sorry i forgot to mention that i'm not pulling directly from the tap... i know better than that, i just bought an RO system with a UV light attachment and that is where my original question comes into play. is an RO system with an attached UV light sanitary enough for racking and/or bottling?

i didn't consider oxogen in the water though...

Once it leaves the realm of the UV light, everything downstream is a potential source of contamination unless regularly cleaned and sanitized which I doubt that it is.

I'm guessing your RO/UV treated water is delivered at your sink via a gooseneck spigot.  It will be fine to top up with that water. 
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.
