    I chose a condensing dryer because where it is situated there is no access to the outside. It is actually in the garage near to the kitchen door so it is convenient that way too.

    All the lint that comes off the clothes that are dried are caught by a fine mesh gauze 'skin' so no fibres actually get through to the residue water.

    Dryer condense is more like a solar distiller, not really a distiller by the book but obviously good enough for darkroom purposes in Your case.

    The condensed water from a drier will be contaminated with bacteria and mold spores (as well as the lints and other particles) the last thing you want to have in water you use in photography whether for making up solutions or washing and rinsing.

    Cheapest solution in the UK is a de-ionising water filter the Brita type (or equivalent) are inexpensive and in every supermarket. Buying water distilled or de-ionised is expensvive in the UK unless you buy in bulk.

    a de-ionising water filter the Brita type
    Indeed one of the best solutions and when boiled almost oxygen free.
