--answer--Do i need a chlorine filter for my garden hose?

Hi ForZion,

Your Question: Since we are trying to build up the soil life to produce the humic and fulvic acids to feed the plants alkaline minerals, isn't chlorinated city water opposed to the goal we're trying to achieve? Before I spend money on a chlorine filter for my garden hose, I wanted to see what you thought about it. I don't know the ppm of Chlorine the city uses. Do you use chlorinated water and still get high brix plants? If you are concerned about costs, I can get a standard water filter housing for $40 and a good quality GAC/KDF standard water filter cartridge for $21, rated for 20,000 gallons. If i want 99% Chlorine free, the GAC/KDF cartridges will cost $39.

Answer: Of course it is Best to not have chlorinated water to water ones garden or plants with, because this Chlorine may turn into Chlorine Gas and "Kill" the Soil Life !

I live in town and we have Chlorinated water, which I do not like, but For my wifes house plants she lets the water she is going to water her house plants with set in jars to allow the chlorine to evaporate before watering her house plants !

But, for the yard and garden things in our yard I do not bother with or really worry to much about the treated water because I have applied lots of High Calcium Limestone to the garden and yard !

This Limestone will immediately react with any chlorine and form Calcium chloride and Buffer the harmful effects as long as I have enough Calcium !

Smile Tis your choice.
