Do you have an asphalt shingle roof and thought you could not collect rainwater for potable usage? Most roofing material in the Seattle area are asphalt shingle leaving many to think that they could not collect rainwater for potable usage or even use the rainwater from roof top collection for watering vegetables.
RainBank Rainwater Catchment Systems has teamed up with Custom Pure and is now installing deionization, along with other filtration and disinfection, so rooftop collected rainwater from asphalt shingle roofs can be used for potable use.
“We have been researching and sampling raw rainwater from asphalt shingle roofing and have found that rainwater is ideal for deionization and, along with other filtration and UV disinfection, we can produce ultra pure water of laboratory quality”, explains Ken Blair. “This process allows those with this type of roofing material to enjoy the benefits of rainwater collection.”
