Distilled water is expensive to run. A home RO or just an activated charcoal water filter is all you need to remove all contaminates from the water source. Once a year of sampling/monitoring your drinking is a good practice.

I admit, I do buy bottle waters for their containers, so we can refilled them keep in the frig or use on the boat.
