Travel Berkey Camping and Travel Water Purifier

Updated on October 17, 2011

A travel Berkey water purifier is portable and economical. Not only is it the best home water filter system you can buy, it's now small enough to take with you wherever you go. The travel berkey portable water purifier is great for camping, hunting, traveling or home use.

Have you ever thought that a portable water purifier would be great to have on your next trip outdoors? If you are a camper or backpacker you know that having a portable water filter could mean less stress on your back and your mind.

A portable water purifier could mean the difference between you having a great camping experience, having someone hiking out of camp to get more water, or having a person stay in camp purifying drinking water by boiling it. That doesn't sound like my ideal camping extravaganza.

Most people use home water filters, because they know to protect themselves against drinking straight tap water. It is no secret that water could be contaminated. So, when you go outdoors if you are planning on using a water source that is convenient you have to use a home water filters or be forced to purify your water by boiling it. Did you know that boiling water removes parasites from your water? It doesn't protect you against the toxins and chemicals that could still be there.

Did you know that everyone requires at least 8 glasses of water a day to survive in normal circumstances? Of course you did. You have heard that since you were a kid. However, did you know that as you increase your activity level you need more water than average because your body is expending it more rapidly. Don't limit yourself by relying on boiled water at the end of the day. A portable water filter can provide pure drinking water throughout the day so that you can perform at your best. It is faster and more efficient than boiling.

When I found this out it made sense, but I hadn't thought about how important getting fresh water on the move can be before. So, if you am outdoors hiking, backpacking or just playing I need more water than my average day sitting in front of my computer working. How am I going to make sure i get plenty of safe drinking water that is convenient while I am camping or hiking? The answer is a portable water purification system that can be used in a variety of water situations.

The fact is that no water in the wild should be consumed unless it has been purified. Portable water purification systems can save you the expense of a trip to the hospital due to contracting a parasite or other contaminants that were in your drinking water. It can save you a hours of boiling, You want to enjoy your time away from the daily grind. You don't want to be stuck in an emergency room after a camping trip suffering from nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps. You want to have more time on the trail and nights by the fire.

      I ran across a great article recently on <a href=" you never know what's coming out of your tap</a>. It's so true, the city almost never updates us about the water...unless there's been some kind of break and they're telling us not to use the water for a certain period.

      Having these bottles even in the house would be a good idea. I could see sending them to school with the kids (I don't even want to know what's in the water there!) since they're not allowed to bring in their own, purified water (might be alcohol, I guess). Or if they want to get water from one of our unpurified faucets. I know some people are too lazy to go to the kitchen every time they want water, my kids always ask ME to do it for them. So having their own bottle would mean they could get water from the bathroom sink instead.

      Great idea!

      I think portable water filters like that are such a great idea! It's amazing that they could get the filtration technology inside something so small. :)

      It'd be great to have something so simple along. Water is critical to our day to day lives, especially if we're camping. But it's so hard to bring enough along. There are plenty of places where we can get water on the road and hiking. But they're not that trustworthy, so it's much better to have a way to purify it.

      The filters seem awesome, thanks for telling us about this!
