unless you plan to go far away from civilisation, there's no need to bring purification chemicals. In fact, sticking to bottled water whenever you can is much preferable to purifying your own.

That said, dependable purification chemicals (mostly chlorine-based) are on sale in Latin America as well, so you can always buy them there.

you may try a Marine Shop,the sailors use it to keep the water good in the tanks.

Im from Singapore, and if you really need a water purifier soon but cant find one in Chicago,

you can try ordering from Camperscorner in Singapore.
Try googling and you will get the results.

They have one of the good water purifier systems around, from MSR. I have seen how it works, and it actually pumps clean water directly into your Nalgene bottles. This water purifier system actually uses the charcoal system topurify the water, so its pretty cool.

Check it out.
