I keep Coghlan's Iodine tablets in case of emergencys and the bottle says
do not store for longer than a year. Better yet, why not use a filter
like the "scout" model that I use, has the ceramic filter and iodine resin
to remove and kill small creatures in the water. I also put an activated
charcoal filter on it for solutions that may be dissolved in the water.
