It pulls ions from other sources to balance itself out. What it pulls out from where, I don't know. It also can have a very metallicy taste to it as well. I would recommend RO (Reverse Osmosis) water. If you have really bad water, you can save yourself in the long and purchase a small RO unit. I have no affiliation to this company, but you will not find a better price for the quality.
Just get the portable system PO-4-3P100. You can take it with you if need be and it has a set or replacement filters. Probably more info than you wanted.
Thanks! Great info.

I think I might do a side-by-side test next time I do chicken.
