tap water vs. distilled water?
    #2355390 - 02/19/04 05:26 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

my friend has always used distilled water and recently decided to try tap water for watering his casings. Is there any issues with tap water? does it harbor contams? chemicals in tap water hurt mycelium growth?

ive never had problems. if you live in a big city bottle or tap might be the way to go. big cities are notorious for hard hard water, more chemicals to clean it up and make it safer.

I was having a problem with little black flies (fungus knats ?) or something liek that, and the lady at the plantland said something about trying distilled water. Since the verm they get is supposedly presteralized, that would leave the water thats in the verm the only other thing they could have come from... perhaps distilled is the way to go?
