During this time of season, I pour the water collected to dehudifier down the drain. I was wondering if I could store this water in a rain barrel and use in summer for plants. Has anyone did this.
Why not? Water is water. It would be similar to distilled water. I would use it rather than putting it down the drain.
I take the container out and empty the water right on all my plants in barrels and pots.
My air conditioner is in the attic. It drains into a rain barrel and I use the water for my outside flower plant containers.
My mother used the water in the steam iron.
We always use the water for the dehumidifier to water the plants/grass outside. Seems a shame to waste it, especially since you're paying for the energy used to collect it.
The drain for the condensate from out AC will end up outside, where I can use it for the gardens.
I don't know how much there will be, but it's going onto the plants and not down the drain.
