Do you have a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter? If you do, you can test that water and see how pure it is. The purest water would have 0 pp(i think thousand), and acceptable would be like 20 ppt. Also test it for phosphate, nitrate and ammonia.

i have heard of distilled water being stored in copper tanks? i dont know how much truth that holds but for the price of buying it again and again your best bet is investing in an RO/DI unit that you can make your own water right from home. if your planning on being in this hobby for long term then i personally feel a RO/DI and TDS meter are a must as buying by the gallon will get to expensive.
