/ Water Purifiers - SteriPen
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??
A mate's wife has just brought him one back from the states. He said it "looked good" - so I presume he hasn't actually used it yet. Anyway - makes sense to get one out there if you want one as they're cheaper.
Aye, they do look good and if they do what they claim to do then it could possibly be one of the best buys I could ever make.
Is that the Gadget show on channel 5??
How did they test it? was it a scientific test?
Wow, just watched the video thats some confidence he has in the product. Everything Im hearing so far and have read on the net seems to point to it being a fantastic bit of kit.
lol, sounds about right for that prgramme
Think I might opt for one the price seems good though I might wait until Im in Canada and pick one up before the trip.
