Distilled water vs demineralised water
RE: Distilled water vs demineralised water
I've used distilled water for the last couple years. I figured I use about 5¢ of distilled water each night. Everything is still spotless, it's simple to use (some people say it's a PIA to use distilled water - don't know why), and I haven't had to alter my standard of living to afford the extra luxury.

I do use tap water run through a Brita filter for a room humidifier. And it hasn't shown signs of calcium deposits yet. But I don't run it dry either - hoping the concentration level doesn't get too high before I dump the leftovers.

I suppose you could do the same with your CPAP tank. Fill it to the full line and try not to run it dry.
