How To Purify Water At Home – Using Rainwater To Run Our Farm!

Purifying your water at home is a great way to ensure your drinking water is free of harmful contaminants and impurities, whether you have a well, city water, or use rainwater. It’s also a good idea when you don’t have access to clean water at home, or when camping or in an emergency.
For us, having access to clean, pure, healthy water was a big concern when we moved to our new farm. Not just for drinking, but for showering, cleaning dishes and yes, even watering the garden. One thing was for sure, it was not going to come from the ground beneath our soil.
On our farm, it is impossible to drill a well due to the fact that most of the lands in Eastern Ohio were strip mined back in the day, leaving the ground water less than desirable. Add in that the area is now heavily under the influence of fracking, and the ground water is more suspect than ever.

Collecting rainwater at the farm. As we built the new farm, we installed metal rain tanks to collect rainwater at all of the farm’s buildings. A single rain can collect us well over 1000 gallons!


A Solution To Clean Water – How To Purify Water At Home


As the old saying goes, where there is a will, there is a way. For us that “way” is collecting what mother nature brings us from the sky. And then, of course, filtering it to be the cleanest water around!

When we built the new barndominium, cabin house and farm buildings, we used metal roofing to top each building. Not only are metal roofs low maintenance, they are perfect for collecting rain water. There is no need to worry about contamination from asphalt shingles. In addition, the metal collects the water fast and easy.

To collect our water, we use a series of large metal tanks attached to the downspouts around the farm. When we were traveling in Texas a few years back, we fell in love with the look and incredible construction of the Texas Metal Tank company’s rainwater tanks.



The tanks are lined with an epoxy lining that provides a protective barrier between the water and the metal. It is FDA approved for potable (drinking) water applications and is ANSI / NSF 61 certified. Even more, they look great anywhere you place them!

Collecting, Storing & Purifying Our Water At Home


A single rain event at the farm can collect a lot of water! For every one thousand square feet of roof space, we can collect 300 gallons of water from just a half-inch of rain. With a total of four tanks on the property, we can usually collect well over 1000 gallons with just a single rain.
