What brands can I trust with my water?
Taking large amounts of water with you when you travel can be difficult. If you are hiking or trekking, carrying fresh water can really weigh you down. If you are going off the grid, finding a fresh water source can sometimes be almost impossible, and if you are touring overseas, trusting the water supply can be dangerous. That’s why purifying and storing water on site, or as you go, is valuable, and at Anaconda we have all the big brands to help you do it. Brands such as Camelbak, Bushtracks, Steripen, and Kookaburra, just to name a few, all provide quality products to keep your water safe and potable.
What do I need to know about making water potable?
Not every place you will visit will have potable water available, and in some countries, Australians aren’t advised to drink tap water at all. Having the ability to clean and sanitise water without boiling it can be a real asset. Whether you are hiking, camping or caravanning, at Anaconda we have a range of products that can help make, and keep, water potable. Our water filters for caravans, camper trailers and even boats can be installed quickly and easily, and help reduce dirt, rust and algae, as well as removing chemical tastes an odours from drinking water. They can also help prevent bacterial growth and are ideal for filling tanks or being fitted under your sink.
On a smaller scale, our water bottle range also includes options with water filters that can remove dirt, bacteria and parasites. You can buy the bottles, and extra filters, online or at any Anaconda store. This allows you to simply scoop water from a river or a pond, and sip clean water through the straw.
If you need to clean larger volumes of water, for longer trips, purification liquid can be a good choice. It can provide fast and effective water disinfection, and is an essential item for travellers wanting to avoid contamination by drinking local water or brushing their teeth. It can preserve water for up to 6 months, and it is always best to use a separate filter for turbid water.
Our range of cleaning tablets can do similar things, and work within 5 minutes. Tablets can be used for emergency situations, and they can also keep your water reservoir free from taste and odour ready for your next adventure. They can be a handy sterilization system against viruses, bacteria, cryptosporidium, and giardia, making them flexible for any purpose. Take a look through our entire tablet range to make sure you have the one suitable for your needs. Finally, clean water is no good without somewhere to store it. We have a range of water storage options that are lightweight, easy to carry and can store enough water to suit your immediate needs.
Is water purification expensive?
Water purification technology is usually a small price to pay to make a big difference. Our range can suit all kinds of budgets, giving you the flexibility of choice and the benefit of security no matter where you go. They can save you a lot of time, and may even save your life.
