One consideration with Polar Pur and other iodine treatments should be over-exposure to Iodine. Long term consumption of iodine can lead to serious Thyroid problems. As an outdoor guide, I'm counseled to not use iodine treatment because I'd consume too much of it. Many of us long distance hikers treat a significant portion of our water throughout our lives, not just on a single hike.  YMMV
