comment What is the safest way to purify water?
+1 Ben for mentioning steripens. However, re: "UV treatment (steripen) also kills all types of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts)." UV treatment does not actually kill waterborne pathogens; it sterilizes them, thus rendering them incapable of reproducing once they've been ingested. It has even been suggested that ingesting the sterilized microorganisms may improve one's immunity to them, much like a vaccination.
