    Ok Im getting some starter cps from a couple people on the forum (thx guys). My problem is i dont have the spare cash for distilled water yet. It just rained here last night and most of this morning. I collected about 3 gals of water from the roof run off. It didnt go though any guttering just right off the roof. The apt.'s I live in have tiled roofes paint black it looks like. So what im asking is do you guys think the water i collected will work for the cp's?

    since you live in california, just make sure it's not polluted badly.

    Yeah everything is high dollar here. Part of the reason the water is so high is they add charges for the bottle. Then when you recycle it you get that back. I moved here from MO about 5 yrs ago. It was like i moved to a different planet.

    The water seems clean and clear. It was raining half the night so i figured that most of the bs was rinsed off the roof.

    Fudog, do you have any place where you can refill jugs with water? I get reverse osmosis water from the store. It's like $1.69 a gallon off the shelf, but only $0.39 for every jug I refill from the purifier in the store. The rainwater should be OK, but you may need to buy water eventually, and $2 a gallon is highway robbery.
    JustLikeAPill makes a good point - watch out for acid rain and stuff.
    Best luck,
