boiling water

I have a question, instead of setting up a ro/di system or buying distilled water how about boiling the water?
Any suggestion is appreciated.

if ya boil the water and catch the steam that would be the best water ya could make !! but thats way to hard and takes alot of time !! also the cost of gas or electric would out weigh the cost of an ro/di unit !!

Boiling the water will only increase the concentration of the things you want to filter out and make it hot. As the steam leaves the pot, there is less water volume, but the contaminants do not leave with the steam. Also, you increase the chance of adding heavy metals from the pot to your aquarium.

That is distilling and it is not as pure as RO or RO/DI water.

Thank you guys, cleared everything up. Now I am really going to get a ro/di system.
Could anyone tell me which brand is good and cheap.
