Hello BeeSourcers, another Africa beekeeping question. For our beekeeping project in South Sudan, it isn't always easy to get clean water. We'll be collecting the honey in 5 gallon buckets, even using the drilled/filtered buckets as honey strainers, so cleaning the bucket/strainer and reusing the buckets is important.

I know we can use iodine tablets or MP-1 tablets to purify the water, but I'm worried about affecting the flavor of the honey. I know honey is supposed to be bacteria resistant because of the pH level and water content, but I don't want to mess around here.

Suggestions welcome.
