Episode 48: Do I Drink The Water?

On this episode we discuss water filtration vs water purification and what is best for you. So, what really is the difference between a backpacking water filter and a backpacking water purifier? AND why might you opt for buying one over another? No matter whether you are backpacking or a traveling in a RV, clean water is super important.

Topics we talk about on this Podcast:

  • Don’t drink the water if green ooze is present
  • 95% of US creeks, streams, lakes and rivers are ok to Filter Water
  • Some people are allergic to Iodine
  • Dogs can get Giardia

Water Filtration we use on the trail and we recommend for backpacking:

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter

Sawyer 3 way inline Filter – Very easy to make your own gravity system

Top Pick for International Travel

MSR Guardian Purifier
