    I catch rain water in a cut-off gallon jug, then I add it into the distilled water through a strainer.

    I'm with Seedjar...many grocery stores now have water filtering machines so you can Jug Your Own. Here, if you use their jug, its 99 cents...if you bring your own its 39-cents. Not bad if you can get 10 gallons of pure RO water for only $3.90. If you don't have a ton of plants, that can last a long time.

    I use both collected rainwater and store RO. When my rain barrel runs dry I use the store bought. Distilled cost too much.

    I also bought some fiberglass screening from Lowes (which is cheap and really useful). I use it both over my rain barrel and I fold a piece up a couple of times, put it in a funnel which I put in a jug...and I pour my rain water into the jugs. The screening helps filter out some of the crap that can collect in water outside...leaves, dirt, bugs, etcs. So I end up with pretty clear, pure water (except at pollen time).
