Author : Venkata Krishnan Rajagopalan

There are many different way of purifying water, but one of the best is the distilling process seen in many portable water purification systems. Water is needed by every life force on the planet, and a contaminated water source effects more than animals and humans who drink it, it can also contaminate plant life.

This means that vegetables and animals that you consume can be contaminated by impure water, this is why it's so important that your drinking water be as pure as possible. It's almost impossible to be sure that all the food you consume has not been contaminated by an unhealthy water source.

If you don't have a good drinking source of water, a portable water purification source may be necessary. These small systems often purify from 1 to 10 gallons of water at a time giving you a pure source for drinking and cooking. Usually these types of systems are not large enough for bathing water.

If you need a system for the whole household, look to a different type of water purification systems instead of a portable one. This can be a system that treats your water at the source before it comes into the home, or one that is just attached to the different faucets in your home.

A portable system has many uses and every household should have at least one. This can mean a simple system that will distill or purify one gallon of water at a time used in emergency situations, or a more complex system that is used on a regular basis.

It can be as simple as a dead animal in the water reservoir or a broken pipe allowing contamination throughout the system. Either way, the water is unhealthy to drink.

Having a portable water purification system on hand in your home for water emergencies today is just like having a flashlight and candles in your emergency home kit. Get one that will purify enough water to satisfy your family's drinking requirement for at least a day at a time.
