While drowning and water damage have been two of the top concerns people affected by Hurricane Harvey have had to deal with recently, there is also the aftermath to worry about. Flooding, especially the massive flooding experienced last week in southeastern Texas, can contaminate water sources by stirring up toxic chemicals from waste sites, according to the — Associated Press and other media outlets.
The Houston metro area contains more than a dozen Superfund sites designated by the Environmental Protection Agency as being among America’s most intensely contaminated places. Some of them are flooded and there is a risk that dangerous sediment is being stirred up.
“This is a time when people in southeastern Texas need to be very careful about the potential of contaminants in the water they use for drinking, bathing and cleaning,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots LLC, a Nashville, Tenn.-based company that provides a variety of products that help people become more self-reliant and independent.
“It’s very important that they filter their water, which otherwise could be contaminated by a wide variety of toxins, due to flooding. Of course, that goes for everyone in the country because dangerous levels of contaminants are being found in many places across the U.S. Lead, in particular, is a concern because it’s one of the most dangerous contaminants, especially for children, whose bodies and brains are still developing.”
Fortunately, people can protect themselves and their children from lead and other contaminants with the Alexapure Pro, a tabletop water purifier capable of transforming contaminated water from virtually any source into clean, safe, delicious water.
An advanced engineered, two-stage filter removes up to 99.99 percent of contaminants, including heavy metals such as lead, as well as arsenic, pharmaceuticals – even E. coli and polio. Drinking contaminated water, regardless of the source, can cause serious illness and even death.
With a 2.3 gallon-per-hour flow rate, the Alexapure Pro purifies water about three times faster than many of its competitors. Users will be able to access up to 5,000 gallons of fresh, clean water from it before the filter needs to be replaced. Priced at $197, that comes to approximately 4 cents per gallon. Bottled water, usually originating from unknown sources, costs considerably more.
No gas, electricity or water pressure is needed to operate the Alexapure Pro. It removes contaminants using only gravity, producing the most essential item to have now and during an emergency: clean, crystal-clear water.
A new water purification device from 4Patriots is the Patriot Pure water filter pitcher. Holding up to one gallon of water and featuring a filter that lasts for 150 gallons, it filters fluoride, dangerous chemicals and radiological contaminants.
In addition to complimentary shipping, those who purchase the Alexapure Pro water filtration system also receive a credit card-sized steel survival tool featuring 11 different functions, as well as a hardcopy book, “The Water Survival Guide.”
They are also able to acquire the Alexapure Go Bottle (priced at $47), which features the same advanced engineering of the Alexapure Pro and which can filter 300 gallons of water, can be stored in a backpack or bug-out bag, and is ideal for camping, hiking, biking or any other outdoor activities.
Also available from Water4Patriots is the Survival Spring ($24.95), a nine-inch long, two-ounce straw made of BPA-free, food-grade materials that can filter up to 300 gallons of water and can easily be carried anywhere.
Water4Patriots provides products that help people eliminate contaminants from their drinking water, including the Alexapure Pro tabletop water purifier, the Alexapure Pro Go Bottle, the Survival Spring straw and the Patriot Pure pitcher. Each product purifies contaminated water from virtually any source into clean, safe, delicious water.
