Yes i use it for water changes and topoff i also buy sell and propigate coral so for me waterquality is very important what it will do for you is insure water quality is perfect it makes keeping a reef longterm a lil easier some coral are more delicate than others if keeping coral id say a 10 it will also keep algae down is it an absolute? No but rather just makes reefkeeping a bit easier to maintain

IMO it is very important due to the fact that tap water is very nutrient ie: algae, but where I saw the most benefit was in my wallet. I was driving 15 miles to my lfs for 15 gallons of R/O at a $1 a gallon, and I often left with more than just water (how could I resist those corals!?!)

Also, it's nice to have water on hand for emergencies.
