Those are for removing bacteria from otherwise drinkable water. Rainwater should be okay unless your collectors are dirty. Desalination is something very different. And as stated before, hand operated desalinators are available.

(That said, we have a pur filter on our galley faucet.)

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
