as a by product of the aircon i produce distilled water for my batteries, i like free byproducts!


The condensate from an air conditioning system is nothing like as clean as distilled water.  It is soft water but tends to have a much higher organic content due to all the pollen, dust etc in the air. It will have much lower levels of salts, calcium, magnesium, sodium etc including sulphates, carbonates and chlorides.
