How do I flush my radiator for my Acura 3.2 TL 2002? Is is critical that I do not use tap water and if so then how do you flush it if you can't use a hose with tap water?

I's recommend just draining the radiator and coolant resevior, then add 50% appropriate coolant and 50% distilled water. No need to run the hose.
