diy carbon filter for gravity water filter. on 04/20/2012 23:54:37 MDT Print View

I have a diy gravity water filter. I would like to make a carbon filter to remove bad tasting water. Does anyone have a plan to make a carbon filter. How many have carbon filters...are they really necessary?

I added activated carbon to an MSR siltstopper. This has the added benefit of filtering out the silt before it gets to my sawyer inline filter. I've been using this for a couple of years and it has worked well. Water is clean and clear. However, I've been considering trying this out as well
