    You can but it will leave spots all over the glass. Hunt around the site, you'll find loads of info.

    Quick run down mate, you'll need a tds meter to find out what the ppm (parts per million) of your tap water is which be a deciding factor in whether you'll need 1 deionising vessel full of resin or 2 vessels or reverse osmosis system and dionising vessel. It's one of those how long is a piece of string questions sorry.
