    It is not processed the same way as distillation, but it is quite the equivalent.

    Hay, Hellz here,
    Rain Water (hopefully not acid rain), Distilled, R.O., and De ionized water are all good for CP
    hope this has helped,

    I use deionized water from our environmental laboratory. It is slightly more pure than distilled, because its process doesn't allow for it to be exposed to the air, as would distilled water - so my co-worker tells me.

    I go every so often to the closest gas station to buy a few litres of de-ionized water at a time for my CP. The water you described is probably the exact same thing I buy. No negative effects so far!
