The waste water

The waste water is much better for your plants than the RO/DI.................................................. ..................................

I guess that would get rid of the white crusty buildup... I'm curious why you would try it.

I use my fw waste water for my plants. Are you saying I can use my sw waste for the same? I thought it would kill the plants.

I meant the RO/DI waste water, RO wastes 2-3 gallon for each gallon of "good" water. The water that is wasted down the drain is excellent for plants and washing clothes too

Oh, I use my fw that I take out of my tank in my wife's flower bed. Is that ok? I mean is there any benefit?

Nope, nothing wrong with it, unless your using very hard water in your fish tanks, but I'm not enough of a plant person to know if that would matter.

I usually fill my washing machine with waste water. Makes doing laundry a little longer of a job but it saves some water on the ol water bill.
