    Distilled water is cheap enough in most of the US (I understand this is very different in the UK and elsewhere) to just not be an issue. It's $0.79 a gallon at the local Kroger. It's a bit more at some other local grocery stores but still less than $1.20 per gallon at worst case. I routinely use it for all my developers even though I've seen no indication that I need to, just because it's cheap insurance. I haven't used it for stop, fix etc. because my belief has always been that those are less critical. I do mix Photo-Flo with it for my final rinse.

    I once bottled liters of dehumidifier water to use. Within a few weeks there were blooms of something growing in every bottle. Brand new dehumidifyer so it was all fresh from the air. Algae grows in mine regularily so I have to keep a cap of bleach in it.

    Yes, I know about the stuff that can grow in dehumidifier water so I put ONE DROP of unflavored bleach per five gallon jug to prevent bugs. Steam distilled is my primary source, but in the summer, I help but save a few jugs of the "cheap stuff" for backup. The steam distiller sux a few thou watts and is pretty hot to run in the summer.
