Water. Without any shade of doubt, this is the most basic necessity that you as a human being requires. Or do you tend to differ? Honestly, tell me, how long do you think you would last without having water? Drinking water to be precise.
If you would let me, I would say that a day can hardly pass before you take in water. Yes, this shows how important this commodity is. How necessary it is in your daily living.
Or have you never heard of a person being hospitalized for water to be added to his or her system? Lack of water could very well compromise your health, a situation referred to as dehydration.
Though we need water this much, the water we require is not just any water but clean and pure drinking water. In general, the water that is in abundance on earth is not safe for drinking.
As such, due precaution should be taken to make the water not only clean but also pure for drinking. Water that we can be able to drink without further compromising of our health.
It is in this view that means of water purification and cleaning are necessitated. The product that I am going to review, AquaStiq, has this as its aim. Remember that reviews can only give you a brief idea of the product.
About The Product: AquaStiq Filter
You might be wondering what this product that carried such a strange name is. At least from the term Aqua, which is a prefix that implies water, you know it has something to do with water.
The device is a portable water filter that you can make use of in filtering water that may not look clean. It has been designed with survivalists and campers in mind but I can also comfortably recommend it to you as a traveler.
The device has the ability of removing 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria from water. Bacteria such as salmonella and E.coli.
The product also has a claim of being able to eliminate 99.9% of protozoan parasites that are waterborne such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The device also accomplishes the reduction of turbidity through the filtration of particles down to 0.2 microns and its weight is just 2 ounces.
Additionally, the product is free from BPA and its filtration uses no chemical that is harsh, moving parts or even batteries. The shelf life that is associated with it is also indefinite.
To some extent the claims are rather ridiculous since water filtered by the device is not water from every source. For instance, it cannot be able to eliminate chemicals such as fluoride, chlorine and heavy metals.
The device is less of a filter but is more of a purifier. This implies that only protozoa and bacteria can be eliminated from the water using it. However, it still remains a useful filter.
A filter that I would recommend to travelers with whom water in a given country that they are travelling to cannot be guaranteed to be clean.
Creators of AquaStiq
The water filter is a creation of Survival Life. Upon creation, the device is sold on online platforms through Clickbank. A given tube has the ability to filter a thousand liters of water that comes from almost all sources.
Let us take an incisive look at the technology that lies behind the device to evaluate its effectiveness in filtering your water.
Features of AquaStiq
Before I get to explaining just how the product works, it is important that a closer analysis of various bold claims is taken. You might also be in doubt in regard to the claims that are made for a device as small as this.
- 9999% of waterborne bacteria are removed including salmonella and E. coli.
- 99% of waterborne parasitic protozoans such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
- Has a weight of just 2 ounces.
- The shelf life is indefinite.
The feature on the shelf life is rather vague. The long lasting of the device is possible if you leave the device without using on the shelf. However, buying of a new device will be necessary after approximately a thousand liters of water are filtered.
The system that is used in the process of filtering will lose its effectiveness with the passage of time. It is impossible for you to buy a filter for replacement purposes to stick on the device you are currently using.
A neat feature with the device is the ability of it to indicate whenever filtration system needs replacement. At such a time, the sucking of the straw will stop automatically.
According to the explanation from the manufacturer, if getting water through it becomes a challenge then it is high time you throw it away as you get another one. It would have truly served its purpose by then.
Another important noting point is that the device lacks some crucial filters. Filter that that restrict its usage idealness to only some sources of water.
Usage of AquaStiq
Nothing can be more straightforward than the usage of this device. Here are the three steps to the whole process that you require to know;
Step 1: Take off the cap and place the bottom of the straw into your source of water sipping from mouthpiece. In the situation whereby the water level is too low to be touched, a hose is connected to the device and the end of the hose put in the water.
Step 2: The filtered end is insert into the water storage system just as a bottle or water bag.
Step 3: Use the hose as a connection to the reserve bag, then use water pressure to filter the water.
The basic idea is that the action of sucking will suck the water via the filters and into the device. You do not require to use any chemicals or pump.
