RO water is chemically pure. Water is a fantastic solvent and will dissolve anything eventually, which is why it's called the universal solvent. Better that you drop a heater into your RO reservoir to warm it to tank temp than to introduce it to 200F+ temps and risk contaminating it. That's what I used to do anyway.
