We have spoken about water filters that you can install in your home to get great tasting water and save money at the same time. This time we are going to talk about how to get filtered water while you are out and about.
If you are camping for the weekend or just on a short hike, or even in your car going shopping, access to clean drinking water is still crucial.
If you only have your backpack you do not want to carry loads of water, and you want to avoid having to buy plastic bottles which are expensive and bad for the environment. There is only one way for you to be certain that the water you find is free from contaminants such as heavy metals, chlorine, pesticides among other things and that is by filtering it yourself before drinking it.
It would be so much more convenient to have a bottle that you could fill up from any tap and still be able to drink filtered water.
Step in with the BottlePro - the 750ML reusable water bottle including a filter that filters 80+ contaminants from public supply drinking water, and keeps your water cool for 24 hours.
Are water filters a waste of money?
A 2L bottle of the cheapest bottled water at a major supermarket is 0.55c so that means it's 0.28c per litre. Small bottles are even more expensive, the cheapest is from 0.90c per litre so if you have a child in school you probably spend around 100EUR on bottled water for one child each term.
So the answer is that no, to use a water filter is never a waste of money and you can read about how much money you can save by not buying water in plastic bottles.
You can get the filters for your bottle at a cost of 69EUR per year, which gives you 6 refills providing up to 900L of great tasting filtered water at just 0.08c per litre and if you subscribe for the filter refills you can save 10% off the price.
Is there a bottle with a filter in Malta?
TAPP Water now offers you BottlePro that has a capacity of 750ml and filters while you drink uses advanced 4-stage microfiltration technology. The refills consist of an activated carbon fibre that absorbs 80+ different contaminants such as chlorine and chlorination by products, chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, metals and organic elements thanks to its microscopic structure and highly porous surface. As the water passes through the refill, all substances are retained in the activated carbon. The result is clean, filtered water that is ready to drink.
TAPP waters mission in Malta is to eliminate the use of plastic bottles and we are happy for every new TAPP Hero who joins us in the mission!
