Precision Colors Ink for Canon P100?

I ordered this printer because of the ridiculous generous rebate.

I understand that Canon wants to lock me into their expensive ink supply - it looks like they are made from unicorn tears as a carrier and fairy dust as a pigment.

There is a lot information online about ink by Precision Colors (PC), but I am getting more and more confused as I watch more YouTube videos... So, here are a few questions of mine:

- Can you mix Canon and PC ink - when there is some left in a tank, and you refill all of them?

- If the above is generally OK, it looks like yellow ink is not compatible - you have to wash the tank with Windex from Canon ink before filling it with PC ink - correct?

- Would PC ink clog the head or cause any other problems in a long run?

- Any other safe alternatives, beside Precision Colors?
