There has been considerable debate regarding whether bottled water is any less likely to be contaminated than tap water. There are also questions regarding where the water comes from that ends up in bottles. —
Regardless, bottled water has expiration dates, as reported recently by Readers Digest. While the water itself might have been fine to drink in its original condition, the plastic that the bottles are made of can eventually leach into the liquid, potentially causing a serious health hazard.
“Spending money on bottled water when you can get virtually the same thing from your tap has never made a whole lot of sense to me,” 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.
“And it becomes even more questionable when you factor in the possibility of water being compromised by the very container it is sold in. People are better off making a one-time purchase of a water purification system that will remove contaminants from their tap water.”
Baler’s company offers the Alexapure Pro tabletop water purifier, which is 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 out 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 such as those found in Flint’s water using only gravity, producing the most essential item to have now and during an emergency: clean, crystal-clear water.
“Fewer than 50 percent of the U.S. population are confident in their tap water, and confidence in bottled water can’t be all that much different,” Baler said. “Contaminants are being found in water all across the country. It’s time that people do something to protect themselves.”
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 and the Survival Spring straw. Each product purifies contaminated water from virtually any source into clean, safe, delicious water.
