“Purified” is a bit of a general term, so let me break apart the potential issues: 1) Distilled water shouldn’t be a problem. 2) Reverse osmosis filtered water may or may not be a problem depending on the water source. Some dissolved minerals could conceivably get through, and minerals are generally going to be ionic. 3) Ionic contamination along with moisture and current can lead to dendritic growth. DI rinse at the end of the cleaning cycle could reduce this risk. 4) Contamination could lead to increased foaming.

There is a ratcheted ring on the bottom of the cap, which locks the cap into place and prevents it from unscrewing during shipment. To remove, insert a flathead screwdriver between the cap and the ring and pry it loose so the perforations break free. Then remove the ring. It is similar to removing the tamper-proof lock on a plastic jug of milk.
The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to https://www.techspray.com/coc. Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers: https://www.techspray.com/batch-codes.
