No such thing as non-conductive since once the liquid will eventually acumulate some type of particles through the loop or once it leaks, it could come into contact with external particles making it conductive.

The best way to remedy fears of leaks is to run a 24 hr leak test with only the pump(s) being powered and nothing else. Have towels and the likes around areas where a leak could start if there ever is one. Places like fittings/threaded ports are usually the places of focus.

Well they pretty much are inside the bottle before it's introduce to the 'conductive' outside world. It's great marketing.

Maybe one day they'll produce waterproof MBs.

All current coolants available are water based.
Water is conductive, period.

As said above, make sure to leak test before putting power to the components.
