Water Purification Methods
Boiling: It is recommended that one reaches a rolling boil for at least one minute.
Water Distillation catches the condensation produced from boiling water, removing minerals and contaminants in the process.
Reverse Osmosis Filtration System forces water molecules through a semi-permeable membrane, leaving organic contaminants, toxins, bacteria, salts, etc. behind.
Ultraviolet Light Filters kill mold, bacterial and viral contaminants, including giardia and cryptosporidium, by passing water through an ultraviolet light source.
Multiple Level Filtration System – Ceramic Water Filters are among the stages used in these systems that address contaminants in various stages.
