On our block we have water pumped straight out of the Murray. It is milky brownish. We have had a sample of it in a large jar for 2 weeks. It has not settled out at all. We are planning on using this water in the loo and laundry. The loo would be fine but it may not be so good for the clothes. Has anyone had any experience with carbon filters or something that will remove the milkiness? We had been looking at the type of filter that has a very fine steel mesh to filter water, but decided that because no particles settled out those filters probably would not do anything.
