hey all...

i got a question for everyone... if using the brita style kitchen sink filters....

1) do you still need to let the water sit in the open to allow for the chlorine to evaporate.... or will the filter handle that??

2) is the filtered product that these 'kitchen sink' types of filters produce... comparable to the filtration of say, distilled water, purchased at the store?? in regards to the needs/wants of the plant...

im aware the distillation process is more complex than the brita...lol... im just concerned with needs of the plant... would the plant respond better to one over the other...."all else being equal"....

any and all help is greatly appreciated...

Hello, well what is your water's TDS? Two the brita filters don't take out what it needs too. No it won't conpair to distilled water. i would have my water tested and see what's in it.Most of the time you can let it set for 24 hours and then use it. Are you in soil or Hydro?? I have two GE water filters in series with two filters one carbon and one to remove the other stuff in the water.I have two of these's linked together http://www.homedepot...&storeId=10051. And I use these two filters http://www.homedepot...1&storeId=10051 it makes my water more useable for me. Hope that helps. Peace
