Does anyone have tips about which require purification for those streams that flow into the sea of Galilee, Golan? Cows and other animals use water but I guess there's no chemical pollution from factories. The question do I need virus protection or something like the sawyer squeeze sufficient?

I don't use filters so can't give advice. Mandatory even after boiling. There's no shortage in water due to the cows and wild boars and other animals.

That's not true.
Completely unnecessary by boiling after purification.
My question is what a suitable purification.

Assuming no chemical contamination, steripen will do the job, but I don't like to use electronic devices and I prefer the cheaper too squeeze sawyer

There is an excellent series on the BPL also explores the risks (bacteria, viruses, Krypto, etc) and each of the methods. (Needs a subscription

Big SAWYER also don't filter viruses-UV kills all (assuming it works and isn't too murky etc

Glad to learn. If I had to use water boar before them and left them all was boiling after a filter, but it seems to lack experience.

As far as I know, there are no chemical pollution in rivers flowing to the sea of Galilee.

Hey Mikey, I've read the series and recommendation.
Yankele, thanks for input.
Maybe someone can think of a person/organization/authority can consult.

I think you should not use such water in any form, think of swimming water, dead retarded floating up the river for two weeks before coming.

For me it's an absolute prohibition, why take a chance? Cleanse with a device that may not do the job properly? If you were in the area after the war, but now played and here in Israel? Why you?

I'm with Ma. Talk about the Golan Heights. I suppose their site you'll find information to help. Water regulation, why get involved?

I recommend to read the manual Katadyn company (Swiss society, which manufactures various products for purifying water-disinfection tablets to ship desalination systems).

My business has 3 kinds of water cleaners. If you're interested, feel free to contact us and come to experience the products!

Thank you guy and the link. My question is, first of all what kind of infection you can expect on Golan: chemical contamination (for example pesticide of farmers), some viruses or bacteria? Etc ...
Without this information it is difficult to choose appropriate equipment.

It really depends on what area in the Golan Heights.

Southern agricultural region level is hence more likely in spring there will be traces of fertilizers and pesticides, are created as far as contaminated.

In the Centre much better situation because the minority communities and agricultural areas (mainly grazing land and mines), but in the North the level I assume (I didn't check this out) that no donor communities specifically for water quality.

Hey me, thanks for the comment, what you say makes sense. I had thought that what flows and museums less polluted by agriculture or factories, but that's just conjecture.

To AFIX-first hard to call you a name, Hebrew name?

The aplatim back-don't drink the water just place or travel. Don't drink from the stream, not sure what's going on up there. In the aplatim industrial zone there is no chemical contamination, the fear is not fried. Whatever the most purifying without risk.

Ma name's guy. Your answer didn't actually drink from streams that surprised me. I won't argue that, you were there.
But overall no problem as far as drinking from streams if you purify the water in a form suitable for possible infections. Total streams that flow into the sea of Galilee after it is purified and reach our taps and I'm not sure atihor of different nature than the purge in the field can do.
But it is true that the probability remains a small risk. I drive to the far more dangerous than the water purification and personally I'm willing to take the chance to enjoy more of my outings. This is another experience of a trip when you drink the water from the stream and not the author. Some like to use and place trees bushbuddy instead of bring the blowtorch/questions or sleep without tent (manifold if necessary). It's also nice to carry less weight (and less incremental damage to the body) and enjoy more flexibility in choosing the route. HYOH.

I think quite a few people, transformed in apalch but I wasn't there.

Agree with you that the car is much more dangerous than clearing water, but not so connected to a part of the experience, when the process including purge-I realize this is subjective (for me, that is without the tent really connects you to nature).

There are also disadvantages to purification purification takes time and sometimes adds aftertaste (in the case of chlorine tablets for example). In addition, it also requires premeditation (which reliable water sources etc).

I'd be glad if you tell us how you had.

By purification chemicals.-side flavors-and actually sounds kinda sucks and not cheap per liter. I hope better squeeze steripen or sawyer. It seems.

I am very pleased with the squeeze, sawyer bags following with nothing (torn after a few days on the trail) each water bottle with flare standard corresponds to that filter option. Haven't tried it myself but since I met Baker bought 2 bags of Platypus and use gravity filter sawyer squeeze as he's worked fine.

Did you try now with a pint of Panetta and it works fine. In my opinion it is very standard diameter.
In PCT I'd trade about one bottle a week or a little more (I was using a liter bottle and fold it in half, it was the fastest water bottle though she lasts a long time:) I never got that bottle (. Except something big like nesty)

If you use this country too I recommend you buy 2 bags of drinking water of 2 or 4 liters of what you're comfortable with and use that as gravity

If you need to get the filter more than one and a half quart or liter should already be used as gravity, especially the chshsohabim plenty of water as in the country as there is a water source is also where you stop to rest:)drinking bag
