I'm already a fan of the Sawyer mini-filter, and of the Lifestraw Go filter - They both come pretty darned close, at 99.9999% - but neither of them claim to remove a full 100% of potentially dangerous water borne organisms.
As a general guide, the higher you are on the hills, the less polluted stream water becomes. But - you just never know what might be in the water you are drinking - I've seen too many instances of dead sheep, & faecal matter near streams, and they are only the things that can be seen. What about all the other stuff that can't be seen? - That's where these tablets come in!
These things work! - They weigh practically nothing and they take up practically no space in the rucksack. - Yes, you have to wait about half an hour after adding them to suspect water, and yes, they do give a slightly "unusual" taste. (The taste isn't by any means unpleasant, and it isn't very strong. - I wouldn't say that it is particularly reminiscent of chlorine - but nevertheless, that slightly "chemical?" taste can be detected when drinking the treated water).
I sometimes carry a small bottle of concentrated blackcurrant fruit drink with me, and decant some of that into each full bottle of treated water. End result - no need to carry great quantities of liquid, the treated water is safe to drink, no "chemical" taste, and blackcurrant flavoured - win-win all round!
By all means, use them in conjunction with a proprietary filter system if you are carrying one, - but even on their own, they give you the peace of mind that whatever might have been in the water source you are using, it has been rendered safe for drinking.
I also carry more expensive Chlorine Dioxide tablets which I use when the water is cloudier, seems riskier, is colder or if I am in a hurry. Chlorine Dioxide is superior to these tablets in those cases.
