Re: Water Filteration

I don't know why people think rain water is safe. Ever heard of acid rain? Seen deforestation on the tops of the Smokies from acid rain? Know that AG's from several eastern states have been suing midwestern states because pollution from old coal powered plants are affecting the air in eastern states? Aware that air pollution from China is strong enough to affect air quality in Los Angeles? Ever park a clean car outside and look at it after an hour of rain has fallen and dried? The atmosphere is heavily polluted and rain water falls through it. Often it is the collection of water molecules around particles that assists precipitation. I would never drink rain water, or let it into my tanks, without filtration.
