Water Purifiers Explained

 

No matter how clear water in the wilderness may look, there's always a chance it's contaminated with microscopic organisms just waiting to treat you to a vicious bout of diarrhea and vomiting. Luckily, you can thwart those evil organisms' plans with a water purifier. Water purifiers work using a chemical, a filter plus a chemical element, or UV light to kill any bacteria, protozoan, and viruses that might be lurking in the water. Whether you're backpacking in Appalachia or traveling through a third-world country, there is a safe and convenient water purifier option that will work for you.

Water Purifiers:

Water purifiers use either a filter and chemical combo or UV light to kill any contaminants in the water without significantly altering the water's taste. They are expensive, but effective against viruses that filters miss.

Purification Tablets:

Cheap, small, and effective, purification tablets are another way to ensure your water is safe. They noticeably alter the water's taste and require wait time, but are great as a minimalist option or an emergency backup.
