WATER TREATMENT


Natural water can come from many different sources: lakes, snow, rain, springs... The question then arises: is it safe to drink? Unfortunately it is not often the case. However, staying hydrated is essential when you make a physical effort. Your body needs on average 2 to 3 liters of water per day depending on the intensity of your activities. So what do you do when you leave for several days without a source of drinking water? Purify the water! Animals and humans contribute to the contamination of water. Bacteria grow in it. By purifying the water you avoid the risk of diseases. 

The advantages of water treatment

During a trek or a hike, water management can sometimes be complicated. Water is the most important element but also the heaviest to carry. With water treatment, you don't have to carry around gallons and gallons of water. All you have to do is find a source to fill your filtering gourd or water bag. The advantage is that you can limit the amount of water and therefore the weight in your hiking backpack. 

Which system to choose to purify water? 

There are several types of filtering products. They are your allies for hiking, trekking, bivouac or travel.

Simply suck up the container and the water passes through the filter and is treated.

Filtering water bags : models can be found at Katadyn, Lifestraw, MSR... this system generally works by gravity. The water passes through the filter and is sure to retain all harmful elements. It is ideal for your base camps or bivouacs in autonomy. 

Jerrycans : thanks to their large capacity and their flow rate of 3 liters per minute, you will not run out of water for a while. They use a high performance filtration technology to eliminate bacteria and viruses. The activated carbon filter eliminates bad odors or taste from the water.

The filter straws : they are very light and space saving. They can purify a minimum of 4000 L of water. All you have to do is suck in the straw to generate the energy needed to filter the water.
