Alternative Water Supply
Rainwater harvesting provides an alternative water source while conserving water in your community. This method can be used as a main source or as a backup water source.
Is Rainwater Clean?
While rainwater is usually considered clean, it’s important to remember it’s only as clean as its container. Typically, collected rainwater is used for non-drinking purposes like bathing, washing dishes or flushing toilets. Ozone treatment will help eliminate bacteria and other materials from the water before its intended use.
Benefits of Rainwater
Collecting rainwater for personal use can help reduce water bills while also helping the environment. Rainwater harvesting can help reduce erosion and reduce flooding.
Testing the Ozone in the Water
It makes sense to test the ozone in the water. You can do this immediately after ozonating the water. Remember, ozone reverts back to oxygen within 20 to 30 minutes within the water. First, take a SenSafe Ozone Check Strip and test the ozonated water according to the video below. You can order these test strips here. Make sure the reading is between 0.4 and 0.6 ppm.
Testing the Water for Purity
Also, make sure to send a sample of your water after the ozonation process to a laboratory to have it tested. You can find a reputable laboratory by doing an internet search.
Store in shed or another covered area outside
Keep ozone generator above tank so water doesn’t flow back into ozonator
Keep diffuser stone no more than 4 inches deep inside water storage tank
Set timer for 15 minutes every 1 hour or 2 hours
If using a garden timer
Plug garden timer into wall outlet, then plug timer into ozone generator power cord. Set electricity at 150-200 watts. Set timer to turn on every hour or two hours to infuse ozone.
REMEMBER TO TEST!

In case of accidental leakage of ozone, keep the ozone generator in a
well- ventilated area.
Ozone generators emit ozone. Do not inhale ozone.
Ozone generators generate high voltage.
