How to save on water in your garden

Water filters and sprinklers can be a handy solution for keeping your plants healthy, but if you’re using them, you might want to consider whether the water they purify is safe for the water you use.

BBC Radio 4’s Water Matters programme is at 11:00 BST on Monday 16 February.

Water filters are a great way to protect your plants from contaminants in the water.

They can remove contaminants that are present in the tap water, like lead, arsenic, mercury and heavy metals.

They’re easy to use, and there are many models and brands available.

They remove all the water in a tap from a tap water system, meaning there’s no need to worry about the water getting contaminated if it ends up in your tap.

If you’re worried about the quality of the water, you can check if the filter is made from glass, which is better than tap water.

Water purifiers can also help prevent mould and bacteria from developing, as well as helping to reduce your chances of a water quality issue, such as chlorosis, which can cause your plants to grow poorly.

Water systems can also filter out harmful bacteria that can cause damage to your plants.

But even if you have a water purifying system, there’s one more thing you should consider: the chemicals that go into the water can also cause harm to your environment.

What are some of the chemicals in water?

The chemicals that are in tap water include chloramines, chloramine compounds, chloroform and trichloroethylene.

These chemicals can be harmful to your health and your environment if they get into your water supply.

They affect plants by changing their growth, flowering and colour, as they grow, and they can also affect other aquatic organisms.

Chloroform is a strong carcinogen, which means it can affect the growth of some fish, including carp and cod.

These fish eat chloroacetate, which has been linked to cancer in laboratory animals.

Trichloromethane, a more toxic chemical, can also be found in tap and bottled water, and can cause eye and respiratory irritation.

What can you do about it?

Some chemicals can harm plants by blocking the flow of nutrients to the plants.

If chloroacetic acid (CA) is used in water, it can reduce water flow to plants by increasing the pH of the tap.

Other chemicals, such a disinfectant called chloramphenicol (CO) and a fungicide called trichlorethane, can be used to remove harmful bacteria.

These are generally used for disinfection and water treatment, so if you’ve got a water system that’s using these chemicals, it’s important that you keep them out.

If the chemicals aren’t in tap, try using a filter that filters the water and allows for proper drainage.

If your water system doesn’t have filters or filters that can remove chloroachloride and trifluoroacetic acids, you may need to buy new ones.

The only way to reduce the amount of chemicals in your water is to use less water.
