    I have seen a thread on this but now I can't find it.

    How do you do it so that the water is ready to use without having to spend money putting it through a (DI?)

    cheers

    Dodger is the man to ask he harvests rain water I'm sure he will be on here to help mate, I would like to know as well because I live in a small block of flats which has rainwater butts and the management company said I can use this water to fill up my tank but when I looked in the butt it was full of dirt! Surely if you connect an Ro to it you would loose a lot of the water as it chucks out the dirty water more than it puts in the good water, or the only other option is a DI.
