    Iowa & waterfilters

    While shopping on-line for a waterfilter for backpacking equipment, I came upon this caveat - "PLEASE NOTE: If you live in the state of Iowa, we are unable to sell you any water purification system due to Iowa Department of Public Health Restrictions. We apologize for any inconvenience."

    </B>This is one time I'm glad I don't live in Iowa. Does anyone know the genesis of this restriction?

    Re: Iowa & waterfilters

    BenE- perhaps it has to do with the filter not being able to handle some of the crap in Iowa surface waters and the state not wanting lawsuits from people who use purifiers thinking they'll be ok if they drink filtered Cedar River water downstream of Waterloo? Not sure how good those filters are at getting out nitrates and lorsban.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: Iowa & waterfilters

    For what it's worth I wouldn't even buy a water filter. I do a lot of hiking and personally will never buy one again. I hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine last summer and never used a water filter. I would STRONGLY recommend this stuff.... Aqua Mira
    It is way lighter than a filter, takes less time, and you can't even taste it. The US hasn't declared that it will kill all water born bacterias and what not, but I used it for 4 months straight, every dayv at hundreds of different springs, streams, rivers, and puddles and NEVER got sick. Just thought you might be interested.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    It's the Nitrates. Not the shoes.
