    Pond water for showering and brushing teeth

    I know this has nothing to do with pools but it does have to do with a pond and water treatment so I thought I would ask here. I am going to the deer lease this weekend and most likely our water supply is still broken so we plan to pump water out of the pond which is fed from a well so the water is clean before the pond. How should I chemically treat the water before pumping it into the house for showering and brushing teeth? I will be using a 250 gallon tank. I assume I should add some bleach to the water to reach 4 ppm which is only 2.1 oz per the pool calculator. Anything else I should add? I will have no way to circulate the water. It will mix well on the drive from the pond to the house but no circulation or filtering.

    Research giardia before putting any natural water in your mouth.

    Chlorine isn't the best choice for treatment.
