    Rainwater is pretty much 0ppm, maybe depends on air quality it passes through. The ppm will rise as it lands on dirty roofs & gutters, ideally you'd want to collect it running off a plastic/metal roof that you can periodically clean.
    Still worth collecting it off an ordinary roof & have it pass through a mesh filter (to remove larger debris like leaves) then a sediment filter then a DI vessel (bigger the better) Just a matter of setting it up & storing it.
