Rainwater - with a treated Roof

Postby DJPrepper » Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:31 pm

What are the best ways of collecting rainwater, ex-roof run off.

The Roof gets treated for Moss, which is a real problem, and the chemicals are ones I wouldn't wish in drinking / cooking water.

Considering the pollutants in the atmosphere and the possible contamination from eves troughs and piping (as well as chemically treated surfaces ), I would treat, boil or adequately filter any rainwater if it was feasible to do so. This is assuming that this water was to be used for human consumption.
