http://www.trails.com/video_455_tips-advice-water-filters-hiking.html

“Hi! This is Chris and on behalf of expertvillage.com in this clip we are going to talk about how important hydration is and how to stay hydrated while you are on the trail. Now if you have your standard 3 liter sack like I’m holding in my right hand when this runs out you want to make sure that you are in a area where you could get fresh water. The importance of having fresh water is vital meaning that you may not know tarn or weather the water could be contaminated I’m recommending very highly that you use a water filter. It is a simple device with 2 hoses attached one the hoses you will dip into the water and the other hose you would put directly into your water bag. Like so. This end goes into your water bladder like so, begin pumping this is a rather time consuming process however fresh water is vitally important. Now this would take care of all the bacteria’s and contaminate that you may run into in the wilderness. It would take you about 5-10 minutes to pump out 3 liters at which time you would have fresh safe drinking water to continue along on your trip with.”
