If you can always take clean water with you in sufficient quantities for a one-day picnic outdoors, even if you spend the night, then for a long trip of several days, you have to look for it on the spot or type along the road. Therefore, in order not to get any infectious disease, the water collected from dubious sources must be filtered and disinfected. This also applies to natural disaster areas where water supply is disrupted and natural sources are polluted. In order not to waste time on the manufacture of home-made filters, it is much more convenient, practical and reliable to purify water with industrial filters, for example, such as the Aquaphor Universal filter. In addition, you are unlikely to be able to achieve the same quality of filtration in a artisanal way..
Field filter for water purification Aquaphor Universal, application for field water purification, overview.
The marching universal filter Akvafor Universal is intended for the after-treatment of drinking water in domestic or water purification taken from open natural sources in the field. Cleans water from chlorine, organic compounds, heavy metals, oil products and other impurities. It practically does not affect the water hardness level, and also protects against bacteria and maintain high quality water purification even up to 120% of its resource. However, if water is purified from a natural reservoir (not from a city water supply), it must be boiled before use..

The manufacturer’s statement about the need for boiling water after filtration is somewhat surprising, but given the fact that this is not a membrane filter and disinfection of water in it is achieved by bactericidal additives, which significantly reduces the number of bacteria, but does not guarantee their complete absence, this requirement is quite clear and fair . The field filter Aquaphor Wagon consists directly of the replaceable bactericidal filter module AKVAFOR B300B and a set of nozzles and accessories. The filter is compact and easy to use. The filter resource of Aquaphor Universal is declared in 1000 liters for tap water and 250-300 liters for water from open natural sources. Productivity is 0.3 l / min, and the mass of the filter assembly is only 400 grams.
The process of water purification in the camp filter Aquaphor Universal.
A composite sorption material is used in the water purifier, including activated coconut charcoal and AQUALEN fiber sorbents with bactericidal additives. Water through inlet (one) gets into the internal channel (2), under pressure passes all filter media made in the form of washers and pours out through a tube fixed to the housing.
Polypropylene (3) preliminary mechanical filtration, water purification from suspensions and heavy metals.
Mixture (4) a number of components, which includes aqualen basic cleaning of microorganisms, chlorine, organics, heavy metals.
Polypropylene again (5) finish cleaning.
Using the adapter sleeve included in the kit, Aquaphor Universal is attached to any standard plastic bottle; the liter or one and a half liter bottle is most convenient to use. For ease of use, the filter kit includes a latch for attaching the discharge pipe to containers for already purified water.

Holding a plastic bottle, create pressure in it by pressing on the supercharger and begin the process of filtering water. After selecting the required amount of water, we reset the residual air pressure in the bottle by turning the blower valve. Following the manufacturer’s recommendations, after filtration, boil the water and only then use it for its intended purpose.
Water purification filter Aquaphor Wagon at home.
At home, the Aquaphor Universal filter is recommended to be used in case of possible bacterial contamination of water. That is, when the water does not go through a general preliminary treatment, or when there is a possibility of emergency bacterial contamination of the water, for example, a sewer pipe burst in your area.
The adapter sleeve to the water tap, also included in the filter kit, can be permanently located on the tap, and the filter element can be connected to it as needed.
