I let the tap water sit for 5 hours in a white container. Is that enough resting time?

I just came home from work and did the tests.

I'm probably going to mix my tap water with RO/distilled water for water changes. 10% tap water and 90% RO/distilled water in a laundry bucket + remineralize using fluval shrimp supplement (a few drops). Going to do small 10% water changes weekly (my WC plan).

p.s: There isn't much difference between RO/distilled water in terms of using it in a shrimp tank right? Is distilled an okay substitute for RO water? I'll probably check RONA or LOBLAWS in my area if they have RO water. If not I'll probably just have to settle for distilled as a substitute.
