Never ever put water in the system for any reason.
If you are forced to...... use distilled water. I always keep a gallon of premixed OEM coolant in all my cars whether its the Toyota or the AMG. Water crystallizes and forms calcium deposits which can gum up your coolant passages causing your car to run hotter/overheat. To be safe always flush your coolant every year.
