1Overview

The RapidPure Intrepid Water Purifier Bottle is a lightweight and easy drinking package that provides safe and clean drinking water with considering protection in. In fact, this Purifier Bottle filters and purifies backcountry water against bacteria, protozoa, viruses, heavy metals, chemicals, sediment, pesticides, and micro-plastics.

In the coming lines, we list the RapidPure Intrepid Water Purifier features and performances like effectiveness, capacity, weight etc.

2Effectiveness

Based on their electrochemical charge, The RapidPure Intrepid Water Purifier is a personal water purification system able to remove 99.9999% of the waterborne bacteria and viruses.

Unlike hollow tube filters, The RapidPure Purifier is freeze proof even though its removal efficacy decreases after multiple freeze/thaw cycles. However for longer-lasting solutions for cold water purification, the Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter in combination with an Ultraviolet Katadyn Purifier are much more reliable and lightweight choice.
