Ecuador - Tap Water Question

I'll be traveling by motorcycle for about a week in Ecuador. I'm bringing a 3L CamelBak hydration pack.

Would tap water be safe to drink if treated with Katadyn Micropur tablets?

Thanks.

Yes, but we prefer to use a steripen with tabs for backup.

I've been told that water in the Andes is pretty good although high mineral content can cause problems.

Bottled water is very cheap, personally I would stick to that.

Thanks. Bottled water was easy to find, even while way up in small mountain villages.
