    Ok, so I've been doing some thinking. I've got basic sediment filtration and biological filtration and treatment covered (Doulton ceramic elements in a British Berkefeld urn plus, as belt-and-suspenders, Polar Pure and a method of chlorination). What I DON'T have, though, is a method for...

    Did some testing of this multi-configuration filter. Thought I would share. I plan on taking it out on more trips. I like that you can use it as a straw, in a bottle, in-line with a water bladder and also has a faucet adapter. Anyone else test the sawyer filters? Searched the forum and...

    After some time here - reading, watching society - I came to understand that my simple stash of bottled water was sticking my head in the sand, so to speak. So I did the do - filtration, it ain't hard. I went with the carbon Super Sterasyl - bought 10 total - that gives me over 5 thousand...

    No Berkey because I am in Kalifornia and they won't allow it in the state due to government regulations:mad: I have hundreds of gallons of rainwater stored in food grade containers and would like to have a filter system that I can use in case I need to make this water drinkable. Thoughts...

    I've seen a number of different methods of purifying water, so I thought it would be good to get some feedback on what others think are good methods. Personally, I don't like chemical filtration- it works, but chemicals like chlorine cause cancer. Activated Carbon is pretty good, but I've...
