We'll be off in Jan to sail around for a month coastally and I'm looking at water bottle based purifiers, Last year we found out onboard water supplies running low and using tablets like AquaClean and Aquatabs we found them difficult to manage due to 20L limitations and waiting times.
This year i'd like us to have another form of water cleaning onboard before we take the plunge into watermaker land and i've been looking around at products like lifestraw/water2go/fill2pure and was wondering if anyone here had any first hand experience with this class of purifier. The W2G and F2P both claim pretty good results with viruses and bacteria along with dissolved chemicals and metals, The life straw seems to only focus on bacteria
I'm leaning towards the F2P as it has a stockist in NZ, Is in stainless not plastic, however, the the W2G seems to have more "voodoo" in the filter with the claims around not just being a mechanical filter. Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas/alternatives?
