    For muddy, nasty water there's also THIS.

    I've seen something similar in action — and actually drank the water, which was fantastic — when our friends in Canada used a flocculant they got at MEC on a canoe trip. Glad we had it because in Algonquin Provincial Park there are many piles of moose poop in the water that you can see while paddling the shallows.

    If I were going to someplace like the Grand Canyon I would absolutely take this stuff and a collapsible bucket. Really amazing stuff for silty, turbid water.

    Is this the same as adding alum to water to settle out the turbidity? Take off the clear water, then treat?

    This product looks like 1-step process.

    Actually, with this stuff you don't have to treat further after taking off the clear water.

    I've also heard about alum and am going to give that a try, although locally I really don't need it. I don't mind a few "floaties" in the water as long as I know they're dead.

    If it gets to be too much I strain 'em out with my mosquito head net.
