Water source

I strated my tank with tap water and added the dechlorinator. When adding more water due to evaporation I am now using water fromt he store machines. The ones you can put your 5 gal. bottles under. I was told that water would be fine, but after reading the forums all i hear about is RO and that is a little expensive right now. Am I ok? Do I still need to add dechlorinator? They say its clean "pure water" with nothing added. Any opinions, suggestions or advice are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The water at the store i go to is RO. The one at yours might be too. Look and see if it says anywhere.

If it is RO my LFS suggests adding osmo prep prior to miking with salt.
