Well water

Is well water bad for cp's. I have been using it and my plants are really healthy. I also boil the water and let it cool then use it to water my plants with it. Does boiling the water do any good?
I didn't think well water was bad because it doesn't contain any chemicals or chlorine.
but it does contain minerals which are bad for cps,cheapest alternative is distilled water.which is cheaper than a dollar per gallon.that is the best and cheapest alternative.
Yes, well water could work ONLY if it is low in minerals. If the kind you have does have a lot of minerals then I would suggest to stop using it.
Boiling it makes it worse... It evaporates some of the water, leaving a higher concentration of whatever minerals there are in the water to start with...
