Zipped-Tight Water Safety

Use ziplock baggies with your water purifiers for extra safety.

As if plastic bags didn't have enough uses, here's another really important one: to bag the outlet hose of your water filter. Once you've finished pumping, pull the hose and nozzle off your filter and stuff them into a zipper-lock bag to prevent cross-contamination from the intake hose.
