PDF Presentation from EPPIC (icanprepare.com) website.  It loads very slowly so be patient.   It is  a good overview but the  internal links do not work.  Some of the information is out of date but most of it is very good.

Water filters are getting better all the time.

Clean water is a world wide problem and because of that water purification and filtration systems are getting better.  Not all of the things said in the previous over is still accurate.

HydroBlu versa Sawyer Mini

Both are low cost but the flow rate is greater for the HydroBlu and used for a group allows more water faster.

Filters come in all types and sizes

This system is being used all over the world in camp situations.  It is moderately expensive and needs to have water (dirty or clean) in the can at all times to keep the filter wet.  So once you start using it you need to keep using it.
