My potted Fragipani & tomato have begun growing deformed leaves & fruit. What could cause this?
We have moved to a 1932 home could it be the water from the old pipes?
One is at front of house one is at back.

Welcome! Bianca22.
The change of water can certainly have an effect. You may want to have a plumber investigate those old pipes, not only for your plants' but for your own health.
Meanwhile, is it an option to use rain water?
By the way, you don't say where you live but Frangipani (Plumeria) go dormant in the winter months and don't need watering during that time.

Welcome! Would it be possible to post pictures of the problems here? Have you checked the plants for any pests? Are these the only plants you are watering with that water?
