What other precious resource, aside from solar energy of course, literally falls from the sky?  And are you taking full advantage of it?

Here’s how to start using rain water for drinking water in a couple easy steps:

  1. Install a downspout filter on your home’s roof drainage system.  Here is a place that sells them but with a little elbow grease you could easily build one yourself for a fraction of that cost. http://www.rainharvest.com/centrifugal-standpipe-downspout-filter-collector-with-converter-kit.asp.  This will divert grime, insects and bird waste out of your water supply.
  2. Install a rain barrel below the downspout filter.  Make sure you have a spigot and smaller water vessels so that you transfer your water inside.  Again, there are rain barrels sold everywhere but you can fashion one for yourself very easily.
  3. Set up a simple gravity filtration system to clean the water.  Here is a set of plans and some filters: http://getpreparedstuff.ecrater.com/p/13284904/ceramic-water-filter-diy-gravity
  4.  Start enjoying your free, clean water.

Of course if you are really concerned about the quality of your water, there are many other filtering and disinfecting techniques.  But this is an easy way for most people to get started.

So what are you waiting for?  Go out there and get going on yours free water system today…
