Whether camping in the Adirondacks, thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, kayaking along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, or participating in any other outdoor activity, it's important to remember your water needs. It's almost impossible to carry enough water needed for an entire trip, so being equipped to treat any available source water is necessary when planning to spend extended time in the wilderness.
PURINIZE® is a small, lightweight, non-toxic water purifier proven to purify even the worst backcountry water sources without imparting an unpleasant aftertaste or odor. So, pack PURINIZE® as your primary method of water purification as well as a backup treatment system - filters can break, and batteries eventually die. It's always best to have a secondary option in the event of an emergency. PURINIZE® offers extra security with barely any additional weight.
Imagine you're on vacation or an important business trip. What's one of the last things on your mind? Getting sick with diarrhea. But, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 20%-50% of international travelers, an estimated 10 million persons, develop diarrhea each year. It's called Traveler's Diarrhea (TD), and it's the most common illness among travelers. TD often comes from drinking water contaminated with fecal matter; E.coli accounts for around 80% of the cases. Though TD isn't typically life-threatening, it can certainly ruin a trip, fast.
So, when planning to visit developing or tropical countries, or wilderness areas in any country, even the United States, a small, easy to use water purifier like PURINIZE® is a must-have to protect yourself. PURINIZE® kills bacteria and protozoan cysts including E.coli and reduces other contaminants, making water safe to drink. It can also be added to a glass of water when brushing your teeth, at water fountains when refilling your water bottle, and in your water glass at restaurants.
Hurricanes, floods, severe storms, chemical spills and other natural or man-made disasters jeopardize water quality and availability. In an emergency, having access to safe, clean water for drinking, personal hygiene, and cooking is critical. Power outages, bacterial or chemical contamination (boil-water advisories), or infrastructure damage could disrupt your public or private water supply.
Be prepared for any water crisis with PURINIZE®. A valuable item in an emergency preparedness kit or bug out bag, PURINIZE® transforms any freshwater source (even compromised ones) into a safe, potable water supply on demand. And, unlike other water treatment products, it offers protection against toxic contaminants
, like MCHM
, the industrial chemical that contaminated West Virginia's drinking water in 2014. By adding PURINIZE® to your emergency survival kit or bug-out bag, you can be sure that you and your family will always have access to safe, clean water.
