Longer is generally always better, just make sure you have enough water in the pot so it doesn't dry out. In some odd cases you could evaporate more water out of the substrate in the jars but not if you use tape to seal the holes pretty well or have plenty of steam going on in the pot.

You can even used unboiled tap water in the prep of substrate before sterilizing, because any nasties that might be in the water are killed at the sterilization phase. After that step, if you were using water for something (like a casing or something), you should use distilled water, though I have not had a problem with spring/drinking water either. A slight exception would be if your tap water is well water, and it might have extra minerals like iron oxide (rust) or sulphur which might not be all that helpful but probably wouldn't cause much of a issue since it'd be nearly trace amounts.
