Is it safe to mix the pigment and dye ink at the time of refilling?

I have G4210 and it's about time for refilling.  When I searched for refill bottle online, I noticed that a lot of non-canon products are dye inks although they all say that their products are compatible to G4210.  I am currently using the original canon ink which came with the printer at the first purchase, and it is pigmented ink.  Is it safe to mix these pigmented ink and dye ink when refilling the tank? Thank you in advance for your advice.

Hi,

Canon does not recommend using third party ink with it's printers. I recommend sticking with the Canon pigmented ink.
