I have a hydrolic floor jack that hasn't been checked or maintained for the past 8 years, and its always been shook around, dropped, etc. No leaks.

Besides, they don't have to use water either. There are other chemicals available with the same or better cooling properties as water that don't have any conductive properties.

That wont be a problem either, they can just use stainless steel tubing. It's an embedded system; flexible tubing is not necessary. Or if it was necessary, they could always use flexible copper tubing, which is frequently used for gas pipes and doesn't even leak that.
