Is rain water not potable as it is? unless you have high pollution in your area.

I just treat the rain water with chlorine and then filter it trough a sediment and a carbon filter. then at the sink I just use another filter with sediment, carbon and UV before I drink it. I do this for more than 15 years and no problems until now.

Rain water is potable, if somewhat acidic. However, we don't catch raindrops out of the air, we drain them off roofs. The surfaces can collect various contaminants. In storage, we use chlorine to sanitize. Since rainwater has zero dissolved solids, we add minerals - sort of Gatorade lite if you will.

At time of use, we filter with a 50-5 micron sediment, and 5 micron carbon block. Followed by 1 micron sediment, 1 micron carbon, sub-micron ceramic (Doulton) filters, and U.V.

Any pathogen or chemical that makes it through that gauntlet deserves to sicken me.

For years, my response: "I ingest enough toxins to kill anything that would come against me." It's worked pretty good for a lot of years.

We have metal roof here and bedside some bird poop (that is our minerals) not much else to contaminate our water supply.
We don't add any minerals. still have our teeth :)

To each his own. I don't prefer bird poop as an additive, personally. A little too "organic" for me! 😬

I prefer my bird poop sautéed with soy sauce and a splash of balsamic vinegar followed with a shot of,,, something.
