Im looking into rain water storgage. The main thing is keeping it away from sunlight. You can get a huge container to bury and have all your drainpipes run into it through some good filters.

Then have a hand pump up to the loft another tank and a gravity feed to the taps and rest of the house.

You would have to boil or at least filter before drinking, but its worth doing that with mains water these days especially in London.

Also I was reading in MoneyWeek the other day about the changes coming in with sola panels.

Moneyweek said the government will allow the first grand a year tax free of what you sell back to the grid.

Be great to have enough sola panels to provide for your own house and a grand a year tax free back to the grid.
