    I'm no water expert but this is from the CDC web page.



    "If you don’t have safe bottled water and if boiling is not possible, you often can make water safer to drink by using a disinfectant such as unscented household chlorine bleach or iodine. These can kill most harmful organisms, such as viruses and bacteria, but are not as effective in controlling more resistant organisms such as the parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia."

    There's a campaign on Indiegogo called WaterBean that might be a useful water filtration solution for you. The filters last up to six months and is portable, allowing you to take it from any bottle to bottle. www.indiegogo.com/projects/waterbean

    I just use a water pump I picked up years ago. It's easy enough to use and doesn't give you the odd taste the iodine tablets do. With the bleach, I wouldn't feel safe hiking around with a bottle of bleach, I'd be scared of spilling it on my gear and ruining things.

    I ended up getting a Platypus and combining it with purification tablets.
