Just buy it from the lfs or supermarket. Ro is good, preferably rodi

In the long run that's no problem. But, I need to get some tomorrow, and can't go to my lfs in time and get to work (I'm in highschool by the way). But walmart if on the way home and I thought that I could use distilled without problem. Or maybe just this once?

Ya, i think walmart is good enough. But try for the rodi whenever possible. With a 3g, you need top notch water quality

Well I know walmart had those water station things, not sure what kind of water it is, but I think distilled should be fine. At least for now.
