When traveling, nothing is more important than having safe, clean water readily available. We often travel to countries where the drinking water might make us sick. Sometimes it is because the water is actually contaminated, and sometimes it is just that our digestive systems are unused to the wee beasties in the water. In either case, the Camelbak All Clear UV water purification system allows us to drink any tap water and know we will suffer no ill effects.
We have used it in places where even the locals don’t drink the water (Bali, Indonesia, Mexico) and in places where the water is “supposed” to be safe (Costa Rica, Thailand). In Western Australia, we were drinking collected rain water and it was upsetting our stomachs. It was easy to purify the drinking water with the All Clear. Since it works so quickly, we were easily able to make gallons of pure water in a very short time.
We like how effortless this system is to use. Just fill the water bottle, screw on the UV cap and press the button. The built-in LCD display counts down 60 seconds as the UV light purifies the water and shows when it is complete. The water tastes great too.
