Distilled Water Gone

Just returned from the store. No distilled water. My girl is at day 40. What should I do about water changes

Go to a supermarket that sales Reverse Osmosis water from a primo or culligan machine as refills, Meijers, walmart,
Or find a water delivery company like Gordons water, Besco water comp, Primo etc…
Or buy a water distiller from amazon or eBay etc…
Or buy a under counter or counter top RO system that hooks to your sink faucet.
Or use tap water and ph it manually (ph up and down) before adding it to your reservoir.

I’d go to a pet store that sells saltwater fish, they usually also sell RO water. That’s where I get mine from currently.

Is it from a machine or bottle form there?

A place like petsmart would sell it in gallon possibly up to 3 gallong containers. The locally owned aquatic shops in your area just have the RO/DI units and water in storage tanks. They would fill whatever containers you bring. I have 5 gallon buckets, or containers on wheels pending my ability to carry them around and such.

Definitely starting with the hydroguard for fill up but recharge does that come now or l8ter

I’m having that issue too. I can’t afford my own machine for distilled water. If I use tap water do I just recalibrate the ph monitor and put it in? Then wouldn’t the nutrients just balance out the water? OR Do I have to add ph drops to the water to change the water tank’s PH? Any advice would be helpful.

I would recalibrate if you the switch. Here is a cheapish option for a filter that would work for most.

Here in town I’m experiencing a water shortage. How bad would it be if I boil water and let it sit over 24 hours before filling?

Have you…

I saw your response already. I’m asking outside of your list
