    I have also heard of using bluing. People put a drop or two to keep from getting Geardia(don't know how to spell it)especially good for outside dogs in hot weather and after rain. Or some bleach in water too works great. I use it all the time. Good idea to keep a check on stuff. What a Face

    How to deal with contaminated Water

    RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH CONTAMINATED WATER



    If water contamination is suspected or known to have occurred, the water should be purified. There are three basic procedures for purifying water:

    · Boiling

    · Purification tablets

    · Bleach purification



    Boiling

    Boiling is the safest method of purifying water. Bring water to a rolling boil for 10 minutes, keeping in mind that some water will evaporate. To improve taste, pour from one container to another several times.

    Purification tablets

    These tablets are available at most sporting goods and drug stores. Follow direction on the package. Usually one tablet is enough for one quart of water. For cloudy water double the dose.

    Bleach purification

    Liquid household bleach can also be used if the label lists sodium hypochlorite as the only active ingredient and there is no perfume (like lemon scent) in the bottle. Add bleach according to the table below stir and let stand for 30 minutes. If the water does not taste and smell of chlorine after 30 minutes add another dose and let stand for another 15minutes. (do not use this I waterbeds)
