I am going through this too, and can't wait to be able to use snow instead of buying Distilled water. I had tried rain water from my barrel, but it always has an ammonia read and caused algae problems. (Bird poop on the roof?) If you have a way to catch enough rain water that didn't wash over a dirty large surface, I guess it would be better.
