Getting back to the 55 gallon

Hello! After a huge life change and a move I'm trying to continue with my 55 gallon saltwater tank. My question is... Can I safely use the purified/distilled water sold in gallon jugs at Walmart to fill my tank or am I making a dumb move there?
I have a really nice ro/di unit I bought from bulk reef supply but need to get the correct adapter in order to use it. Until then, I'd like another option to fall back on. Thank you!

Yeah that would be fine to use the bottled water a lot of people do this instead of buying an rodi unit

Thanks! I think I'll get out tonight and get a bunch of water while the daughter is asleep.

Walmart is almost tolerable in the middle of the night, by myself.
