In its native range, it will experience 35°C from time to time. If that is going to be the temp every day, I'd do wat I previously suggested. Direct AM sunlight, indirect from noon on so it's in the shade for the hottest part of the day.

Your AC water may be just fine, but it could have also started the adding of metal ions into the media to a point where it wasn't harmful. But starting to use it again, adding more ions, may now be increasing those ions to harmful levels. While any water is better than no water short term, if you can't get appropriate water, having these plants may not be a good choice.

Try to find an inexpensive source, or increase your rain water storage. You can also get a TDS meter (~$10 US on Amazon) to test your tap water. It might be OK to use. My tap water fluctuates from about 90 to 130 ppm TDS, however it's low in nitrates, sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and other minerals that I can switch to that when my rain water reserves run out. If your TDS is low, see if you can get a water quality report to see the contents of your tap water.

See optique's post. Not risky, just a little time consuming.

Don't divide it unless it falls off on its own, or very easily separates.

1:1 or 2:1 ratio of peat:perlite is what most people use.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
