Thirst Aid Bag
Perfect – water purification in a bag... Yes a bag! Made of virtually bullet proof (not literally!) material this tough, compact water purification system has a 1.5L capacity yet rolls down to just a few square centimetres (or a couple of square inches for our American friends).
Now proven to reduce microbiological hazards AND over 100 harmful heavy metals, pesticides and other hazardous chemicals
Including arsenic 3&5, cadmium, mercury to NSF 53 standards were reduced by 99.9%. Fluoride tested to NSF 53 standards was reduced by 95%. See our independent testing results for further details.
The unique purifier incorporates our MAD (Mechanically Advanced Disinfection) technology that eliminates
>99.9999% bacteria, 99.999% viruses, >99.99% larger pathogens. >99.9% of many chemicals, heavy metals, dirt and odour.
In testing to NSF Ansi 42 and 53 standards most contaminants demonstrated a reduction greater than 99.9%. Including arsenic 3&5, cadmium, mercury, 4,4 DDT, Aldrin, Dieldrin, Glyphosate, PCBs, Benzene, Toluene and Vinyl Chloride.
Fluoride tested to NSF 53 standards was reduced by 95%.
Why is chemical reduction important to include in your choice of microbiological water purifier? In most, if not in all developing countries and even some best known developed countries - Fresh water sources can be largely contaminated by industrial waste being dumped directly into rivers and streams, an estimated half million tons of PCBs were discharged into the environment during the 20th century. Another kind of toxic pollution comes from heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, and mercury which can come from many sources Inc. old batteries, old plastic bottled water bottles and thousands of other toxic pollutants. The effects will be felt for many decades if not several 100 years until they break down fully into the environment. PCBs have even been found in birds and fish in the Arctic. They were carried there through the oceans, thousands of miles from where they originally entered the environment – transboundary pollution example
The Thirst Aid Bag is a high performance personal water purification system (or IWP- Individual water purifier) that is designed for those who may find themselves in places where water quality is dubious or even dangerous. It has many uses- not only for drinking water but also for brushing your teeth and rinsing your toothbrush to washing fruit or vegetables, cooking or using the water to make hot drinks- unlike many similar products it is squeezable, which means a stream of water can exit from the pop top allowing 500ml of safe water to be dispensed in less than 30 seconds- now that’s fast!
Economical – 350 bottles of bottled water would cost you around £245 avg. worldwide- Which could Save you £200
First Aid in the field - If the only water you have available is unknown quality including bottled water- which could also be unsafe – the MAD purifier is ‘ideal for wound irrigation in emergencies’, cuts or abrasions whilst in the field where there is no medical assistance
The Thirst Aid Bag uses NO chemicals and requires NO wait time. This will enable you to have access to safe, clean drinking water anywhere, anytime.*
