Cleaning filter media

cjde

Can distilled water be used just to rinse ceramic media and sponge if not using tank water? (I’d never use distilled water as tank water).

Maybe you can I don’t know? But why would you. Any chance you get to change a little water should in my opinion be used to change water in the main fish tank.
Using water to do two or three jobs before you toss it is standard practice in my house.
Using clean water just once to wash media ? Are you mad?

Don’t be frightened to change water in a fish tank.

edit
Please don’t take offence at my questioning your sanity, but if you paid as much for every litre of water as I do you would find multiple ways to use every litre/ gallon.

I agree with flyfisha. I guess you might be able to use distilled water, but it’s just easier and more efficient to use a bucket of old tank water when carrying out a water change.
