Good day folks Rod from My Water Filter here today and thanks for dropping by the Water Tank page and what we're gonna do here now is have a look at the best way to create the best rainwater you can from your own water supply okay. With rainwater, you do have choices okay. So rainwater's in the tank. The issues with rainwater is generally bugs grow in the water, the alkalinity the pH level of the water rainwater is generally acidic, okay, so we've got to nail those and the best way to do it is basically a filter. Now on the page below you'll see that you can get a 20 inch Big Blue 4.5 inch water filter in a twin two housings, generally get a pleated and a bacteriostatic cartridge in there point five micron.
Now that's gonna stop the bugs and the sediments and debris in the water and it will also track the eggs from those bugs. But it won't stop the bacteria, bacteria propaganda are up zero point two so it's going to do a good job, with the tanks clean ,you possibly get away with that sort of filtration. If your tanks full of leaves and pretty dirty and mucky, then it's gonna be creating bacteria and you really want to step up and go to the next level, okay. So the next level is going to be a very similar type of water filter, but you need the UV on there as well, okay. So it's the big whole house 20 inch by 4.5 inch twin and there's a couple of ranges. There's the high pressure which may basically means if you've got pressure pump, good pressure pump, just go for the normal high pressure twin MWF rain water system and that has a good block of carbon in the second cartridge all right, that's what that system is about. If you haven't got the good pressure pump, or if you're on gravity, then take a look at the low pressure system okay. Still with a good pleated that system at the front but with a lesser skinnier cartridge in the second position there. So you've still got a good water flow, flowing through that system that filters water, water filtered down to five micron goes through the UV, bacteria ,viruses everything sterilized and dead. And then you got the water flowing into your home, you'll have a house full of beautiful filtered rainwater, okay. Also, you'll see that we've got the cover.
So we got the twin UV with the cover , the new HPF high performance filtration UV system. It's got the nice big beautiful cream cover on it. You can lock that down on the side of the house, to keep the weather out. Keep everything out and just keep everything nice and neat and tidy and clean and locked away and that's an absolute beauty. All right. None of those systems are gonna help you with the pH level, but they'll definitely filter the water out for you, okay. If you don't want to use any filtration, then take a look at the HydroSil. There's dosing rates and everything on the page. So if you've got bugs growing in your your tank or they've out of control, throw in the HydroSil. Make sure it's mixed at the right rate. You can use the HydroSil. You still perfectly good for drinking, plants everything like that no problem at all. Another thing quick one on rainwater is basically, rainwater is acidic, okay and it will eat out copper pipe. So if you can get there and elevate the pH of your water that will stop it.
So what you want to be looking for is in the bathroom, you have a white vanity basin. If you see blue-green staining on there a blue-green staining and a toilet or the spa or the bath, that blue-green staining is generally copper. The acidic rainwater eating at the copper pipe and that's where you're seeing it. If you do nothing about it, you'll find that eventually that copper pipe will start spurting holes through it, it will just get eaten away in time. So if you have got acidic water from rainwater you'll wanna have a look at that, the pH Elevation vessels are a good way to go. If you've got a concrete tank the lime normally leaches out the walls of a concrete tank. It's enough to elevate the acidic rainwater up to neutral around the 7 mark and you won't have any pH elevation issues there. But if you haven't got a concrete tank. Fiberglass, Aquaplate, Plastic lined, plastic you name it, they've got no lime in them , there's no interaction with the water. You got acidic water coming out of the sky, acidic water falling into your tank , it will be acidic when it comes out and it will slowly eat away at copper pipe etc. Okay.
There is a range of Point-of-use water filters below. Some of them are UV, all right. So you can get a UV sterilizer on a water filter to go under the sink in the kitchen. Now , they work don't let me talk you out of it. UV's under the sink , work. But I have issues with them in a sense that they've always got electricity on, there's always electricity under the sink. There is heat in one. So the UV housings get quite hot. And when you leave it for a period of time. You go to get a drink out of your water tap and the water is being heated up by the hot UV housing and the globe inside. So UV's under the sink are generally gonna give you hot water, all right. You don't really want it but you gonna get hot water. And if the power goes off you got no disinfection. I would much prefer people would use a Ceramic or even an Aragon filter under their sink. If they do that it's filtered right there at the point of use and they good to go. The other thing you can do with a Point-of-use water filter is to elevate the pH. You don't wanna be drinking acidic rainwater, all right. The best thing you can do is elevate the pH by adding some mineral. Seven pH for water is Gold. That's what we want. So with the Point-of-use water filter you can elevate the pH as well. Okay.
With rainwater , so all of those systems are gonna work a treat. So just water is in the tank and we treating it, drinking it, using it no worries at all. If you wanna create the best water you can, once again it comes back to the structure of the water, okay. So this is no joke. A Grander Rod, okay , a Grander Rod and you hang it in the water tank. That Grander Rod is constantly emitting a frequency. It opens the molecule structure of the water , it creates live water , it makes the available oxygen there and then the bacteria hop onto that. The bad bacteria will be deteriorating while the good bacteria continue to thrive. It will slowly turn around. You'll build a whole ecological system there in your tank. Okay. So we're hanging a Grander Rod in the tank. You don't get this big heavy build-up. Obviously a first flush straight off the shed , straight off the roof. A first flush so the leaves can blow or fall through and the water's taken over the tank. That's the vital part of keeping a water tank clean. Trees are a bit of an issue. So clean gutters and a first flush. Drop the water into the tank.
A Grander Rod hanging in the tank. Once that water comes out it won't have any bacteria after its been there for some time because it will just create it's own life and it'll have the good bacteria is in there that us human beings require. Water flowing into your house from there. I'd have a Point-of-use drinking water system inside at the kitchen sink or wherever you gonna use it. And maybe even a big sediment filter outside just to hold any sediments and debris back. Grander water after you have filtered it is the only way to go. Structured water for human beings. It might be rainwater but I promise you, I drink rainwater myself constantly. That's all I drink nowadays. But that rainwater still goes onto a Grander Board and then I'll treat and drink my bottles from there. So, I hope that helps. Good luck to ya. And give us a yell if we can help in any way. Just give us a ring. Nothings a problem here. So happy to help and hear from you for anything at all. Have a good day. Good luck.
