MIOX® Purifier EPIU Copy


General info: The MIOX Purifier represents a revolution in water treatment. Developed in conjunction with the U.S. military, it offers unrivaled ease of use and reliability for purifying large volumes of water, making it ideal for outdoor recreation, travel, and disaster preparedness. Its also ultralight, compact, and easy to usewith no pumping or iodine required. And since the MIOX Purifier needs only common camera batteries and salt to operate, its maintenance-free, delivering more water, more easily than any purifier ever before.


How it works: Modeled after a high-tech municipal water-treatment system, the MIOX Purifier works by creating brine out of untreated fresh water and salt, then passing a small electrical charge through the solution, which results in a powerful dose of mixed oxidants (MIOX). This cocktail is poured into untreated water, inactivating viruses, bacteria, Giardia, and Cryptosporidia (which even iodine doesnt kill), and leaving you with safe, purified water.
