Topic - Water Purifiers - SteriPen

Alan M - on 24 Jun 2008
Need to purchase a water Purifier for cimbing and kayaking trips to Canada and South East Asia.

Anyone used the STERI PEN??

I usually filter and treat and if really worried I have always Filtered (if needed) boiled on a rolling boil and then treated for added protection.

For my next Kayak and Canoe trip I will be in Canada (Algonquin) water will be taken from lakes. My Canadian friends say that they usually just filter the water direct from the lake to the bottle and drink without treating. Its never caused them any harm but they live in the area so have probably built up a resistance to the bugs.

Anyone got any advice on the SteriPen??
