Here are the five WORST traits of portable water purifiers on the market
They only filter out small amount of impurities.
They require frequent filter changes which means spending more money.
The filter life should last more than two or three months.
They’re cheap. A water purifier is not an item you want to skimp on.
You get what you pay for and in many cases it is better not to spend the money at all than to buy a cheap filter.
They don’t give you an extensive list of filtered items.
A good filter tells you exactly what it removes, and the list is long.
They require batteries for electronic usage which is many times completely unreliable. Just read the reviews from some of these online.
Here are the five BEST traits to look for in a portable water purifier before purchasing
It should remove all harmful materials and chemicals, including fluoride, while at the same time leaving all of water’s healthy minerals.
This includes pathogenic bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, herbicides, VOCs, organic solvents, Radon 222, trihalomethanes, nitrates, nitrites, lead, aluminum, mercury and more.
The filters should last at least 6,000 gallons for a large non BPA copolyester or stainless steel system or at least 500 refills for a hand-held water filter bottle before needing to be replaced.
There should be a guarantee that a lab has tested the filters to perform the way they are advertised.
A good quality filter costs more up front, but you wind up saving money in the long run.
Spend more in the beginning and know you’re making a smart decision for your health.
Durability is key. Is your water filter system going to last? Can it get a little banged up and still provide pure water when you need it?
Be wise when shopping for a portable water purifier and keep these suggestions in mind.
There are dependable filters available, so be sure to look at all your choices before making a final decision.
You need a powerful, reliable portable water purifier for you and your family to guarantee clean, healthy water.
Don’t waste any more time or money on filters that don’t give you what you need. Making the right decision will move your family towards healthier living.
