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.

I clean a friends farm she has a massive barn, there guttering on it is wrecked holes all over it,

and I have about 8 blue barrels catching it all,and they are sitting full and I have just tested them ppm 3 or 4,i have just covered the tops of them.

2morrow I will fill 8 25ltr drums and away I go with my backpack. no polishing or nothin

its not the same stuff that's in tap neil, doesn't need to just filter then maybe do and as you empty them give em a clean.

Where would I put the filter dodge , at the top of the butt before it enters it? Any links to a filter? The thing is I want it to rain now but when it rains that means no window cleaning lol . But definitely worth it
