Factors to consider in buying products best suited for water disinfection:

  • SteriPENS and chemical purifiers are less effective when your water has a lot of suspended solids.
  • Chemical purifiers take longer to work in very cold water and chlorine dioxide takes a full 4 hours to kill a hardy protozoa named cryptosporidium.
  • Boiling requires that you carry extra fuel, but works the best with snow.
  • Iodine tablets don’t kill cryptosporidium.
  • Filters that use activated carbon don’t remove viruses.
  • Pump based filters and purifiers may be heavy to carry and are prone to cross-contamination.
  • Inline or gravity filters can be slow and require that you carry extra water, hosing and reservoirs.
  • Most methods, except a First Need purifier, don’t remove industrial pollutants or fertilizers
  • MyBottle Purifier kills or filters bacteria, viruses and parasites
