Can I use Homemade distilled water?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am building my water cooling loop and havent yet bought distilled water to mix with my Ekoolant. I Dont really wan tot go out and buy distilled water when I could make it myself here. I mean its basically the same process as what those companies do that sell it. What do you guys think, can I jsut make it myself using the guide below, or should I just ge myself to the store and buy it? Thanks!

Guide i would use: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Distill-Water/step6/Removing-and-Storing/

I suppose you could but generally speaking distilled/deionised water is so cheap anyway that its not really worth the effort.

It would cost you more to make it then to buy it wink.gif (time and power, let alone testing to really make sure it's hitting the proper ppm)
