I'd want to run it through something like a whole house filter a lot of us use for brewing water from the tap.

Well where I live we drink well water. Some people have shallow wells that are less than 50 ft deep and the ohio epa and health department has determined the water safe to drink. Yes ground water running through the earth is somewhat filtered. However shallow wells produce water that is very reminiscent of the surface water. I think everyone is over reacting to drinking rain water. Damn city folk. The farmers around here love you guys you have made them rich with all this fake organic sh**.

In the documentary "how beer saved the world", they brew beer with water from a duck pound that was riddled with potentially fatal bacteria. Some people liked the beer, none who drank it got sick or could guess the source of the water.

That's pretty much like how they figured out what typhoid was in London. They realised that folk working in the local brewery and those drinking beer and nothing but, weren't dying. That's because they were boiling the Sh1t out of everything bad in the water. Yet those drinking the local water were dropping every other second. Capture the rain water. Boil the sh1t out of it. As long as it isn't nuclear, you are fine. Anybody says other wise, well, I worry for them and how they passed science. As long as it isn't nuclear, and the fact that boiling kills typhoid (which is mostly caused by human and animal waste) and pretty much everything else known to this planet outside of the human body, then you are ok.

Post script. I cannot believe this ADULT site censors swearing between adults.
