    Not 100% sure if it's Giardia or campo.. If Giardia .. Urewera... Been thinking about water purification for a while though, since I found 3 dead swallows in the hut tank, on the last day.....

    Or you could save even more money and just use a couple of drops of common household bleach in your water at almost zero cost.

    Just use an old eye drop bottle. Weights almost nothing too.

    Tried a couple of straws, felt like sucking extra thick old school thickshake...far too much work.. Kinda like the taste of water without chemical..
