Decrease Your Chances of System Failure by Using Windshield Wiper Fluid

Some people decide to use water in their windshield fluid system and this is not the best option. Windshield wiper fluid, unlike water, can get colder than freezing without icing up.

When water turns to ice it expands. Most windshield wiper fluid reservoirs are made from plastic. This plastic will split if it is filled with frozen water. That is why it is always important to use the recommended fluid for your windshield wiper fluid system since it will be less likely to freeze up and damage that system.

Many people are finding out just how important windshield wiper fluid is. In the past, many of these people have felt that they could just save a few dollars by filling their windshield wiper fluid system with plain tap water. There are many people who are still using water in their windshield wiper fluid system. This is not a safe practice to do because using water instead of the recommended fluid will increase the chances for system failure.
