My wife is teaching a public health class with an MD that does disaster work all over the globe- she is into those UV ones. I know zero about them myself...

They are supposed to be top notch (as long as you buy from a reputable company with a good track record) Only problem is they require batteries, which require electricity to recharge. Yes I know you can us non rechargeable batteries, but that might get real expensive.

On the other hand I have seen some that has a handle you crank to supply the power for the bulb to do it's thing. Then again, for that to work, you need real clear water to start with.

So pre-filter the water and use the Steri-pen for UV treatment. I have the crank model myself, though I have never needed to use it ....yet.

That's what I thought as well Tom. Got a source for the crank model. My battery powered bit the big one.

I think I got mine off of eBay, but I believe Emergency Essentials also sells them.

OK, Backpack type pump water filters. What Should I get? Remember, backpack equals light weight. ALL suggestions are good for research.

I recommend a good QUALITY filter such as the Katadyn pocket or combi filter.
