Rain Water Gift
As I have reported (or is it whined?), I have very high nitrates in my well water.
This forces me to filter water using nitrate removal resins and make deionized (DI) water using an API Tap Water filter.
The other day it was pouring (we're actually way behind on rain this season).
After it had been raining awhile, Abbey and I did a bucket brigade under one of the downspouts and collected nearly 50g of rainwater. I will treat this water much as I do DI water (Seachem Replenish and pH adjuster) and mix with filtered well water for water changes.
I think I'll invest in a couple of rain barrels.
