    blimey, ive just been ripped off!

    just bought 5 x 1 litre bottles of distilled water from Halfords, came to £6.50!

    i have a 250mm tall tube res and 1/2" tubing, everything is going outside the case, do u think 5litres of distilled water and 1/2 litre of waterwetter will be enough for my setup?

    also, is distilled water just boiled water? could i have just saved £6.50? :worried:

    thanks,

    5 litres should be enough.

    And I don't think, that destilled water is just boiled water; but what do I know :eyebrow:

    I'm about 99% certain that boiling the water will not do it. Just try putting a pot on the stove with tap water and boil it till there is no liquid left. What you will have left is all the impurities, salt, calcium, and such that were in the water. Just boiling does not removed these.


    The steam is the distilled water. You need to boil the water with something slanted over it, which allows the steam to condense then run off into a container.

    The easier way requires you to have a condenser which can be quite expensive.

    Truly deionized water is actually more pure than just distilled. There's not a lot of difference, but deionized is what i plan on going with. For DI water, I think they basically start off with distilled water and then run it through special filters to remove any ions that might possibly be left. DI water is actually effectively non-conductive.

    I would defo not wanna use the tap water from round here and just boil it up, i live on the south downs and all the water is filtered down through the chalk cliffs and carries a ton of minerals, get massive deposits of lime scale in our kettle/washing machine/dish washer. If u live in a soft water area boiling it might be enuf. I can remember making distalled water at school but can't remember if we evaporated and condensed it or just boiled it.

    De-ionized, De mineralised, or "That stuff u put in car battaries"
