Echo TR Water Bleeds in 2020?

Friend of mine is having such a hard time with his brakes that he's turned to me for help. That says it all.
He bought mineral oil to bleed them, did a bad bleed and then dropped the bottle all over the floor.

Can you nowadays bleed them with water/antifreeze, or do they still have... whatever issue it was that meant they hated water bleeds?
He's got the standard Echo brakes that come with the 2020 full build Mk6+

Cheers!

 

@Cap - you'll surely know.

Got to be honest - I'm not convinced they did :lol:

I asked after he'd already done the damage and he mentioned that the rear felt spongey and the front wasn't returning.
I'll push a water bleed through them tomorrow. If it leaks out, it's no worse than it currently is!

I have found that the newer TR brakes feel a little spongy just because they now use a 13mm piston. As for a water bleed I am not sure how well they handle it, should certainly work short term.
