Travelling restricts your access to pure drinking water. Be it trips to mountains, sojourns in remote villages or roughing it out on the road, one cannot trust the ubiquitous tap water. In such situations, mineral water bottles become the only recourse; trustworthy but expensive, and definitely a non-biodegradable heap we leave behind.
But what if we could carry a lightweight water filter that fits on our bottles and can reduce chlorine and remove bacteria up to 99.9 per cent?
Niranjan Karagi’s NirNal, an advanced portable water filter device, does just that and more!
Niranjan, an engineering student from Belgaum, was playing football when he saw school students drinking from a potentially unsafe water outlet. To help such students access safe drinking water, Niranjan designed NirNal, a water filter that can be fitted on most PET bottles in the market.
Over the past couple of years, Niranjan has updated the technology and now, his portable device can not only remove about 99 per cent of bacteria from the water but also filter up to 300 ltr of water.
Using the water purifier is as easy as it gets. All you need is a narrow-mouthed bottle and fix the filter on the bottle like a cap. When you want to drink water, squeeze the bottle which makes the water pass through the filter. Your pure, potable water is ready!
The water purifier costs Rs 297 for a pack of three, and each filter is best used before 60 days from the day of use. Convenient to carry, easy to use and extremely efficient, this water bottle filter is a must for all your travel inventories.
