    DON'T use water, I don't think it would work and probably will harm your system... I would recommend disel. I haven't tried it on brakes but i have flushed engine parts with it.

    Just go ahead and flush it with the DOT 4 fluid. DOT 4 and 5.1 have the same base so there aren't going to be any compatibility problems. Just make sure you fully flush it and you'll be fine. there's no need to use anything else to try to flush all the 5.1 out.
