I’ve been looking at water purification systems in preparation for an upcoming Peru trip. Previously I have only ever used chemical purification. Given that the Peru trip will be 12 days, I wanted something which was lightweight and relatively quick at purifying water. Until recently it was difficult to find a filter that could kill both bacteria, viruses, and protozoa, but that has changed with UV filters such as the SteriPEN.
