    Did you never see polzn bladz water but set up?
    Can't remember how many but more than 6 all linked so as one gets to the top the next one fills
    All from a metal garage roof
    You'd be surprised how much water will collect from a reasonable sized shed roof
    And don't call me shirley

    As daveyboy1 said you'd be surprised. I emptied it 2 weeks ago & it was full up this morning. Does it matter how much it collects. It's all free & come off at between 7 & 13ppm so can run it through pretty quick. Collected just under 200 litres this morning all buck shee.

    Polzn bladz uses a filter made of socks on the end of the gutter pipe to remove ant big particles..also cleans metal roof regularly
    Comes out under 10 ppm and then straight through di
    The colour of it don't matter as comes out the other end pure

    And I have a filter Mage of old tights on the end of the pipe just before it goes in the water butt which I change once a month.
    Anything else you wanna knock about it.
    Can you not just ask rather then criticise everything.

    Mine before it goes throught into the butt hits the filter then I got a couples of handfuls of resin in the funnel just before it goes into the butt so it's pretty pure before it comes out.
