Instapure F5 Faucet Filter named “Best Buy”

Instapure F5I just wanted to share some news on the Instapure F5 Faucet Filter, which was just named a Consumers Digest Best Buy. Since this title is awarded to less than three percent of competing models in each category, it’s worth pointing out what makes this filter worthy of such a distinction.
Though the release doesn’t specify exactly why Consumers Digest named it a Best Buy, we think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that the Instapure F5 reduces far more contaminants than most faucet filters. Most such filters reduce only the taste and odor of Chlorine, but the Instapure F5 also reduces 99.99% of microbial cysts, as well as lead. Given this, it’s not surprising the filter was named a Best Buy, which Consumers Digest defines “as a product that offers the most value for a given amount of money.” Filters Fast sells the filter for only $17.
Scott Wright, Instapure’s chief executive officer, emphasized how just one faucet filter can reduce a person’s dependency on bottled water.
“Every 200-gallon filter we put in the hand of consumers has the potential to eliminate 1500 plastic bottles,” Wright said in a press release. “The Instapure filter is truly a green solution to help individuals reduce their carbon footprint.”

Katadyn ExStream Water Bottles


With warm weather now gracing much of the country, many are heading to the great outdoors to camp, hike and fish. Depending on how great these outdoors are, keeping hydrated and finding clean water sources can be paramount.
You don’t want to be burdened with carrying bottles upon bottles of drinking water, but at the same time, you don’t want to risk drinking water from streams, lakes and rivers, which can contain waterborne protozoa such as Giardia.
The Katadyn Exstream water bottle allows to drink such water without consuming bacteria and harmful contaminants. The bottle uses an advanced Virustat technology to kill 99.9999% of waterborne viruses. Just dip the bottle into any water source and you instantly have safe and delicious drinking water.
I know what you’re thinking: doesn’t that take some of the fun out of “roughing it”?
Well don’t think for a second that MacGyver himself would prefer a paper clip, a piece of gum and some fishing line over this water bottle. When you’re outdoors and clean drinking water is scarce, this water bottle can be a lifesaver.
Katadyn also makes a variety of pocket filters, siphons and emergency water tabs to ensure you’ll be safe and hydrated when on your next camping or hiking trip.
