Here’s a clever product that’s about the size of a wine cork that will purify tap water. The GoPure Pod ($24.95) could be something you never leave home without, especially if you travel to places where clean drinking water is difficult to find. This revolutionary portable water filter just needs to be dropped into any water bottle before it immediately starts purifying tap water—so, water that’s already potable (see below)—through its patented PuriBloc technology. The GoPure Pod supposedly filters out dangerous impurities so you can know that the water you’re drinking is clean and safe (and tastes good). According to the company’s website (they sent me one to try out), one pod replaces 2,000 plastic water bottles, lasts up to six months, and can treat up to 264 gallons of water. They even sell a version for pets ($29.95).
Important: As reader Paul noted below, the GoPure Pod is “suitable only for potable water.”
