Read about the use of betadine as a water disinfectant here.
In these kits we use betadine as a pre-treatment (3 drops per 20 oz. bottle) for the Berkey Sport bottles. The betadine kills bacteria (making it a good first aid item as well) and keeps your bottle cleaner and the filter removes the iodine taste.
