Since the early 90′s I have always carried some form of water purification when travelling. This stems from nearly dying of Amoebic Dysentery in India. Not long after that adventure I found myself responsible for 18 travellers and myself as I would tour around Lake Victoria in Africa. The route would take us from Kenya, through Tanzania, Uganda and Zaire. The prolific waterborne parasites and diseases where a constant reminder of how dangerous contaminated water can be. Needless to say, I got comfortably paranoid about ensuring myself and those around me had decent drinking water.
