It's estimated far more people become sick through drinking contaminated water than are ever recorded. It's usually only in cases of outbreak that exact numbers are recorded, whereas individuals may become sick with gastro without it being traced back to water contamination. The hygienic treatment and handling of water is as important as the handling of food.
Around the world, different bodies determine what is regarded as healthy drinking water standards. For example, in the U.S.A. water purification treatment is under the umbrella of the United States Department of Natural Resources, and in Australia it's the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council in collaboration with the National Health and Medical Research Council who lay down dam and river water treatment, and water pollution treatment guidelines to ensure healthy water ways and high-quality tap water.
These bodies vary from country to country, however, in some countries, those responsible for the water treatment systems are underfunded and under resourced and are struggling to establish an adequate drinking water purification system and ensure even a basic level of healthy drinking water.
Naturally that water filtration unit you have on your bench or under the sink to purify your domestic tap water is not portable, however, a portable drinking water treatment filter has been developed to go with you anywhere.
With a filtration size of 0.2 microns for the AquaSafeStraw micro fine membrane and AquaSafeStraw+ and AquaSafeBottle+ filtration size of 0.01 micron, water treatment is the leading portable water treatment filter, but why does it come out ahead of the other water treatment options such as carbon block filters, boiled water,and water treatment chemicals?
Activated carbon is ineffective against e-coli and pseudomonas, chorine not only smells and tastes unpleasant but is also ineffective against harmful parasites including Cryptosporidium and Giardia, it certainly isn't always convenient to pull out your camp stove and start boiling water, and many portable filter straws on the market use a filtration size of 1-5 microns, too large to filter out most bacteria.
AquaSafeStraw filters out 99.9999% of all harmful bacteria, e-coli, and staphylococcus, is totally effective in removing parasitic cysts, has no unpleasant taste or smell, is re-usable for filtering up to 500 liters (132 gallons), and being chemical-free is 100% safe for long-term use by everyone.
AquaSafeStraw+ and AquaSafeBottle+ filters out 99.999999% of all harmful bacteria, viruses e-coli, and staphylococcus, is totally effective in removing parasitic cysts, has no unpleasant taste or smell, is re-usable for filtering up to 1000 liters (264 gallons), and being chemical-free is 100% safe for long-term use by everyone.
While water treatment tablets may still be needed to cleanse viruses and chemical contamination, AquaSafeCorp product range provides another vital level of security filtering out microbes untouched by water treatment chlorine or iodine, giving you the purest possible drinking water via a simple and compact, on-the-go, potable water treatment.
AquaSafeStraw, AquaSafeStraw+ and the AquaSafeBottle+ is the ideal, portable water treatment that's also great for use in your own home.
