There are three main coolant buckets, defined by their different additive philosophies.

The tiny “bubbles” of cavitation kill water pumps. While you will never actually see the tiny bubbles of cavitation in pumps, you can see the damage of water pump cavitation that looks like metal eaten by termites. That is because these are not really bubbles you see when it comes to the cavitation in pumps – they are voids.
