    Not the coils I've seen. Also, keep in mind that aluminum is the third most abundant element in the Earth's crust, after oxygen and silicon. If aluminum was toxic to plants there wouldn't be any.

    When soil pH is lower than 5, which is deadly to plants in the first place.

    If your dehumidifier runoff is below pH 5, something is fundamentally wrong.

    The vast majority of aluminum is aluminum oxide, which is not a problem for plants.

    I mean technically anything in excess is toxic to your plants. Overwatering is fatal, doesn't mean I'm not going to water them. Anyways the test kit I ran had undetectable levels of al, cu, and pb, which are the three elements that my dehu would leach into the water if it did.

    As long as pH levels are above 7 and EC is low there's no reason to believe anything would leach into that water.
