    Unhappy Tap Water

    I just have a quick question. The adapter that I use for my ro filter just needed to sorta not work. It works technically but it's too loose so it sprays water everywhere. I need to buy a new adapter but in the meantime can I temporarily water my plants with tap water...just my super market opens so I can buy some DI water until I get my adapter. Or better yet...anybody know how to tighten a two way switch adapter?

    You can temporarily. Afterwards I would recommending flushing (flooding and draining) your plants for best results.

    they'll be fine with tap water until you fix your RO.

    How long will it take to get it fixed? As long as the mix remains moist, you might be better to forgo watering until it's fixed.

    Your tap water is a lot better then some people I know lol. Just make sure you keep the soil moist and make sure it doesn't dry out or the minerals will solidify.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
