    It's a crock of you know what. I am between NYC and Albany and use rainwater here no problem at all. I'd imagine it's even better further up north. You'll be fine!

    I use rainwater and it seems fine....other than encouraging algae no matter what I do.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
