Here we are in the Alleghney National Forest just north of Tidioute Pennylvania at a camp site with a natural spring flowing out of the mountains. We are using a SterPen Classic UV sanitation lamp that kills 99.99 of Viruses, Bacteria, and Protozoa. We drank the water all weekend and were fine. This should a necessity in anyone’s emergency bug out bag kit !
The downside to this model is the requirement of 4 double AA batteries and the fact that it doesn’t filter out any possible preexisting chemicals that might be inherent in the water. A strong caution now with all the “fracking” that is now going on, especially in western Pennsylvania.
Let the SteriPEN Classic ultraviolet purifier with prefilter be your single source for potable water on your next traveling or backpacking adventure.
