    Have never filtered but always treat (with AquaMira) unless it's out of a spigot. I'm an old fart and have done this on the AT, LT, CO Trail, and all around NH. So far, so good.

    "Peak" brand. A product of the Netherlands but I found it in an Asian-African market. I think it's a bit tastier than Nido - which I like also.
