Distilling Grobo drain water

#1

@Stephen,
@fuz was going to ask you a question, I figured to ask you here… If we get a distiller system, is it possible to put the ((used water)) through it and use it for the plant?.. I got curious on how the response to this would be myself… :wink::smiley:

@SilverGrobo I do t see why you couldn’t put it back through the distiller isn’t that how public water systems work?

@chris_barfield,
Sounds like it would work like that… :wink::smiley:

Interesting question @SilverGrobo,

I think a test is in order. Off the top of my head, if you are using RO or distilled this in theory would be fine. If you are using tap, you may experience an issue with chloramine which isn’t eliminated with a simple distillation. Many municipalities add this to their local tap water and it’s not something we growers want in our water.

Try it out on a couple house plants and see how they react. They will tell you if they don’t like it. :wink:

Best,
Stephen

Interesting…I did buy a distiller to provide my plant with the right type of water…I personally was going to use the used water for other house plants…never thought of actually running the used water bak through the machine…I will have to test this theory and let you guys know :slight_smile:

Don’t try zero water filter that didn’t work. Nothing but droppy and brown leaves. I’m curious if that would work. Seen them on Amazon didn’t pull trigger though

Yea I bought mine on Amazon. It seems to work great so far…but I haven’t had a chance to test the water just yet …but seems to be a good buy:)

Yeah I agree @Bongsmoker89, I’ve seen a couple of zero water users not have success. I’d avoid this water if possible.

@Stephen,
@fuz says, he would like to get a (distiller) to take tap water (first zero filter it out), then from there (distill) it for the plant… Would this work?.. :thinking::herb:

I’m not sure @SilverGrobo,

I’ve seen several growers using the Zero water filter not have success. I don’t recommend it for use in our system at this time. Distilling tap water may present a problem with excess chloramine which isn’t eliminated with a simple distillation. This may be a good project/test for your house plants, I’d try to keep the input water the same for each grow in your Grobo.

Cheers,
Stephen
