Can I use tap water to test my system?

I haven't gotten my PC ICE in the mail yet and I was wondering if I can use tap water to do the leak test. Or will this put minerals and other junk in the system and contaminate it?

It reminds me of a friend who ran his car engine with tap water. Iron block alluminum head alluminum radiator I think. End result a year later he was having overheating issues. and mud flying out of the overflow tank. It was really rust and corrosion. Wasnt pretty. WE tried everything to reverse it but it was time to ditch the whole engine.
