Should deionized or distilled water be used in the Incubator, Water Bath?
Type of water used in the Water Bath Incubator.
The Incubator, Water Bath, 110 Vac(Catalog Number/Order Code 2616300) and Incubator, Water Bath, 220 Vac(Catalog Number/Order Code 2616302) instructions to use distilled water only, not deionized (DI) water. The DI water, in it's quest for ions, will aggressively attack the stainless steel in the bath, pitting the surface and allowing corrosion to start. This will shorten the life of the unit.
