Water Purification

- Iodine should be stored in dark bottles.
- Iodine is better than chlorine-based treatments in inactivating Giardia cysts.
- Some people are allergic to or sensitive to iodine.
Key Points
1. Water purification using filters and chemical treatments are the most convenient ways.
2. Look for light, easy-to-use, tough water filters.
3. Chemical water purification may be simpler, and is certainly lighter for backpacking.
4. Use filters and chemical treatments carefully, or they may not work.
