[pct-l] h2o filters???



There are, of course, some people who are immune to guirdia. What I have
heard is that if you drink from a likely polluted water source you are 10%
likely to get guardia whereas an obviously unpolluted source you are 1% to
get guardia. If you would get guardia, that is.

Several of us don't filter water. Giardia doesn't bother me.
If i suspect bacterial contamination, I use iodine.

Otherwise I just drink it.
