Re: [BackpackGearTest] Temperture affects on Pristine
- From the instructions on the "packaging" page
So... it sounds very similar to iodine based treatments. If the water
is cold or suspect, its going to take longer to be affective.
Also, in reading the directions, I noticed that the A&B solutions
must be "pre-mixed" and allowed to react for 5 minutes before adding
to the water. For those who end up testing this product, I'd like
to know the convenience factor. This seems like it would be a pain
if you are hiking along and need a quick refill. The "let stand"
for 15-30 minutes is tolerable because you can hike while you are
waiting for the process to complete.
Somehow I totally missed that whole page on their site.... Sheesh....
Also yes the time thing does sound like the time factor could get to be a
pain, I guess the testers will find out : )
It might not be too bad for me, as I currently use a SWA Bottle for my
filtering (mainly while on the move, I refill when possible), and I use
iodine for bulk treatments of platy's usually in camp or at nearest water
source to camp. So the time factor wont bother me too much as I can always
take a quick drink from my SWA, unless the water source is highly
questionable then I wont mind the wait - 20 to 35 mins has never killed me
