Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

this can be done by making small quantities of filtered and settled water safer to drink by using a chemical disinfectant such as unscented household chlorine bleach. These disinfectants can kill most harmful or disease-causing  viruses and bacteria but are not as effective in controlling more resistant organisms such as the parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
