    The perplexing aspect mentioned upthread is where do these mineral deposits come from if you have consistently backflushed with distilled water before...

    Seems to me that, at the very least, their instructions for [putting one in / bringing one out] of long term storage are inadequate.

    Maybe that's part of their business model, IDK.

    Yeah, some tablets will be added to my ever-growing bag of essentials. If I don't hate the tablets or drops, maybe they'll be my go-to if the Mini dies, because I'm not 100% sure I'd go filter again...

    I'm not really giving up on canister stoves completely - as noted, I'll mothball one for when/where alcohol stoves aren't allowed. And I do have a Snow Peak fuel canister that probably has no butane...

    The vinegar soak cleared it. So yeah, either the backflushing water labeled distilled wasn't really distilled, or it was just clearing a path of least resistance, a path which probably got narrower...

    To clarify, the Peak 1 stove I have now is not the kind Coleman used to make that has a liquid fuel tank below. It's the kind that screws on to a fuel canister (like isobutane, though in my case it...

    I think you may be on to something here. Even if my water isn't very hard, the backflushing with distilled may not necessarily clean out the entire pathway. It'll clean out the pathway of least...

    At this point I might as well try vinegar too. After an overnight soak, the filtered water is coming out just short of a stream ... rapid fire drops, basically. So I backflushed with distilled water,...

    I'm in a similar boat to OP. I often wear a bandana to help with the dripping sweat and, when applicable, a 360 deg broad brimmed hat to offer shade. But the problem is that you end up not having...

    Sawyer Mini - LTS issue

    Hi,

    I was running short on water this weekend and went to filter with my Sawyer Mini, which had been in long-term storage (LTS), in effect. I rarely use it because I usually just opt for carrying...

    Injinji toe socks/liners are better than nothing, but I found they weren't as good as 3M cushioned tape wrapped around my hot spot toes (the "ring" toe, next to pinky toe, on each foot). And I agree,...
