As an outdoor sports person there is a good chance that you will run out of water when on the hill or the singletrack. The views on drinking from mountain streams and the like are mixed…

Look at your average forum these days and you’ll find as many arguing that they have drunk from streams for years with no ill effects, versus those who state that they either dont or if they do they use some form of purification.

What is clear is that with a lot of upland agriculture and de-forestation using chemicals these days ‘run off’ – as it is called – is possible and could, in theory, contaminate these otherwise wonderful sources of hydration.

If purification is your bag, then this new chemical-free purification system could be for you.

Pure Hydration, a specialist in water purification, have unveiled a major breakthrough in technology by producing a chemical-free version of its flagship Aquapure Traveller product.

The Aquapure Traveller instant purification system employs Pure Hydration’s new MAD (Mechanically Advanced Disinfection) Technology to instantly turn a murky, contaminated liquid into water that’s clean, clear and safe to drink, wherever you might be in the world.

The lightweight Aquapure Traveller is a personal water purifier with a massive number and range of potential end users, from climbers, mountain bikers and mountain and trail runners to walkers, adventure travellers and tourists.

MAD Technology works in the Aquapure Traveller’s ‘Disinfection Media’ to eliminate water-borne pathogens using a process based on electrohesion. This means that anything harmful contained in contaminated water from bacteria and viruses to heavy metals and faecal matter, are instantly removed and held safely within the pores of the Media, leaving the user free to drink without fear of contamination.

The filters in the Aquapure Traveller are good for up to 350 litres of water and will block up once they reach the end of their life making them extremely safe to use. That also equates to 700 less 500ml plastic bottles ending up as landfill and a substantial financial saving for the user too – which has to be a good thing.

Th new Aquapure Traveller retails for £34.99, and is available by clicking here
