[My dad was chief engineer on merchant marine ships and he always cautioned me about using distilled water as he claimed it would eat metal as distilled water is looking for positive ions or something like that!]
I think he may have been confused about the difference between distilled water and de-ionized water. Coming from the car-wash industry where we use a lot of de-ionized or "spot-free" water, I know that it is a "hungry for metal" liquid. We had to use stainless or plastic plumbing in those systems, brass or iron would get eaten up pretty fast.
