Re: taste
I see. Yeah, if you don't mind the wait time of up to a couple of hours (4 hours max per company instruction) -- then chlorine dioxide tablets really are pretty darn hard to beat in term of ...

Re: yeah know
How much do you care about water taste? If that's important or your water source tastes foul -- the Sawyer does not have a carbon/charcoal core to "sweeten" the water like some other...
