As suggested by matt, distilled or DI water would not have ions and would thus have no electrolytes problem
from what i saw galvanic cells use galvanic corrosion so you were studying the same thing.

after i read your post i remembered, distilled water probably is ok but the distilled deionized you mentioned is the better (you can wash a circuit board off with deionized water)... but of course a silver and gold hookah would be ideal too
