Modern coolant is good enough that it doesn't make much difference. Now...distilled is better, and the notion that tap water is better is absurd. As is the idea that a 1.4 bar rad cap is an upgrade in any way, but hopefully we won't go there again.
As others said, bad example. It's not in a shop's best interest to do things with a passion or to ensure your car doesn't have deposit build up internally. What owner is going to go "HAY U USED TAP WATER IN MY ENGINE! UR FAULT MY RADIATOR CLOG!"


Distilled water is $1. Too much to ask?
