    Nothing is the matter if you use tap. I'd just be concerned what is in it, and only your water provider can tell you that, as required by law. I'd leave it out a day or two to allow chlorine to dissipate, unless the water is going into a cloner, in which case you may want it included.

    Distillation is simply a separation process By boiling point. Take an original sample of water. It contains h2o and dissolved minerals and some trace elements. Now boil that sample but do not exceed the correct temp (212f or 100c). Now your sample is in a vapor phase, gas/steam. The gas/steam is purely h20 w/o trace elements Nd minerals. The steam is condensed (cooled) and the pure liquid h2o collects in a separate rez and the minerals n compounds are left behind.

    That was not the question at all, but thanks for the science lesson. :) Nice jars ;)
