A friend recently put me onto catching the water that my air conditioning unit produces. Living in Florida, I have been able to recycle at least two gallons of pure water daily. I have a collection of carnivorous plants that require very pure water, so I save $ by using a rain barrel and the A/C run-off.
If I purchase reverse osmosis water, it costs 25 cents or more a gallon, and I go through two or more gallons daily in the summer with my very small collection, a very nice savings! Any extra, I add a little water soluble fertilizer and give it to my other plants! This is just one way to use water that was being wasted. Gotta love it!
