    As we know tap water contains all types of pollutants. Lime in tap water results in it being hard water.

    Tip 1 - you can soften tap water by pouring water through a
    peat filter.

    Tip 2 - you can get soft water from your refigerator after
    defrosting.

    Tip 3 - you all know this one. By collecting rainwater of
    course.

    I have tried all the above and have found that during the hot summers when there is not much rain, collecting the ice from the refrigerator or freezer then allowing it to defrost works great. Bonus is you can flush the accumulating nutrients out of your soil and you don't need a big resevoir for collecting rainwater.

    cheers,
    C

    the ice that forms in the freezer is from water vapor so it is safe. he isnt talking about ice from an ice maker

    of course, you need to be one of the 3 people in america that still has a freezer that isnt "frost free"..
    I dont think I have seen one of those since about 1972..

    but yes, that kind of ice would be safe..
    it condenses right out of the air..

    not all frost free freezers work very well at keeping themselves frost free, especially after its several years old or you stuff it to the gills with food or you live in an area with alot of humidity. our freexer is "frost free" but it still needs a manual defrost about very 18-24 months
