I want to myog a prefilter to remove floaties from my water before using my steripen. I live in Florida and some of the water sources can be fairly chunky... I have seen where people have used filter bags, cut to size.
My thought is to scoop the water up in a ziploc bag, and pour it into a funnel made of the top half of a disposable water bottle lined with the filter cloth.
My question is should I order a 1 micron bag? Will that clog so fast that it would be unusable? Of course, I want the max filtering as long as it is functional.
Here is a link to the type of bag I was considering: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BP-410-1-Pentek-BP-410-1-10-Bag-Filter-1-micron-rated-/200707080282?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ebb13005a
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
