I agree you can go to ebay and get an RO/DI unit for much cheaper.

The unit I purchased is the RD106 I believe. It is even more expensive through the companies site than the same product on Ebay.

Here is the link to the same unit I have and it has been working very well. Great price for a decent RO/DI IMO

My chemistry teacher told me that distilled is like evaporated water, there are no trace elements in it.

RO/DI is filtered and it does not remove everything, so distilled water is more pure.

It removes just about everything and is much cheaper in the long run then buying distilled water.

Q&A from Dr. Fosters website

"TFC) membranes remove between 94-98% of dissolved solids, and Hi-S Membranes have higher removal rates, between 97.5-99%, and are especially adept at removing silicates."

Congrats Mike, You are now free. Free from having to go to the LFS and stores to lug water around. We are free at last!
