Deionized water is distilled water that has been run through a process that removes ions from the water, as the name suggests. I wouldn't recommend deionized water if you're going to be mixing it with concentrates. In theory deionized shouldn't have a pH level at all, but it does re-ionize after time. It also tends to form carbonic acid when exposed to CO2. Since you plan on mixing it with concentrates you may want to just use distilled water.
'Don't know if Mayhems concentrates might react with carbonic acid, or if the re-ionization of DI might effect it. We'll see if Mick or the Th0rn0 might chime in.Edited by ZytheEKS - 10/19/13 at 1:16am
