Thanks, I hadn't thought of that. I don't intend to use dehumidifier
water on a regular basis, so the copper won't accumulate. In fact, I
probably won't ever use it again. I just didn't have any RO water
handy, and the dehumidifier needed to be dumped... I only mentioned it
because the algae bloom didn't occur until I added the tap water, almost
a week later.
