You can preheat the water to reduce 'ramp up to current' time. [by several
Heat makes water more conductive without contaminating it.
The idea is to have it cool back down to room temp at about the same time
the current goes constant so that added heat doesn't replace conductivity
from silver at the end.
..which is one of the problems with using a thermal convection stirrer
initially developed to counter the formation of high concentration tracks
between the electrodes of a DC output generator.
Back then..more good than harm.

With alternating current output, [SWAP] that tracking never gets a chance
to become established, so disrupting it isn't needed.
Hot water at the end...more harm than good.
Hot water at the difference when it counts. [the water has cooled
off by the time it makes any difference in results

 Also. Pre-heating the water drives off dissolved gasses that may react
with silver.
