There are only 1 percent of water in Earth that is drinkable, and that I believe is neither the rain water that you collect on your drum at home, nor the water in the river close to your home. You know, water is the most abundance resource, yet only 1 percent is drinkable. Which mean, if you love to travel around in the nature, drinking the water from the mountain spring is not safe, especially when there is a factory near the mountain.
Well, the problem is irreversible because people keep creating factory to fulfill demands in the market. So there is only one way to keep our body safe from dangerous water when travelling/camping – get yourself a portable filtration system or get something like this LifeStraws gadget to turn any undrinkable water into a drinkable water instantly.
I’ve seen some similar solution in few years back, but this Lifestraws is definitely the best portable water filter. Not only the size is small, user can use it to drink any dirty water without sucking all the dirt, bacteria or bad stuffs found in water.
LifeStraws is capable of removing a minium of 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, minimum of 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, as well as having the capability of reducing water turbidity by filtering particles of approximately 0.2 microns.
Amazing, right? Based on the specification given by the company, each LifeStraws allow user to suck up and effectively filter up to 1000 Liters of contaminated or dirty water. There is no chemicals inside the Lifestraws, no batteries, electronic-type of device, no BPA even it’s plastic, and no moving parts at all. The only downside is that you’ll have to suck it pretty hard, and about 3-5 seconds before you can sip the first drop of clean water.
Check out the video below for the demo:
Another cool thing about LifeStraws is that you don’t have to pay a lot for it. At Amazon, it’s just $24.95 per straws. Since the size is small and portable, you can get few of them with you when camping/hiking if you are a heavy drinker. But who drink more than 1000 Liters of water when camping in the wild?
But it will be a good stuff to stock a lot in case of disaster. When everything is in a mess, clean water is the most sacred thing to have. When there is only dirty water around, this type of Lifestraws water filter is the tool that would save life of many!
