No it's not a good question

Why would you want to drink de-ionised water?

And no it is not good for you.

Drink water from the cold tap, if you want to pay more then buy a bottle of water.

The water is technically safe to drink, but there is a risk - when the resin fails it becomes highly toxic.
So I would strongly recommend that you dont drink it.

Again i beg to differ. While the vessel will produce di water, there is a real risk that the water will not be bacteria free. A standing vessel will be an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Drink the water from the tap not a di vessel

Ive just tested the water with the metre & its 002 ppm,,I suppose it ain't bad considering we are in a hard water area.

Give your vessel a shake and run a few litres through it and give it another try. What's your PPM before?

This is true and an aspect I hadn't covered - though my fundamental point of not drinking it still holds.

Why would you drink water that had gone through your hosepipe anyway ?

lol my bad, give it a shake then run a few litres through it, just in case the minerals have settled in transit, plus you never know how long its been filled and stored dry.
