Clean water on the go with portable water filters
- Sunday, 20 December 2015 15:11
Whether it’s technology or simple things like food and water, portability has become a crucial element in our modern lives. We want our things to be with us at all times, but from all the things we actually need, water is certainly the most indispensable. But what if we can’t carry water with us to certain places and the water available in the places we travel to is not suitable for drinking? Water filter bottles were created with this in mind – to offer an all-encompassing solution to those who need to rely on outdoor waters to keep themselves hydrated.
But how do these portable water filtration systems work? Each manufacturer and brand has its own method of effectively filtering water, but usually a water filtration system is fitted in the bottleneck or lid of these bottles and water is filtered either as it is consumed or when it is poured into the bottle.

Why use filtered water for cooking
- Saturday, 14 February 2015 20:00
There is no denying that filtered water provides you with a better tasting, and better smelling water for drinking. By removing unnecessary chemicals, microscopic metals, and potential bacterial contaminants, you’ll have water that is much more pleasing for the taste buds, and in addition is the healthier option for you and your family. While unfiltered water is generally free of the majority of the pathogenic microorganisms that can result in serious illness, it is not out of the realms of possibility for some problems to linger.
With improved taste and health in mind, it is an easy transition to see how using filtered water for cooking can provide immense benefits.
The public water supply is typically rid of the majority of waterborne contaminants with the addition of chlorine. Considered to be largely safe for human consumption, it is still pertinent to consider the negative impact that large amounts of chlorine can have on your health, and on the health of each member of your family. When unfiltered water is used in cooking, the chlorine can potentially impact the taste and quality of the food and drinks that you prepare. Chlorine is definitely not the only concern, as fluoride and other chemical byproducts are also often present. Metals and contaminants from underground pipes and your plumbing system can also be present in the water coming from your taps.

Not only does bottled water create excessive waste, but it can cost you a small fortune over time. Yet some people find it incredibly difficult to give up this portable, easily purchased, calorie free and what appears to be a healthy thirst quencher. The misconception that bottled water is purer and healthier is the result of some crafty marketing, when in fact you should be questioning what is truly inside that plastic bottle. It is time to take back the tap and discover the many benefits that pure filtered water has to offer you and your family.
Most people are unaware that almost half of the bottled water sold worldwide, even by some of the most well known brands, comes from a municipal tap water supply. Bottled water from any source, has very few restrictions and regulations and it can be chemically altered and/or contain harmful contaminants and impurities that can be hazardous to your health. The only way to ensure that you are consuming safe and truly pure water is to have a quality water filtration system in your home.

How to store filtered water?

Clean and pure water is a top priority in an emergency situation. A person can go up to three weeks without food, but only three days without water. In an emergency situation, water is essential to human survival. Having an in-home water filtration system is a wonderful luxury to enjoy on a daily basis, but can also help you create and prepare clean filtered water just in case disaster strikes.
How Much is Enough?
Think about how many times you use water on a daily basis. An average person consumes at least 2 liters of water every day. There are many factors such as, age, temperature, and altitude that can affect an individual’s water intake needs. And don’t forget your pets; they need water to survive too. Every day your body looses water, through exercise, urinating, and sweating and you need to replace these fluids to maintain proper hydration. It is recommended that you have 4 liters of water per person/animal in your family, just to stay properly hydrated. However, it is often that most people do not think of using water for cooking, washing yourself, cleaning dishes, or your clothes. These are things to take into consideration when determining the amount of water you need to store. That recommended amount per person has just gone up to eight liters per person per day and it is recommended to have a minimum two weeks storage supply.
