Re: Water purification

The coconut carbon is a necessary evil that causes as many problems as it solves in that its a bit of a bacteria breeding bed

Officially are final microbial filters at work are .2 micron


To be really clean we go 5 micron string filter/ coconut carbon bed/5 micron string filter to remove carbon fines /stuff that does not matter/ ABSOLUTE 5 micron filters/ABSOLUTE.2 micron filters



Of great interest right now is the units like camelbak portable UV unit for camping Treats 80 cycles or 16 gallons with each charge
