In the battle against waterborne pathogens there are a number of weapons. The vast array of filters and iodine drops all work well to make dangerous water safe to drink.
There is one method that is rarely used. Distillation. Not only can distillation help with cleaning water it can also remove salt from ocean water.
The author has created a nice simple distiller that can be made easily. This option to distill the water you find allows you to get the cleanest water possible in a survival situation. Because we don’t have access to a distillery and we think they are too hard to build we often neglect the possibility of distilling our water. Don’t forget that you can distill other things that will help you with the woes of survival as well.
