Hi all,

... lately I have a dehumidifier running in my shop quite a bit - it produces a load of - what looks like - clean water...

Right now I empty a 2 gallon tank every day - but if I connected the "constant running drain-hose" I bet I get way over 5 gallons if I let it run 24/7...
Basically any A/C will be the same - so if one would collect all the run-off - it could be a substantial amount of water - potentially enough to keep the system topped up....

I know there is a load of surfaces this condensate comes in contact with, before collecting in the tank...
There could be longterm leaching of copper, aluminium, zink, chrome, etc....

Did anyone ever any water analysis on these condensates?

One could easily pass the resulting water through some gravel/sand filter (if it makes any sense)...

Considering the need to prepare tap-water for Aquaponics use - this water has no chlorine or chloramine...

What DOES it have that would be detrimental to the system?


Cheers,

thjakits
