Deionized water in custom loop

Hello guys, as suggested before in this forum i just run the blitz kit 1 into my 2 rads and now i am about to install the whole loop and run the blitz kit 2, read the instructions and it says its just fine to use deionized water during this procedure.

But heres the deal, i cant find distilled water anymore(last time i found was 3 years ago and it just finished).

I have both the mayhems biocide + and the inhibitor + are these 2 drops enough to protect my system using deionized water or i will still need distilled (maybe placing a special order but it will take days).

Thanks for your time.

DI is really no different from distilled water just different process of making it, there might be less purity in DI but tbh. I wouldn't stress over it at all, Its fine and once you start using Biocide+ & Inhibitor+ this stuff will take care of everything else, your system will be as safe is can be.

If your loop contains up to 1L of water use 2 drops of each on initial fill up, then add single drop of each every 3 months.

If your loop contains 1.5L - 2 L of water, initially use 2 drops of each, but use 2 drops of each every 3 months.

Hope that helps

Use the distilled. Its actually purer. I get it for around $.95 a gallon at Shoprite.

Check the label and make sure that no "minerals were added for taste" or any other alterations. It should be pure distilled.
