I have just put in a simple rain water catch consisting of a simple downpipe filter, mesh pre-filter and 2 1000ltr IBC tanks.
Everything is working great and the filters manage to get rid of any large bits of debris in the water.. The problem I have is that there is a rather large tree above the gutters that constantly sheds leaves, pollen, seads and sap turning my noce rainwater a horrible urine colour.
I have tried a couple of 5 micron 10" filter to try and get it out, they dont work..
Short of cutting the damn tree down does anyone have any ideas of how I can filter my collected water?
