Hey, just wanted all of you to know I recently bought a PPM meter to test the distilled water I was buying and to test rainwater; Out of the 3 distilled water brands I checked, "Silver springs" brand contained more than 13% TDS.
The others read "000"%- rainwater from my roof is about 3%, and rainwater collected in a bucket in the rain read 1%.
I contacted the Silver springs company and asked them what the contaminant was over 2 weeks ago, still no answer. I had trouble raisingTriops before,it was probably because of the SS water. Avoid it, despite it's claims of steam-distilled, ozone filtered, UV, etc.
"Crystal" and "Dixie" water both registered 000%, that's what I use now.
