Water treatment equipment

Mechanical filtration, iodine treatment and activated-carbon filtration require equipment for the purpose, but devices are available which combine methods. The selection of suitable, portable water treatment equipment will depend upon many things, but the following appear of highest relevance:

  • weight and filtering capacity
  • presence of both activated-carbon filtration and iodine-based treatment
  • filter life and availability of replacements
  • ease of use.

Most outdoor people would add price, which should consider both initial purchase, and the cost and frequency of ongoing filter replacement.
