RE: Free distilled water for humidifiers.
I use filtered rainwater in my S9 and in the morning I empty it - disassemble the tank and wipe everything dry with a tissue, then I leave it to air out until the next night before re-assembly.

Filtered through bird droppings, pollen, dust, plant debris, fungus, asphalt shingles, and whatever else sits on your roof or whatever you have for collecting rainwater.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
