Wichita Falls resident Clayton Lane said he collects 2 to 3 gallons per day from his air conditioning unit by putting a milk jug under the condensation pipe.
“Walk around the outside of your house. Take a look at your pipes,” Lane said. “See if you’ve got one that’s dripping water on the outside - usually a white PVC pipe that's coming out. Just find it; stick a little something under it.”
Lane then waters his plants and trees with the water.
“[It is safe] on your yard to water your plants, anything that's not going to be consumed by the public itself,” said Lou Kreidler with the Wichita Falls Health Department.
Kreidler said that water is also not allowed in pools, even if the water is being treated. The AC condensation water is not considered safe to drink.
