HOW TO TREAT WATER IN THE FIELD?

Supplying drinking water for several days requires excluding a considerable amount of space in the backpack, and most importantly, adding weight to the luggage. One of the survival skills is obtaining drinking water from a lake or river. In our opinion, this is the most important ability, as we are able to survive without food, safe shelter or lighting a fire, but without drinking water, our expedition will end the fastest, even within several hours. All the more so during the intensified effort that requires us to survive. If we do not provide our body with fluids in time we will become dull, fall out of strength, get a headache, and may even lose consciousness.

There are 3 types of water pollution; mechanical, chemical, biological.

We can easily remove the mechanical contamination by filtration with a cotton cloth - it can be a simple sling or adapted for filtration WORK. On the other hand, with the remaining pollutants we are forced to help ourselves WATER FILTERS or bringing water to a boil. It is worth remembering that boiling water removes most microorganisms, but not all of them. In addition, boiling several liters of water and waiting for the temperature to drop, in daily activities, can be a nuisance.

The most budget-friendly chemical filtration methods are WATER TREATMENT TABLETS. The chlorine-based design neutralizes water, and one tablet is enough to purify 1 liter of water. Remember to wait 30 minutes. If, on the other hand, amoeba (Entamoeba histolytica) is suspected in the water, dissolve 2 tablets per 1 liter of water and wait 60 minutes.

Convenient and handy are BOTTLES WITH FILTERS. Compact containers with a built-in, usually replaceable filter will keep you hydrated while hiking. Smart technologies not only purify water, but will take care of improving its taste.

An interesting device is UV WATER STERILIZERS. With the help of UV radiation, this small device destroys more than 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa preventing m ills.in. for amoebiasis, cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, diarrhea, Legionnaires' disease or infection by viruses. The device is rechargeable and lasts for up to 8,000 uses. A prerequisite for proper filtration is clear water, as water that is too cloudy and dirty interferes with the operation of the filter.

Let's focus our attention on GRAVITY FILTER. This device includes two bags for dirty and clean water and a filter tube. The capacity of the dirty and clean water bags is 4 liters each. The system of attaching the tubes to the container is conceived and facilitates packing. Containers are equipped with convenient carrying and hanging handles. Interestingly, GRAVITY WATER FILTERS have been used by American soldiers in the field.

It is worth noting that the filters listed are reusable. If tyristics and marching is your hobby invest in a decent and safe filtration product. Don't burden your luggage with water bottles and take care of the environment.

We hope your knowledge of water treatment in the Territory has expanded.
