• Self Watering Garden - Using recycled water from an air conditioner

    HVAC condensate is an excellent source of relatively clean, chemical free water for non potable use. However, I caution you against spraying the water. It is possible for the water to pick up microorganisms when it comes in contact with the AC coil. Legionella is a particular threat. Spraying the water can release these into the air where they can be breathed in. If used for irrigation, the water should be used in a subsurface or drip system.
