I've been looking at rainwater catch but because it doesn't rain in the winter . . . I can only afford an IBC tank or two, any idea where I can get water from?
Or should I wait to cut the well loose?
Any ideas or suggestions gratefully accepted.
The well is safe but it's got it's issues - bacteriologic iron, turbidity that sort of thing.
BTW, trying to solve this before I move there with the family.
Not usually that smart.

I've been lurking here about for a while and haven't seen any others with a similar issue so . . .
Thanks for your time.
M.

Howdy M, welcome to permies!

So you have a well but it needs filtration?
