Q.A/C Condensation Used for Plants

Anonymous added on July 24, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if the water that comes from the air conditioning condenser coils is harmful when used in gardening? Our home A/C unit produces about 10 gallons of water per day during the summer, and I have been collecting it and using it to water a satsuma tree and a cantaloupe plant. Should I be concerned about any kind of contamination or harmful effects in the fruit?

Air conditioner condensation water is almost the same as rain water. They both come from the moisture in the air. So you are doing fine. I use the moisture from our window units for my roses.
