Posted By: Mike GeorgeHmm, I'm not so dismissive of new products until I have seen them in the flesh and used them.
Posted By: Mike GeorgeI do agree that Lead is best - without a doubt. Sometimes budget dictates otherwise though....
Posted By: Sally MThis is a valid point as I am having rainwater harvesting. From what I have read, I think lead is ok because the water isn't in contact for hours with the lead. I am only planning to use the water for toilets, washing machines and garden. Please, if I have got this wrong, let me know!....I don't want dead plants!
Rainwater is slightly acidic and will dissolve small amounts of lead roof flashings. Assuming you are not going to drink the water, this isn't a problem, although lead gutters and downpipes should be avoided as they may result in lead levels being too high for rainwater to be used on edible crops in the garden.
