Antone thought of melting snow to use as R/O? it has the advantage of not runnoing over several surcaces to get into the rain but, but you have to collect it yourself. i have melted some and it is ph neutral so not caught up like acid rain :lol:
ill report back on how it goes anyway.

Hi,
Just because water is locked up as snow it does not mean that the water is pure. Polluted water can be frozen just as easily as clean water, so it depends on the origin of the snow and at what altitude it was frozen i.e. what level of TDS or pollutants was present . Depending on these factors the snow can vary in it's quality in the same way that rainwater can.

Cheers,
