Most of the time, regular tap water will be just fine. If you have a water softener, then this can pose a problem. You can use purified, or distilled water, but I can't tell you how many times I have seen a CHLORINE deficiency in plants by doing this. (Yes they use small amounts of chlorine) But if you use a balanced full fertilizer, then this should not be an issue.
