    In short..U should get the radiator flushed and remove all the plain water and use caltex coolant diluted in 50 50 with distilled water or Ac drip water..it will be cheaper than if u buy honda coolant..and caltex coolant is to be changed ideally after 150000 kms..

    You won't have to regularly add coolant to the bottle, unless there is a leak somewhere. Leaks often occur when you are using tap water for a long time; the pipes start corroding and leaks are created.

    I prefer to use Guard radiator coolant with Red color. Two bottles are enough for civic radiator and make up the rest with distilled water or Nestle pure life water. However, Pyro is another very nice option. Last time I used it and it is doing very well. Guard coolant is more concentrated as compared to Pyro. Pyro radiator flush is also a very nice product. Only use it if you feel that your car is overheating due to clogging of radiator tubes otherwise do not use it. In case you are skeptical that your cooling system is never being flushed by the previous car owner then use it for your complete satisfaction and then add coolant.

    Distilled water and nestle water or any mineral water are the two opposite extremes of water. Mineral water is not recommended as a coolant.

    I recommended Nestle pure life water just in case if your won't find distilled water or your are in a hurry. At least all mineral waters are filtered properly so no dirt is present in it. However, I agree that the distilled water is being produced with a different process called as Water De-mineralization or De-ionization process in which all the bicarbonates of calcium and magnesium and other detrimental impurities like ferrous, sulfates, nitrates and silica are thoroughly removed which prevent scaling and rusting in the radiator tubes and cooling system. I myself a chemical engineer and I have been working on these plants for many years. So it is always better to use a reputed company distilled water. A/C drip or condensed water is not considered to a safe and fully clean water as it also gathers environmental impurities due to exposure from atmosphere and surroundings.
