Water Filtration

It goes without saying, and it cannot be stressed enough, just how imperative it is to have water filtration in maintaining your health outdoors. We know that not all water sources are unsafe, but even the most pristine looking sources can actually make you sick. The reason being is that if livestock, wildlife or humans can reach an area, so can contaminants be transmitted through their fecal matter.

So, as more and more of us explore wild places, contamination levels rise. So, why play intestinal roulette when you have so many options for treating your water? Let’s have a look at what water filters and water purifiers can do for our health:

Water filters work by physically straining out protozoan cysts (such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia) and bacteria (such as E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Shigella). These biological pathogens are the main water concerns if you’re traveling in the U.S. and Canada.

Water purifiers also combat viruses, which are too tiny for most filters to effectively catch. If you’re traveling in under developed areas of the world, consider products that also provide protection for viruses (such as hepatitis A, rotavirus and norovirus).
