Switch to ro/di water

I had to use tap water when moving tank. I need to switch to ro water and was wandering what the safest route would be. Should I do partial changes over a period of time and if so what do you all suggest

You could do like 25% just like a regular water change I don't think changing from tap to ro makes any difference its just purer thats all.
