  • Rain water collects polution on the way down so it is no better off than tap water at this point. I think either way you are ok.

  • Rain water is natural, faucet water could have chlorine or floride in it. You could test both for Hp levels, and see which matches your needs best.....but rain water is natural...and free..

  • I live in eastern Washington state. (the dry part that would be a desert if they didn't irrigate the orchards and vineyards) There isn't enough rain to even try this. Use regular faucet water, just like I use regular water on my lawn and outside garden. That's what hoses and sprinklers are made for.
