Tap Vs Distilled Water: Now I Have Heard That As Long As The Resolution Of The Scanners

Hi, By the way I am one of those changing to film again and a question has risen to me reading things about negative scanning. In the eighties, I developed all my film with tap water and positive it without problems. Now, I have heard that since the resolution of the scanners, it’s a good idea to use distilled water to avoid salt crystals to be shown on your scanned file. I don’t have any problem using distilled water, but what happens before the fixer acts, you have to ample wash the negative and I supposed it’s a good idea to use tap water for this.
