I went hiking in the northern island of Japan- Hokkaido, Daisetsu Mountain Range to be exact. When I was there I boiled the water sometimes straight from the source and other times i used a ceramic filter MSR-
I was with a group and so there were two water filters,one had a small crack in it which after a few days seemed to run all the way down . I tried to always use the one without a crack anyway my question is will this filter kill echinococcosis apparently a problem in Hokkaido from the foxes and the other bacteria and viruses?
Basically, i wamt to be 100 percent safe so if i even get water froma stagnant pond i can feel comfortable about what I am drinking. I have my own water filter a small ceramic filter should i filter the water with that then boil it then let it simmer for ten minutes then let it cool down and pour into your drinking container the next morning? How about iodine and chlorine?
if i do the filter and boli thing i will need another pot the one I have now is only 1 and half liters i will need a bigger one as well which holds 2 liters. Is carrying two titanium cooking pots with lids the best solution?<br><br>Post edited by: textbook, at: 2009/08/31 12:20
