I run through ro for my dilution water. My first attempt to proof down our whiskey with miniral rich municipal water (which happens to taste great) led to serious clouding (not haziness but chunky clouds hanging out from top to bottom) after a few weeks in the bottle. Our water on it's own is great for mashing but not the best for dilution.

Treatment is only necessary if it's necessary. If your water tastes fine with no filtration, give it a shot. Chances are, if your water is loaded with natural mineral content, those minerals will precipitate out of solution and cause clouding.

We are lucky with very good water (just a few PPM) but for proofing we still run it through carbon and then a particle filter (in case we pick up some carbon). Recommend you get it as real clean for proofing.
