Straight water in the system causes the engine to operate at lower temperatures better than coolant. At Florida rest stops do they also forbid you from working on cars? Nobody's ever complained about radiator flush operations at any states I've driven through. Trick is to NOT add water until the engine's entirely cooled off.

For me every Summertime cross-country trip includes radiator flush with water and additives, flushed again and again, been doing this for years. Add anti-freeze coolant in October.
