I feel like I would find a hydration bladder extremely useful. Especially so when going on via ferratas or multipitch climbs. But even when doing simple hikes it would allow me to have a sip of water more often.
My problem is, however, that I am extremely picky about the water taste. Even in fresh water I always notice its taste. And I always put extra effort when washing my reusable water bottle.
For this reason, I am afraid that I might not be able to wash a hydration bladder well enough for it not to acquire a specific smell/taste. I have tried drinking from a friend's hydration bladder a couple of times, but I couldn't handle the way water tasted/smelled.
So my question is: if I had a hydration bladder, would I be able to keep it clean enough (without extraordinary effort) for it not to render water undrinkable for me?
