The grocery store around the corner sells the stuff for a little over $1 for 2.5 gallons. The lads is much further away and sells rodi for $1/gallon. Anyone have input on if using this stuff would be effective?

Is this stuff prepackaged in a bottle, or is this water you get 'bulk' and you put it in your own container?

The only REAL way to know is to test it. Even bottled distilled water... even water you get from your local LFS! And test it EVERY time you buy it.

A TDS meter is dirt cheap, buy one. It should last you forever and it's very worth having, whether you buy water or make your own. NEVER trust somebody else's water, always test it.

Water sold at grocery stores is generally RO but not DI. The quality is dependent on the quality of the input water, the pre filtering they do, the quality and age of the RO membrane and the pressure. Ozonization will potentially oxidize any remaining impurities but not remove them. I'd either go to the LFS or invest and get your own RO/DI filter
