I have been drinking my rainwater for about a year. I use a standard,
inexpensive whole house pre filter, then a Berkey
Ew%20>  3 gallon ceramic filter. These filters are excellent at removing all
heavy metals, pathogens, bacteria and fungi.
http://www.berkeyfilters.com/watertest.htm They are gravity fed and
stainless steel. I'm super glad I purchased one. 


I'm putting a metal roof on my house in a few years and will keep on using

this set up. I only use the Berkey for drinking and cooking. I use the whole
house filter only for cleaning. It's a system that works well for me.
