Water Filtration Bottles

I don’t like to rely on a lot of fancy gadgetry, but one of the coolest things that I found are sport water bottles equiped with super effecient filters. Seriously, mobile and easy to carry instant filtration for water! There are two that I’ve tried and both work great.

The first one is the British Berkefeld bottle that uses a black element filter. They filter out a trmendous amount of little nasties, and like its older cousin, you can filter pond water through it. Its a great bottle and well worth the expence of getting one. The biggest cons are the fact that they are very expensive and the black element filters cannot be cleaned like the ceramic filters can. The best thing is that the black element filters are a lot less fragile.

The second  bottle uses a generic Berky style ceramic filter, which, in my experience, is just as good as the real Berky ones. These are a lot cheaper and you can clean the filters over and over. The biggest con is that the ceramic filters are fragile and you can’t be really rough with the bottle. The best thing with these is that they are very inexpensive and last a long time.

Because I live every day paycheck to paycheck, I chose to go with the least expensive of the two. It doesn’t matter what kind of bottle you get, so long as it fits with your plans and mode of survival. In a pinch when you can’t use any better purification system, this may just be the cat’s meow.

I have also heard of Lifestraws, but have not tried it yet. If anyone has, please let me know how they work and how long they last. The monthly Prepper’s Meeting is tonight, so expect a new post later on 🙂

As always, may God grant you peace.
