Let me tell you about a little secret!
Do you want to ESCAPE MORE GUT WRENCHING stomach and bowel problems on holidays?
It is a personal portable water filter that actually works. It is small and ultra-lite weight, enough to fit in your pocket, backpack or handbag. No bigger than 4 standard drinking straws place together.
Why did I not hear about this before?
It has only just been released after a number of years of exhaustive testing and obtaining approvals by a large number of international government agencies and accredited laboratories, from the US to Australia, Europe and Asia. It’s a product that has been accept by the United Nations , exceeds CDC guidelines by a number of factors. A number of government agencies around the world have already started using the products as part of their Aid and Disaster Preparedness kits.
The concept is simple, the device works by having an extremely fine filter to remove nasty microbiology that can make you sick. The membrane acts as a size exclusion barrier, trapping the nasties in the body of the SureAqua products as you drink through them, nasty microbiology trapped – clean water passing through. The trick is to make it easy enough for an average person to suck through without having lungs of a superhero.
You may be thinking there are already portable water filter products in the market place that does this already. Well make sure you read the fine print details in the specification, you will find that it doesn’t take out bacteria, or all bacteria and more than likely takes only some of the taste using some kind of activated carbon or resin. It does serve its purpose though if you want to take out the bad bacteria and protozoa’s forget about it!
As you are already thinking how what a great idea? Why hasn’t this been thought of before? It’s all in the construction and usability. This is what took so long to develop and manufacturable to make cost effective for the consumer.
Being a seasoned traveller, I take extreme precaution in what I eat and what I drink whilst you are traveling, backing or hiking. No matter where I go, from Australia to Asia, the South America to Europe and even in the USA. It’s nothing worse than losing days off my holidays because of a tummy bug. Particularly when it’s avoidable!
Here is an interesting little fact. The number one illness whilst travelling is gastroenteritis, diarrhoea, dysentery. What would you think the statistic for having diarrhoea?
In a number of internationally conducted studies the percentage is in the region of 28% to as high as 40%. About 50% of those people it severely disrupts at least 1 full day of their break and not to say the recovery period of 2 to 3 days. About 0.5% of people are actually hospitalised, with a number of people bringing illness home with them and then having this impacting their return to work. You may think it is generally the elderly, this is the furthest from the truth, it’s the 20-34 age group.
As I found out it is all too easy to get diarrhoea, from drinking water to brushing your teeth to eating a salad. Just a couple small tips about how to avoid water borne bacteria
*Eat only fruit that can be peeled
* Avoid any salads
*Always drink filtered water, effectively filtered water
*Remember to keep your mouth shut in the shower
*Use filtered water when you brush your teeth
*Be careful of bottled water as it in many areas the water comes straight from the tap
*Don’t trust the tap water from even 5 or 6 star hotels
*Don’t have ice in your drink, bacteria can live for some time in ice
*If boiling water, only drink water that has been boiled for at least 5 minutes
*Don’t be fooled by thinking iodine or chlorine will kill protozoa’s and hard shell cysts effectively, they will not
This travel gadget is really inexpensive/cost effective/great value!
Just consider, this product can be reused, over and over again on any vacation up to a staggering 6 months, has the ability to filter to 500 litres/ 164 gallons making the cost of water per litre 0.4 cents a litre. Remind me what the cost of bottled water is – and you do you actually know that it is free of the nasties that will make you sick? What was the cost of your holiday? You can’t go past it, the SureAqua products are an amazingly inexpensive while EASY to use insurance policy.
You take out travel insurance, hey, spring for a SureAqua portable water filter and protect yourself in an easy practical way – you suck, it filters, it’s that easy.
Do yourself a favour and check it out at SureAqua. Be early as these are going off like hot cakes.
Not only is a must on your next holiday, they sort of look cool.
When you do your research, be really careful of other products in the market place.
1.Always check that it filter to at least 1 micron, the SureAqua products have a minimum filtration of 0.2 micron
2.That it stops working when it is ineffective there, carbon and media filters lets the water flow even after they stop working.
3.Find out how long you can store the products, chemical purification has a limited shelf life.
4.Check out the disclaimers and warranties – some actually really highlight that the company isn’t standing behind their products or claims.
