View Full Version : Choices for replacement water

in doing water changes during my cycling and LR curing period, i have been using water from my LFS which is purified in some way. Im not sure if its RO/DI but its good enough for the tank. Ive also heard that u can just go to the self-serve water at the supermarket and fill up. If this option is available, id like to know, as it would cut down on travel time. Buying a R0/DI is not on my budget schedule yet.

yes, you can purchase the water from the grocery store. it is usually not ro/di. more often, it's just RO water but is 98% purified. if that's the best you can get, it's a whole lot better than tap water.

Should I condition the grocery store water?

no real need to.
