    OK, so, from what I understand, 精製水 has various types, one of which is distilled water. The correct word for distilled water is 蒸留水 – jōryūsui.

    So, I don’t think you can use just any 精製水 in the CPAP.

    I just went to the drug store to get laundry detergent and decided to take a look and they only have 精製水 without much explanation…

    So… they should at least be aware that not all are ok and should remember the kanji 蒸留水.

    Home centers etc like Momotaro should have it since it is still used in wet cell batteries etc. You can also buy it online, so they could maybe send it to their hotel?

    On Amazon they sell CPAP water! It just says 精製水 in the title but it has 蒸留水 down in the explanation.
