you cannot get or find de-ionized water.
