    Has anyone ever tested it and what were your results?

    Also, if waste water from ro is around 200ppm, would it be advisable to run it through a di then into the tank?

    just got the ppm for the rain water round here and it was 37 thats pretty good seems as out of the tap its 360 round here that could be put into 25 litre barrels threw a filter to take any dedbury out and then pumped straight from a trolly with a ro attached or just pumped out of a water buut threw a di its definately got me thinking

    my folks house have a perfectly clean slate roof and immaculate guttering , the water falls in to the clean tank with a small sediment filter. On average the water is 013. the lowest i have had is 006. i even tried one batch on the window of the house without filtering and it wasnt that bad..the water coming off the roof in my house is junk its 054 -060 . i dont have a filter on it yet and my roof is not as clean as theirs if that makes any difference

    My tap is 125ppm and my water butt in the garden is 7ppm, at what point is it classed as hard water ?

    Think it's over 250 I heard someone say.

    My rainwater is 008. Straight off my shed roof through the dirty guttering.
