the Good 2O, the Bad 2O, and the H2O

by Synbadd » Thu Dec 30, 2010 10:19 pm

Hi all, i've just joind having bought a Fly trap and not wanting to kill it as i did so many as a child.
I have read that tap water, bottled water etc is a no go due to it's chemicals, minerals chlorine etc.

so far everyone suggests distilled water and deionosed water. my local supermarket here in france only sells demineralized water at about 1€ for 5l, will that be ok? i think it is but i thougt i should check with the experts.

And for the good of anyone else sharing my De-blah, De-Blah, Re-Blah water, "how many types of water can there be" sort of dilemma, can those in the know post as many "safe" names of water in this topic?

Thanks all

Yep, that should be fine.

Deionized, deinonised, demineralized, reverse osmosis, rain, melted snow...that's all I can think of for now :)
