Families who have travelled overseas, especially with young children, to any of the countries subject to warnings ‘not to drink the water’ will know how difficult it can be to continually be reminding them not to drink water from a tap or even from a bottle you have not checked and OK’d first. What fun in your children’s eyes if everyone has their own personal water filter.
Each child can have their very own AquaSafeCorp water filter product, colorfully labeled with their name, will make your job of keeping your children healthy so much easier.
There are a few problems with purchasing bottled drinking water in certain countries. It is fairly common practice to simply refill used water bottles with local tap water, so always check the seal on the bottle and the best-before date and ask for the bottle to be opened in your presence.
Secondly, the water may be freshly bottled and sealed but from local water supplies, without the use of an aqua water filter, and is anything but healthy drinking water. Or thirdly, the water may have been bottled some time ago, have travelled half way round the world in hot conditions and stood on a shelf waiting for you to purchase.
The World Health Organization (WHO), as part of their warnings on travel health risks, advises: “… some micro-organisms, which are normally of little or no public health significance, may grow to higher levels in bottled waters… the public health significance of this remains little understood, especially for vulnerable individuals, such as infants and children, pregnant women, immuno-compromised individuals and the elderly.” The report goes on to advise bottled water be boiled for 1-minute before infant consumption.
It needs to be understood there are a number of types of water purification straws.
The ‘chemical-based’ water filters using a carbon or iodine method for filtered water carry certain health risks for pregnant women, children, and those with thyroid disorders. As the filtration is 15 microns, these water filter straws struggle to filter out parasites and cysts.
In certain cases of contamination due to chemicals or viruses, it will be necessary to use a drinking water disinfecting tablet. These water treatment tablets leave a notoriously foul after-taste in the water – difficult enough for adults to consume, let alone children.
The AquaSafeStraw water purifier straw, based on a chemical-free, ultra-fine 0.2 micron filter, AquaSafeStraw+ and AquSafeBottle+ filters to 0.01 micron and are completely safe for everyone, any time. The AquaSafeStraw reusable filters provide up to 500 liters (132 gallons) and the AquaSafeStraw+ and AquaSafeBottle+ provides 1,000 liters (264 gallons) of clean drinking water from a municipal water source and safely filter out Giardia and Cryptosporidium, e-coli, and other bacteria.
AquaSafeCorp products are so easy for families to use – giving instant instant filtration.
