What is Water Filtration and why is it important?
Water filtration is the process of 'cleaning' water using a porous material to remove organic and inorganic compounds, particles, chemicals, bacteria, protozoa and in some instances viruses that are suspended in water. Water filtration and purification methods have been used for thousands of years to varying degrees of success. Today there are hundreds of products on the market, each claiming to be the best. To save you time and hopefully stop you getting ill from drinking contaminated water we have compiled the very best - tried and trusted portable filtration systems available.
Just be aware that filtering water will not remove most man made chemicals or salt from sea water. To remove these we advise using a method of desalination / condensation such as building and using a simple solar still.
