Question DetailsAsked on 1/12/2018

I’m planting a tree in a cemetery that uses well water. I need an inexpensive water filter to water outdoor trees

I prefer a water filter to attach to a faucet then waters through a garden hose.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

If they water the grass and existing trees from that well, should be no problem for a tree - and actually better for it than highly purified water.


Basically speaking, any on-the-hose type filter would just filter out sediment and some of the minerals the tree needs - and a high efficiency or chemical-eliminating sediment plus carbon filter would only produce a trickle from a hose because their throughput is quite low. If the water is so bad that it is not safe for trees, I would get a red flyer or garden type big-tires wagon which will fit in your car (kid's plastic sled in winter if need to water in snow, which is pretty unlikely) and a couple of 5 gallon water jugs with water from home. About $5-8 each for water cooler type jugs, about $15-20 each for heavier duty camping type, including the type with spigot on the bottom or at the cap (when tilted on side).


Watts and Omnipure and such also make hose-connection filters like you are talking about - google for in-line water filter hose Amazon - for instance for examples like this -

About $20-40, replacement filters (probably 100 or so uses for your case unless water is real bad) about $5-10 each. Also available (at probably a pretty high markup) from camping stores like REI, Cabellas, Bass Pro, Sportsman Warehouse, etc and in the hunting/fishing/camping area of some box stores. In hardware/plumbing area of some other stores.
