What to write?
Here are some things to consider when reviewing water treatment products:
Effectiveness: What does this product claim to treat? If filtering, does it affect clarity? Do you use with another method?
Speed & Efficiency: How long does it take to treat water?
Capacity: Does it treat enough water for you as an individual? How about for a group?
Ease of Use: How hard is it to filter or treat water? Do parts and features work as expected? Consistently?
Features: Any noteworthy features, designs, or technology? Do they live up to expectations?
Construction & Durability: Is it well made? How has it held up over time?
Conditions: Where, when, and how long have you used this gear?
Make it a Killer Review

Consider how the product performed during normal usage. Did it meet manufacturer claims? Fall short? Exceed them? More tips for a killer review »
