Don’t forget water softeners, in some area’s it’s against the law, so be sure to check your local laws and ordinances. Depending on where you live, you might need a water softener system so that it softens the water first and then filtrates it, otherwise it might ruin your water filtration system.
Portable Water Filtration for Travel
From what I read, this uses carbon filters but also membranes like reverse osmosis.
Whatever system you use, make sure it works, contact the company, talk to them directly, talk to others who are using it, have used it etc etc.
It might meet EPA standards or FDA standards but is that a guarantee that this product is 100% safe? No, there is no guarantee and I believe human beings deserve guarantees especially if their taxes are paying for it.
There is no one ethical government agency that has put their seal on anything, that says, this is 100% safe to use, you will not die etc etc so that you can feel confident when you purchase. So you will have to figure it out. Have many mini journeys, trial and errors until you figure out what water purification is the best for you and your family.
