Water to Go purification system

I have had the Water to Go purification system bottle around 3 months now (mental note: buy replacement filter) and now use it for all my drinking water wherever I happen to be, which most of the time happens to be the office.


I was curious to see it in action after watching some demonstration videos so I went to the lake outside the office and filled the bottle, I then opened the spout and poured the filtered water into a glass. Then it was time to carry out some blind taste testing against tap water and bottled water, some colleagues played guinea pigs after they watched me take a drink from each glass first. They were able to tell which one was tap water very easily and were impressed with the taste of the filtered water, one colleague who was going traveling even brought one straight after.

The filter which lasts for 200 litres, or 3 months was made with technology specifically developed for the NASA space programme has been proved to remove 99.9% of contaminates in the water such as:

  • Chromium, Mercury, Nickel, Copper, Iron

This list is abridged but includes some of the most recognizable and common problems.

This filter will even turn cola into water (Filters will become inefficient if used with additives such as isotonic powders, cordials, juices etc. Not recommended to filter urine for drinking purposes.)
