When traveling, on a hiking trip or plain away from home, a clean and secure source of pure water becomes a luxury. Water is the most common source of infection when traveling. It is of utmost importance to ensure that every drop one drinks is pure and germ free.
Portable water purification devices are a means to ensure this. Also known as point-of-use water treatment systems, these are self contained units that can be used by anyone to obtain clean drinking water from impure and untreated sources. The main idea here is to convert unchlorinated water potable.
Many commercial portable water purification systems are available in the market. These can be taken along on trekking or hiking camps, or for travel in remote areas with high levels of water pollution. They can also be used for treating safe municipal water by removing the chlorine and getting rid of bad taste, heavy metals like lead and mercury, and odors.
