We have come to a vacation home on a remote destination for a few months. We notice that when we use the water for bathing it leaves our skin dry and feeling like there was some dust in water that's now left over on our skin.
This is noticeably damaging for hair as it is causing considerable hair fall to make us worried, specially for our kid. Our hair feels like bristles of a brush.
When you inspect the water tank or a bucket full of that water you can't really tell if its dirty, it doesn't smell either and looks clean but I'm absolutely sure its not as clean as ordinary tap water usually is (for bathroom use), obviously we don't drink it.
Is there any DIY technique that we can use to make that mud/sand in that water settle down in the tank so it doesn't get picked up by the motor when water is pumped to the rooftop tank?
I know that the right thing to do here would be to get a water filter installed but this is not our home and we are living here temporarily on a vacation and getting that filter is not an option. Maybe we could use some spot filter that goes on the shower cap at the very least?
People here say that this water is dug from underground wells but is not cleaned enough, but they don't seem to care much about it.
