tim replied to Lamp Addict's discussion Can I top off this Copper Crestworth Astro Baby with distilled water?
"you can do whatever you want. the real question is should you? anyway in my opinion you should give it a try, the worst that could happen is the density of the liquid becomes too low, in which case all you would need to do to correct the problem is…"
