Can we drink rain water?

No. Rain water is full of pollutants and the process of purifying it yourself is more expensive then drinking tap water. Rain water is 'Soft water' so it is good for dishwashers and washing machines.

Look into the possibility for 'Rainwater harvesting' - capturing rain water in a large vessel for uses other then drinking eg flushing the toilet, washing the car, cleaning floors etc. This could reduce your consumption of tap drinking water by over 50%.
