Welcome to the Water Disease Prevention Supply Store!
This is a self-contained filtration system in a water bottle. Just carry it and the filter inside does the rest to protect you from waterborne diseases that can cause awful illnesses. If you are concerned about city water from the tap or country water from the stream, if you worry about water quality in old pipes at school or the office, this is a good solution. What is nice is that it filters out lead and other heavy metals as well as diseases.$59.95 on Amazon

There’s a little elbow grease involved as you need to use the squeeze pouch to push the water through the filter but at its current price of $19.97 it might be worth the extra work!$19.97 on Amazon
This is a SINGLE POINT test kit, testing for 10 different possible contaminants to your drinking water, including diseases and lead. Instead of fearing the tap, why not test it on a regular basis and if AOK just drink it worry free? This might be a good idea once per year for your kid’s school, and might not be a bad thing to do at home in the spring after heavy rains might push contaminants into the water supply. If you are near a farm and are worried about pesticides and diseases, it may be useful to also test in the summers.$34.96 on Amazon
