Still no internet.
We got up at 5 am again. Water still dirty. Kevin and I have been brainstorming on how to solve the problem. We have 2 large tanks up on the hillside and the tanks are fed by water coming out of the side of the mountain. A bit like springs. It's clean, fresh water, but no matter how clean and fresh it is, there's always a certain amount of sediment that flows in the tank with the water. The problem is that the sediment isn't settling to the bottom of the tank. It is simply being fed down the pipe with the rushing water. We went up to have a look at the tanks to check out what was happening. Kevin thinks that if we simply tilt the tanks up slightly, the sediment will settle to the bottom and only the water will come through the pipe. Physics was never my strong suit, but it seems logical to me and worth trying. We'll talk to Martin and Nacho on Monday to see what they think.
