Iodine use for water purification

Iodine is one way to treat water in the backcountry and a great choice when weight is a concern. We use Iodine Crystals that can treat up to 2000 gallons of water. One good system for using iodine is as follows. Always have 2 water bottles. One is for the treated (clean) water and the other is where the treating is taking place. The treated bottle needs at least an hour if the water is warm and longer if cold. When it is done, pour it into the clean bottle. This pouring dissipates the iodine vapors and improves the taste of the water. At this point you can add powdered drink mix to flavor the water if desired. Never add it during treatment because the iodine can bind with the drink mix and the water will not get purified. Now you can fill the treatment bottle and add more iodine.
