So Nasa teamed up with Umpqua Research Company URC, and URC developed the Microbial Check Valve MCV, used cartridge to purify Orbiters water supply using iodine in place of chlorine. So far it has beens so successful in Nasa uses it in every shuttle flight. Nasa also used Water Filters to filter their pee so they could drink it later on as shown in the article.
