Rainwater From The Roof

I would like to let the rain water fall from the roof in the pond, but I am wondering if it will be filtered quick enough in case of dust, especially at the end of a dry season (first rain)? - Benoit Raskin

I can think of one reason that putting rainwater that lands on your roof into your pond would be bad: if your roofing material leached something toxic into the rainwater. If it doesn't leach anything, go right ahead. Maybe let it rain a couple of times before you start putting the rainwater into your pond so that it can wash the dust off of your roof at the end of the dry season.
