Did you have a bad experience? I was thinking that if my RO unit isn't here next week I would go fill two 5g jugs down at the grocery store RO machine. It's only $1.25 for 5 gallons.

I've been using that water for a long time with no obvious ill effects, 7+ years. As long as you test it before use. I would rather make my own, but getting into this hobby on a budget, there is always something else that needs more attention.

Yes. . . . I was monitoring my ro system pretty close but not close enough I guess. . . . My DI was bad and I was adding it too my tanks. . . Had an extreme outbreak of algae, cyno and diatoms. It was like adding tap water.
