Is water from a condenser tumble dryer safe to use in a fish tank?
posted by roofus to Pets & Animals (11 answers total)
On my tumble dryer the instructions suggest the condensed water can be used for watering plants, filling a steam iron, or a car battery, but not for drinking. I would like to use this water for water changes in my amazon tropical freshwater fish tank, as I live in a hard water area, and believe the fish would do better with soft water. I have found conflicting advice elsewhere online, but can find no authoritative source to suggest that the water is anything other than distilled. Is it pure enough for fish?
