I either don't bother to filter.. Depending on location and the state of the water. Or I use a Milbank bag and boil the filtered water afterwards....


Hi John

thats a great idea, i think im going to buy me a milbank bag myself

cheers for the tip

Hi Terry
I have a bottle with a 1 micron filter followed by a carbon filter then through iodine. You have to squeeze the bottle and suck like heck to get the water through which does stop me guzzling it down. I usually take (and use)it in and around farming areas which are higher risk than in the bush. In the bush I usually walk downstream for a couple of hundred metres, or a long rapid or at least 3 bends in a stream checking for any contaminants and then find a slow moving or still eddy and fill my dring bottle just under the surface. Giardia is heave and sinks to the bottom in very slow moving water. I have never had the misfortune to catch anything yet although I have been out with others who have. On two occasions where the water was suspect and I the trip was many days, I had a boil up first. I would have to add that I live in Gisborne and our back country is pretty isolated and not pressed hard by trampers or hunters.
