How does a Miox purifier work?

When you are hiking or camping, you can never tell how clean the water is by looking at it. Remember that any water you encounter in nature is likely contaminated by animals, not to mention other humans. Don’t let a stray microorganism ruin your outdoor adventure. Instead, prepare for hiking water purification by bringing a compact method of water disinfection.

Why Try Miox?
A mixed oxidants water purifier, known as a Miox, is an excellent, compact way to make water safe to drink during a hiking or backpacking trip. A mixed oxidants purifier works by using a small amount of salt and an electric charge to cause a chemical reaction that kills viruses and bacteria. You can find a Miox purifier that is the size of a small flashlight and runs on camera batteries, making it an ideal choice for hiking water purification when weight and space are at a premium.

Visit your local Sun & Ski Sports shop for expert advice about water treatment and hydration while hiking or backpacking.
