Purifiers

According to the World Health Organisation, 80 per cent of all illness acquired during travel is attributable to contaminated water.

According to the World Health Organisation, 80 per cent of all illness acquired during travel is attributable to contaminated water. Even water that looks sparklingly clean can be polluted with E coli, parasites, viruses, animal waste, heavy metals and other toxins. And when travelling we can't always rely on a steady source of safe, bottled water. So for anyone camping somewhere remote and facing the prospect of having to use untreated lake or river water, or who is in a restaurant where they don't trust the water - or the ice cubes in it - a portable water purifier is a true hero product.
