The cooler was more than 5 years old. Do you expect them to last forever?

This is due to corrosion. The corrosion inhibitors that are in the liquid don't prevent corrosion, they just inhibit it - that is, slow it down. Hence ... corrosion inhibitor rather than corrosion preventer. The corrosion creates deposits. Not a defect. It's due to mixed metals that are used in AIOs - (just about) all of them. With your distilled water, it'll happen too ... and faster as you have nothing to inhibit the corrosion.
