There are multiple amount of differences between distilled water and spring water.
One main difference between distilled water and spring water is its mineral content. Distilled water is the product of distillation. Distillation means the original water source has been converted into steam and then cooled down until it condenses into its final distilled form. Which equals out that heavy minerals and metals (salts and other composited) don't generally survive the conversion to steam and are left behind as salts.

It's all in the name, spring water comes from "springs" it is essentially water from mountains which has been filtered by rocks, giving it a high mineral content,, spring water is not pure water. Distiller water, on the other hand is "supposedly" as close as makes no difference pure water.

Distilled water has all impurities removed, example chlorine and sodium. It's basically 100% pure H2O. It is also a standard chemists use for accurate tests. It can be drank like normal water. That's about it.

In addition to the "impurities" and such that gets removed, you also lose the salt when you distill water. Biological cells have a base saline content of 0.9%, which is managed through your salt intake. People primarily consume salt through water, and taking that out of your diet could have bad consequences.
So if anyone actually drinks distilled water, make sure you replace your salt intake somehow!
