Just as a reference, for those in the FW trade. You have to buy additives to add back into RO/DI water for FW. The process strips everything out. RO-RITE is one product. Dumping 0 TDS water into a freshwater tank will result in very unhappy fish and quite possibly a few deaths (personal experience).

Also it's best to heavily aerate the water as well.

I went back to using bottled for my FW and RO/DI for my SW running GFO to get the Phosphate and Silica under control in the FW

I have really nasty tap where I live. For awhile I was using bottled RO to dilute the tap, and it was a good compromise solution. Can't keep that up now with the larger tank, so I keep looking at getting my own unit.
