I used to do a lot of backcountry camping and was very familiar with the options (at the time) available for making safe drinking water. My girlfriend has been urging me to get me to get back into hiking, so I have been doing an inventory of my gear and starting to purchase the things I am lacking.
I went online to shop for water filters, and was surprised that the ultraviolet (UV) light based water purifiers seem to be the most popular option now. I know the TFP consensus on alternative “sanitizers”, including UV, for pools.
I am wondering if anyone has any experience with UV drinking water sanitizers. I guess the need for residual sanitizer is not the same for drinking water in a bottle as is for a pool full of water that is just sitting there all the time.
