26411[John Muir Trail] Re: Saving Weight on Hydration
- Dec 31, 2012I've been happy with the Potable Aqua PA Plus tablets. The iodine tablet can be a little slow to dissolve in cold water; I fill my bottle then pop a tablet in, then after 5 minutes or so when it's dissolved I shake the bottle to mix it. In 30 minutes your water is purified.
The PA Plus version has a second tablet you can add after this 30 minutes to neutralize the iodine - it dissolves quickly, removes any iodine taste and leaves the water clear.
It's a pretty simple and trouble-free system...
