Are you filtering also or just heating and settling?
Of couse in a perfect world we want no water. However, with the vegistroke, the Donaldson filter will catch small suspended water droplets so i don't worry about it.
I have hot pan tested oil that had maybe 10 tinybubles in an area the size of a quarter and that was acceptable to me with the donaldson filter.
Don't forget you will never be able to get away from the water issue...at least i haven't found a way. Everytime you drive, your vented tank is pulling in air through the vent and that air contains moisture which will condensate on the surface of the tank. A heated tank combined with cool outside temps will accelerate this. Of course this water will form in large droplets and fall to the bottom of the tank as "free water" rather than suspended water.
Thats why i have a tank drain so i can park it where the water will migrate to the drain and then let it set overnight and come out and drain off a quart of so to pull that water out. I have never seen more than maybe a nickle sized droplet. The donaldson filter will catch this also if if gets picked up but no reason to prematurely clog a filter.
