I use rainwater too and its very economical. I have a big drum where I store rainwater during the rainy days and I also cover it with soft cloth to prevent insects from entering. Using rainwater could help us save more water and do more cleaning.

Looks identical to the set up I bought from Homebase but that's a better price.

The threads on the tap needed some PTFE tape to seal because the rubber gasket leaked.........not obvious until the butt starts to fill.

Hey all,

Just an idea

if I got tank 1 from rain drain

Filter

Tank 1 to Small RO system with the resin filter- waste water to go back into tank 1 and 0ppm water into tank 2

Would that work ?
