Water has become a precious resource. Many people in developed countries may not realize it yet, thanks to the modern conveniences they enjoy. But the same cannot be said for those who live in poorer countries with no access to potable water. Time will come when even the richer countries will also feel the effects. All it will take is for those bad human habits like laying the planet to waste to continue. When drinkable water becomes scarcer in the future than it is today, people will search for different ways to access safe water. Different water filters are available to do just that. This MUV Adaptable Water Filter may be the best option available for a portable water filter that people can bring along anywhere.
What Is It?
The MUV Adaptable Water Filter is a special type of water filter. It is compact enough for people who bring it along anywhere. It is not your typical water filter that does only one method of getting rid of pollutants and impurities. It is adaptable and can be made to filter water according to what is needed. As a complete set, the MUV Adaptable Water Filter is able to filter out impurities as well as 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria. This is most ideal for extreme locations where safe and drinkable water is difficult to come by. It makes use of three different filter modules that aim to clear out the different impurities in water.
Water Filter Modules
The first MUV water filter module contains activated carbon. This module can remove heavy metals, chemicals, discoloration as well as the bad taste in impure water. The second module features a hollow fiber membrane. It can filter out large contaminants such as bacteria, protozoa, and parasites. The third module contains nanalum. This filter module is effective in filtering out viruses and other smaller microorganisms that was able to pass through the second module. Its modular design makes it possible to use only the type of filter based on your need. If you just wish to filter tap water from the faucet in order to get rid of chlorine content, using only the first module may be sufficient.
The MUV Adaptable Water Filter may just be the only water filter you will need on the go. It can be used together with a water bottle, hydration pack, or as a gravity system water filter. People can use it together with a pump and even as a straw. The company behind the MUV Adaptable Water Filter have just gone through a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. It will soon be producing the different models for the market. Prices for the different models range from $54 for the Survivalist package to $125 for the Eclipse package. The first batch of these portable water filters is expected to be available by year end.
