For better tasting water:

  • Avoid higher doses of bleach/iodine
  • Use a filter prior to chemical treatment
  • Add flavored drink mix powder (vitamin C products convert chlorine &  iodine to tasteless chloride and iodide)
  • Do not store drinking water in milk jugs… use soda bottles, juice bottles or glass jugs.
