      Great video again!!! excellent job.

      I always have iodine with me (i use the liquid as its multi functional for first aid), and I love the new sawyer mini you get for 20 bucks. the iodine is always with me and the sawyer comes with me on bigger trips.

      I wish we had the springs and topography here like you guys do in the hills.

      Agree another great video.

      If your east of the big muddy or downstream from any fracking you don’t want to drink the water without treating. And if fracking is involved you don’t want to drink anything without a giger counter scan or chemical analysis even if you are at the source. The source may be contaminated miles away from where it bubbles clear and fresh from the rocks. And boiling and iodine don’t work.8)

      Another great vid, Clay.

      I recently picked up a Sawyer mini filter. I’ve been hearing lots of good things about them. An amazingly veratile little filter that only weighs 2oz, that you can throw in your pack without a thought:

      Does it come with the back-flush pump, or do you have to buy that extra?

      Dave –

      Yup, in addition to the filter, it comes with the flush pump, a heavy-duty straw and the squeezable water bag, all for less than a Jackson. 😉
