I didn't say stainless steel. Somehow it got implied. The pipe in question
was the carbon steel typical of water lines.

And yeah, drink enough ultra-pure water it and it would kill you eventually.
Far, far quicker than cigarettes will.

You know how you are not supposed to drink seawater as it will cause your
body's cells to shrivel and die. High purity water will do the opposite -
your cells will explode. Osmotic pressure is not your friend here.

I shutter to think how painfull this would be...ugh....
