I think it was called the Travel Well. Had it's own little pump to take river water through a set of carbon filters, through some other stuff and then through iodine. Although it produced fairly small quantities of of drinking water it tasted like p1#s.

Have a read of this thread (http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=CarpGeneral&Number=369456& page=&view=&sb=&o=&fpart=all&vc=1) it should provide everything you need.

When they say that each cartridge does around 400 litres is that about right mate?, as they do sound pukka, but with the amount of punishment my brew kit gets it might get a bit expensive otherwise! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Get yourself a water filtration bag from the army surplus shop, pukka bit of kit, used it many times in the jungle. All you need do afterwards for your safety is to boil the water for at least 2 minutes for your brew, or pop a puritab also from army surplus or camping shop, they do give a funny taste but to counteract this pop in a bit of powdered milk this takes the taste away if wanting to drink the fluid cold. If youve got the cash you can buy a pump/bottle filter from any good camping shop, a bit on the expensive side but will do the filtering a treat. Filter bags are ok though, just hang it from a branch and let the water filter into a container.

i have been useing the MSR Miniworks water filter
they sell it at Cotswald outdoor its about £80
i payd £60 years back
the good thing with this one is you can clean the filter
i still use it now but only on long sessions when needed
over 5 liters,i have NEVER had any ill efect from usein one
to make extra safe you can a iodine then filter it and it
will take out the iodine tast,ive never needed it
