This is correct, finally.  It was very annoying to listen to all the 
other 'correct' opinions for so long.

It doesn't address the corrosive aspects, however.  I had a very 
interesting conversation with an elderly gentleman at the model railway 
about that, but I am not enough up to speed on it to teach it.

I did spend a couple years in a thermal generation facility however, and 
all their feedwater was deionized to the eyeballs, as I recall, except 
in the lab where it was double deionized - we were instructed not to 
drink it.  It didn't seem that large parts were rusting off - quite the 
reverse.  I admit to not knowing much about the topic.  I used to stop 
and gaze at the attractive red and blue balls.
