You do not need to buy water to avoid potentially local tap water. Bottled water is not necessarily clean water. There might be a concern around buying cheap water, would it be worth the risk??
For the price of less than a cent/litre, a SureAqua product will deliver you hundreds of litres of microbiologically safe drinking water.
You don’t need to compromise on performance versus cost with the SureAqua range.
You get travel insurance, you visit your travel health medical center, purchase a guide and great boots, so doesn’t it make sense to get the protection of one of the world’s best backpacking water filter products – SureAqua products – also offers powerful benefits for the environment.
Part of the backpacking ethos is to tread lightly on the earth and to travel responsibly. But you can’t ignore the health risks of contaminated drinking water.
Chlorine-based tables are compact and extremely effective against multiple sources of polluted water – with two distinct downsides 1/ they taste dreadful, 2/ they are not entirely effective in eradicating waterborne parasites.
Whether you choose an SureAquaStraw, SureAquaBottle+ or an SureAquaStraw+ for your backpacking adventures, these water filters will cleanse up to 500 litres (132 gallons) or 1000 litres (264 gallons),depending on the product you choose, using a 0.2 micron for the SureAquaStraw, therefore capturing bacteria and 0.01 micron for the SureAquaStraw+ and SureAquaBottle, therefore capturing bacteria and viruses, capillary membrane to effectively remove waterborne bacteria, parasites and cysts (oocysts), can be used as a municipal tap water, and freshwater lake and creek water filter.
Backpacking through many wilderness areas you only see how pristine they seem, however, always take an SureAquaCorp product water filter backpacking with you and be sure to use it, as unseen contamination can be present in water sources worldwide.
For example, if you choose to buy an SureAqua Straw, that filters up to 500 liters (132 gallons) this is the rough equivalent of 2,000 250mls bottles it’s easy to see how much money you’ll save with these backpacking water filters, and how you can slash the weight of your backpack gear.
Chances are you buy bottled water as you travel, therefore, these figures may amaze you. It takes around 17 million barrels of oil each year to make 29 billion plastic bottles – and the world consumes far more bottled water than that while only recycling a small percentage of the bottles, meaning more and more raw materials are being used.
It’s estimated with each bottle manufactured, 100 grams of carbon gas is created – and more than 33 million tones are used each year to bottle water. Then add the effect on the environment of transporting billions of cartons of bottled water around the globe.
Should we also get into the pollution caused by discarded bottles, or the unnecessary crowding of our landfills, or the toxic fumes released if the bottles are incinerated?
As an individual, if you consume bottled water regularly, you can reduce your carbon footprint by around 600 kg per year by switching to the pocket-sized SureAquaStraw (500 liters) water filters, or 1200kg when choosing the SureAquaStraw+ (1000 liters) or the SureAquaBottle+ (1000 liters).
Backpacking demands a different way of thinking about your world and how to protect it. SureAqua products is the ideal backpack filter. It takes up virtually no room, and is cheap, quick and easy to use. Why wait?
