Get Clear on Water Treatment with MSR's Guardian Purifier
Although small, portable water treatment options have been available for years, the issue of having clean, potable water will be around for as long as we love to explore the unknown. Mountain Safety Research (MSR) not only offers a full line of camping accessories, they also strive to educate adventurist about safety in the wilderness, including the importance and techniques of producing drinkable water.
The Guardian by MSR is new for 2016, offering some of the world’s most advanced water purification technology in a compact and lightweight package. Whether you’re touring or camping, protect yourself from bacteria, viruses, parasitic worms, and more by using the Guardian Purifier.
"Undeveloped water sources can contain both visible plant and earth matter, such as tannins and sediment, and invisible threats such as metals, fertilizers, and organisms. Of these, the organisms—the microscopic bugs—pose the immediate threat to human health. (Tannins and sediment aren’t particularly harmful; and metals, fertilizers and mercury take repeated long-term exposure to cause harm.) Therefore, those microscopic pests are the primary focus of water treatment technologies."-- Mountain Safety Research
