What is Italian for "distilled water"

My husband and I will be arriving in Venice in September and one of the first things we'll need is distilled water for our CPAP machines (treatment for sleep apnea). How does one say "distilled water" in Italian and what kind of store will sell it?

I would also suggest that you take a small quantity with you, for when you first arrive, and/or ask your hotel concierge to purchase some for your arrival. Then you won't have to worry about finding it as soon as you get there after a long journey.

My guess is that you want a pharmacy for distilled water - that's where I've seen it in several other cities - I wasn't in a pharmacy in Venice, thus the guess.

Acqua distillata is what you are looking for.

You can find it in supermarkets no problem.
