I’m drinking rainwater again after 6 months of tap water. After my tank ran down over summer, I didn’t set up the filter again until now. Why did I take so long when my favourite drink is rainwater??
- Leaf Eater on the pipe coming from the gutter
- First Flush Diverter to wash the roof and gutter every time it rains. I clean the filter after rain because it gets pretty mucky
- Screen covering the opening to the tank
- Ceramic and charcoal filter in the kitchen
There’s a weeping hose attached to the bottom plug which removes water below the tap to water the vegetable bed behind the tank. A timer is a very important addition because I once left the weeping hose running for 24hrs and lost a whole tank of water.
