We use tap water and have had no problems.

Sydney tap water seems to be quite innocuous

Subject: [Histonet] Tap Water or filtration system

We are in the process of getting our new Lecia Autostainer delivered to
us. The question came up if we will still need to continue using our
water purification system for the stainer. Mostly the docs would like to
save money but I don't want them to be unhappy with the result.


I would like to hear all the pros and cons of discontinuing/continuing
the use of our system and going w/ tap water from the sink. What is the
PH level supposed to test at? What difference will I see in the slides?
By the way, I only stain H&E  at the current time but there is a
possibility of starting PAS or other special stains.


Thank you in advance!!!
