Water Filters for Giardia
The most popular water filters these days are the
Pur water filters brand. They seem to be a good compromise

Water Filters compared

Water filters that allow small bacteria and very small
viruses to slide through will easily catch all the
giardia. Pur water filters are very good for this.
