Is it possible the rain water collected in the water tanks can be used for drinking? because there are so much things in rainwater harvesting that decide the quality of the water stored in water tanks which can be called safe to drink and if factors like Mosquitoes breeding, Bird and animal droppings and Algae etc are not taken care of it can be hazardous for your health.
