    Hello every body my question today is it good to use the water from a dehumidifier or it is to avoid because it pickup all the particle in the air. If i cook with oil or greecy meel (bacon or steak (I am hungry now)) and it is working will it pickup the greece in the air.

    It's not a good idea. I'm not sure why you want to reuse the water...but you are right it will contain some of the aerial contaminants that it took in i.e dust particles, microbes, etc. The water that comes out through the condenser is stored in your reservoir as distilled water. As it sits, it collects more dust, and becomes stale water.

    Let's put it this way, the dehumidify water isn't safe to drink nor is it safe for your dog to drink. Therefore it's not good for your fish either. Toss the water out, or dump it into the outdoor garden.
