When I had a coolant tank, for a different purpose, I put automatic "anti freeze in the water. It is make just for this purpose and is non-corrosive with materials used in car engines.
Also, if the water recirculates it will eventually warm up. I put a 12 volt fan on the tank lid and made it into an evaporative cooler. Then you top off the tank with new water now and then. If the water is taking even 25 watts of heat from the system it will heat up quite a lot unless you rig some kind of cooling.
