A portable water filter is the way to go when you are planning a camp out. Who wants to worry about packing bottles of water for when you are headed out on a trip. It's so much simpler and environmentally friendly to use the water that is available to you. Choosing the right water filter for you can be difficult but there are many options of filters and elements to choose from.
If you are interested in having a large amount of water available to you and your family then you want to look at a portable water filter that holds lots of water. Many of these gravity-powered filtration devices can hold anywhere from 2 gallons all the way up to 10 gallons of water at a time. They can often process 1 of these gallons in an hour. These types often hold a ceramic element which last a lot longer than some other types of filters. But these are easier to clean in the field so you don't have to worry about it being clogged beyond use.
There are smaller portable water purifiers that can be useful. These types though, don't hold as much water, a liter or two at most, and to filter the water you actually have to do some of the work. It can be tiresome to filter more than a liter or two of water at a time, since it take a minute or more just to filter what the container holds. These filters are made with smaller micron pores but the material generally used to make these filters doesn't last as long as the ceramic filters.
There are other types of water purification systems you can look at if you like. If you are into camping with a camper trailer or in a cottage you can find faucet attachments that work well for lake water, such as the Katadyn Combi Plus. These are specifically designed to connect to a faucet that gets it water from the available supply. This way you can use your trailer sink without worrying about what you might be picking up from your surroundings.
Portable water purifiers are the best way to ensure that you will give your family a safe choice when it comes to drinking the water. There are a lot of variables when you are deciding which one of the many types of filters to use. It really boils down to whether you are going to be out for an extended period or just for a day.
