About Olivia

Welcome everyone to my Portable Water Purifiers website. Cold, pure, water has been important to me ever since I was a wild little country girl playing my heart out at recess time and coming inside to wait my turn at the one water fountain that served a class of 60. There was nothing so delicious than that sweet cold water.

Years later, I was reminded of how precious accessible water was. A friend, Janey, and I were hiking the Appalacian Trail (Crawford Path Trail) one summer before graduate school. We packed up early from the Lake of the Clouds Hut, and set out for the Mount Washington Summit. That day, the winds were a relentless 65 mph and the temperature reached 70oC. Janey and I portioned the water, but had not thought to bring water purification tablets. We quickly ran low on water and became dangerously dehydrated. When I crawled over the Mount Washington summit I gratefully accepted a bottle of purified water and blissfully recalled that long ago day of my youth. 

Over the years, I have learned a lot about portable water treatment bottles and systems…and I want to offer others reviews and updates on these products.

My Water Story

My mother grew up in a world where a person could take a tin cup and drink from a cold stream on the way to school with little fear. Once electricity was brought to their family farm, they could upgrade from ice house to ice box. Mom always said that the best thing she loved about the modern world was ice water!

Now I came of age in a world where the word “parasite” was common. On field trips we were cautioned to NEVER drink from a stream. And ice could just be gotten just by pushing a button on the front of the refrigerator.

However, my children face a very different world. Water supplies even into the home are suspect. Clean, pure, water supply on the go are expensive and difficult to source.

Our Access to Pure Water has Changed

We have become a mobile, health conscious society. When we travel, hike, exercise, bike, pack lunches for the kids – we want to make sure we and the loved ones have fresh water.

But this isn’t always easy is it?

The $0.99 bottle of water that can be picked up at the corner gas station may have been sitting in the sun for weeks….and the water tastes like plastic (Yuk!). Water in the airport may cost as much as $4.00! Water at the cafe may taste like river water. And your daughter doesn’t want to carry around plastic bottles that will contribute to the 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic (250,000 tons!) that are already littering the oceans.

The world has changed since my mother’s world pre-electricity. So does the way we choose to obtain the water when we travel.

Pure Water – Safe Choices

Why choose a bottle of water from the corner market if the water contains more contaminants than a glass of water from the sink at work? It pays to know what you are putting into your body and what you are handing to those you love.

I will be looking at various water purifier choices you have for a life on the go. If you have any water purifier product experiences you would like to share, or if you have any questions I would love to hear from you.
