The Importance Of Purifying Water While Camping

If you're out on a hike (or any adventure that takes you far from civilisation), drinking from a fresh, running stream can not only seem like a good idea, but a fun and refreshing way to commune with nature. The trouble is, you never know when a body of water is harbouring harmful bacteria and protozoa like E.Coli or Giardia - and if you're a long way from help, these microbes can make you seriously ill and land you in a lot of trouble very fast.

By purifying your water before you drink it, you're ensuring these harmful microbes don't enter your body - keeping you healthy, hydrated, and free to enjoy your adventure. There are several different ways to purify water, and the best one for you will largely depend on what kind of adventure you've got planned and where you're planning on going.

Water Purification FAQs

How do water purification tablets and drops work?

Water purification tablets contain a combination of chemicals that kill harmful bacteria that can be found in natural, untreated water sources. You can also find these chemicals in droplet form. Always make sure to add the correct number of pills or drops for the volume of water as per the manufacturer's specifications. Small amounts might not kill the bacteria, while excessive amounts might turn the water acidic.

You need to also wait the recommended wait time after mixing with water - usually around 30 minutes.

How does a camping water purifier work?

You can find water purifying devices with hoses which are operated with a pump. There are also water purifying bottles like those from Lifestraw. Both sorts utilise special filters and membranes to remove bacteria, viruses and heavy metals and make your water safe to drink.

How else can I make sure my water is safe to drink while camping?

If you're setting up a base camp, boiling water can be a safe, cost-effective way of purifying water for drinking. Just make sure you have adequate water jerry cans or water containers for storing your filtered water, as well as any water bottles and hydration packs. This will ensure you're able to comfortably carry enough water when you're off on your daily hikes, rides and other activities.
