A group of Hope College students researching global water issues in 25 countries are tracking what they think could be a worldwide solution to unsafe drinking water.

Hope College has partnered with Florida-based Sawyer Products and Give Clean Water, a California-based nonprofit, to help provide clean water to residents in Fiji.

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
