Over the years, I’ve looked at many water treatment methods. Overall, experts agree that boiling water is the best way to purify it. Forget what you’ve heard about needing to boil the water for a particular amount of time. At least near sea level, reaching the 212° F boiling point is all you need. (If you are at the top of the world, however, the boiling point drops so much at people often drink “boiling” water, so check out the required times).
I have had a case of tech lust for the pen-sized Miox Purifier, which turns salt and water into chlorine that is then dumped into the water you want to cleanse. Really cool, but paying more than $100 for something I’m not likely to use very often seems really steep. Especially, when I can get the same chlorine dioxide from a two-bottle product called Pristine ($19.95 CDN and up, direct). It’s made in Canada and sold both online and through outdoors stores.
The traditional chemical water purification method has been iodine tablets in their various incarnations. These which often leave water tasting bad and leaves enough iodine in solution that you shouldn’t drink the water over an extended period. Also, bad tasting water is water nobody drinks, which leads to its own problems. Pristine doesn’t leave any nasty chemicals in the water and the chlorine smell/taste rapid dissipates or can be filtered out with a carbon filter.
Regardless of what chemical method you use, your water should be as free of debris as possible before you purify it. While you can filter water through clean cloth or gauze, a filter bottle may be a better (and more convenient) choice. You can also consider the mechanical water filters often sold to backpackers. Pristine has its own bottle that, like the others I’ve seen, includes a mechanical filter for gunk and a carbon filter to improve the water’s taste and smell.
The important thing to know about water systems that filters only filter while purifiers make water microbiologically safe to drink. Yes, sometimes a filter is enough to make water drinkable, but if there is any chance of bacterial or (especially) viral illness, take a purifier. This applies to all disaster situations and most trips to foreign lands. Also, make certain that you allow enough time (or use the proper filter) to eliminate cryptosporidium, a particularly resistant infectious protozoan.
After Hurricane Katrina, I looked over my emergency pack. It includes a couple of old filters that need to be discarded. I’ll replace these with packages of Pristine and filter bottles. But, that Miox still looks so cool.
