Let’s assume you’ve acted on the warnings you have heard and have stopped drinking faucet or even well water as is. You have decided only filtered water is worthy of yourself and your family. If so, you have elected to either buy a filter and purify it yourself, or to continually purchase bottled water in some form.The problem is, when you go on vacation or on a camping trip, you don’t want to trust the water supplies available to have the same healthy water you enjoy at home. If you are purchasing bottled water, then you’ll take along a case or two. This option will probably provide you with safe water, but it is the most expensive.

If the unit is portable, take it with you on vacation so that you can guarantee the water you drink away is as good as that you drink at home.If you either have a built in filter, or can’t pack your gravity fed water filter, then what do you do? A good option is for you to plan ahead. Filter more water than you need now and store the extra to take with you on vacation.But in what should you store and transport it? The water is clean but you certainly don’t want to jeopardize your family’s health by storing it in unsafe containers. Perhaps you have heard the recent plastics warnings. The PET bottles (made of polyethylene terephthalate) used by most bottled water companies, are safe enough as long as they are not reused. However, if you store water in them where it is warm, plastics can contaminate the water over time.Another option is to store your filtered water in the hard plastic bottles used for asics asics walking shoes ireland water coolers, or the smaller ones used for sports drinks. They look safe but the National Institutes of Health recently tested bisphenol used to make these bottles, and found it caused neurological problems in babies before birth.

You want the purified water from home but can??t bring the filter. If you take filtered water from home and store it in unsafe containers, you defeat your purpose.

In addition, we have the peace of mind, knowing that the water is pure and safe, and the containers can be washed and reused without contaminating the water we drink.
