I use distilled water or drinking water. I get it from walmart for like 60 cents a gallon, or i just use the RO system in my house. Problem with the RO is i only can get about a gallon before its empty and need to refill. Just don't be like my dad and use frickin pond water.

In all honesty, you should use distilled water. The reason for this is that there are almost no impurites in it. A lot of the crap that comes out of your radiator is the sediment in tap water. Have you ever boiled a pot of water totally dry? All the crap that is left over in the bottom of the pan is what's going to end up coating your heater core and radiator. It's only a buck or so a gallon. I'd just buy it.
