Do we have to test nitrite and nitrate in rain water to be used later as drinking water?

Nitrate and nitrite are not a risk in rainwater unless the rain is stored in an underground tank that is possibly leaking or the collection surface is dirty with animal or human faecal matter.

If rain is collected from a clean surface and stored in a clean tank there is no risk of nitrate/nitrite contamination.

Before even considering water testing, do a sanitary survey - much cheaper and more useful!
