What could you want more if you are a life-challenger, a person that travels a lot in wild nature and far away civilizations? This simple device attaches to any bottleneck is built of high impact polystyrene and its active ingredients ( Halogenated resin, Anion exchange resin and Active carbon, silver loaded) makes it effective against waterborne bacteria, filtering particles from 125 Micron down to 6 microns. It lasts for one year – 700 litres (calculated approximately on consumption of 2 litre water/day) and gets you protected from a lot of trouble and is expected to cost under $2.

I have been hired the previous week at a big telecom company as an telecom engineer and after about 3 months of certification and courses I’ll be traveling the world with my job. Especially in developing countries in Africa and Asia and I have a feeling this piece of equipment will do a good job. I’ve noticed the difference in water-quality when moving from my home-town to the city i’ve been attending the university studies ( from a biological point of view) and the stomach really feels the difference, it doesn’t lie about the bacteria and other beings in the water. If only this device could somehow get rid of the lime in the water it would be really really great.
