I'm saving up for a RO/ DI unit.I have cash but don't like spending lump sums on Stuff unless it's urgent. And I just bought a sterilizer that wasn't too cheap. thanks for the tip

You can always get a couple 5 gallon jugs and get some RO drinking water. It's at least better than tap, not as good as RO/DI though.
