Want warm water? Two options fill a black barrel and let it sit in the sun all day. In the summer this can heat the whole barrel 80 degrees. Today Im running water slowly through a long hose exposed to the sun. I will drench the fire with this warm water. I may or may add compost tea or fertilizer to this water. The main problem with adding tea or fertilizer is (i think) a situation where the biologicals quickly do their thing eating nutrients and organics and then rob the soil of oxygen and create acidity. Its hard to create ideal conditions for roots instantaneously. But thats what I gotta try to do.
