The AquaPure Traveller (APT) is a personal water
purifier, filter and a water bottle all in one product. The APT
was produced to help people who find themselves in places where
the local water source is not palatable (too many chemicals), of
doubtful quality or even dangerous to drink. The APT will allow
you to fill the bottle from ANY water source and provide you with
safe, palatable, clear, odourless drinking water. The APT kills
viruses and bacteria and removes parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
Over 85% of the fresh surface water in the world is contaminated.
Even in the Western world, there are problems with the drinking water;
numerous Cryptosporidium outbreaks have occurred in UK and U.S domestic
water supplies in recent years.
The bottled water market is booming and sales of bottled
water are huge. This growth reflects the general population’s understanding
of the need for hydration, the poor quality of tap water and increased
health awareness and consequent replacement of ‘Soda’ type drinks with
As increasing numbers of people travel and travel to exotic
places the awareness of safe drinking water has been increasing; more
people are getting sick from drinking water and consequently more become
aware. The numbers of people adventure travelling increases year by year.
These travellers are even more likely to have contact with contaminated
water. However, even ‘5 Star’ travellers are at risk in some countries.
Based on the findings of The Passenger Survey 2001-2002
there were 54 million trips by UK residents. There were 8-10 million people
from the UK travelling to tropical regions of the world. 30% of UK holidaymakers
suffer some form of stomach upset whilst on holiday. 15-20% of patients
seen at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases will have a waterborne infection.
Fact: There are more people in the world’s hospitals suffering from water-borne
diseases than any other ailment. At any time, more than half the world’s
hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-borne diseases.
Who needs an APT?
The APT is ideal for travel abroad and
camping. The system is simple to use. You fill up the bottle from a water
source such as tap water, river, pond or stream, screw on the filter cap,
shake the bottle then after 15 minutes just squeeze for pure, clean, great
tasting water. The APT may be of use to you if you:
Buy bottled water on a regular basis.
Live an active lifestyle.
Travel abroad on business or holidays - it will
ensure you can drink safe water, even hotel water in many places may
not be safe to drink. Just one mouthful of unsafe water could make you
sick and ruin your holiday.
Are concerned about drinking chemicals and the
taste of drinking water.
Like camping or hiking.
In many natural disasters as well
as man made ones, sourcing drinking water can be a problem. With an APT,
all workers as well as victims can be provided with safe drinking water.
U.S, U.K and other Governments are issuing guidelines on household safety
due to heightened terrorist threats. In the Event of any such incident
if you have an APT you will be able to use all water sources in the house
– Storage tank or central heating system - and any outside water source
outside even if contaminated – e.g swimming pools.
How accurate is the APT?
Fully independently tested by various Government Laboratories
and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The APT is used worldwide on expeditions
and by various Special Forces
How does the APT work?
Just a gentle squeeze of the APT forces the water through
the 2 micron unique disinfection and filtration system impregnated with
a patented formula of absorbing materials and chemicals.
What will the APT take out of the
The APT removes waterborne pathogens such as Giardia and
Cryptosporidium. It removes bad tastes, odours and reduces toxic chemicals
(Iodine, chlorine) and heavy metals (lead, asbestos etc).
Does the APT take out Viruses and Bacteria?
Yes - The virus needs to be disinfected out, the APT has
an Iodine resin sleeve that fits over the filter and kills the viruses
and bacteria. (Ecoli, Cholera, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Polio)
Can I put anything other than water through my
Please do not put anything through the system but WATER
i.e NOT urine, coffee, cola, milk, orange juice, squash, beer, lager or
Guinness. NOTHING other than WATER. Please also note that putting very
muddy water will prematurely block their filter so it is not advised.Good
survival practise is to take water from the fastest flowing part of the
river and to take the clearest looking water. If you are at a fixed base
then you should allow the water to sedimentate and to take the clearest
water that you can. It will prolong the life of the filter.
Intructions on how to use the APT:
Before using for the first time, please flush the bottle
and filter cap throughly to remove excess carbon. Do this by filling the
bottle from a tap, hose or other source of water. Fit the filter to the
bottle, pull the nozzle up and squeeze the water out.
To use the APT, simply fill up the bottle
from any fresh water source, river, pond or puddle, screw on the filter
cap with the disinfectant sleeve, shake the bottle, allowing the iodinated
resin sleeve to be in contact with the water for a minimum period of 15
minutes. Then pop up the top and gently squeeze the water through the
filter into your mouth or a cup for pure, clean, great tasting water.
How long does the aquapure traveller last?
350 litres. Depending on the turbidity and contamination
of the water.
How will I know when it is time to change the cap?
It will become increasingly difficult to squeeze water
through the system, and eventually the filter will block up completely.
Features and Benefits of the APT:
Simple to use, fill the bottle, screw
on the cap and squeeze.
Will filter up to 350 litres ( 700 Refills) of
fresh, safe and palatable drinking water.
Fill from any fresh water source such as the tap,
pond, lake, river (not salt water).
