Why is a purifier better than a microfilter? A water "filter" generally claims to reduce or eliminate protozoan parasites and bacteria. A filter is adequate for remote wilderness seldom visited by people. A water "purifier" also removes or inactivates viruses and is therefore ideal in any situation.
