A water filter straw is a basic survival tool which can allow someone to drink straight from a natural water source safely. The straws are essentially small filters that promise to eliminate most bacteria and harmful parasites as you suck water through them. These are designed specifically for emergency water needs. Most straws have limits on how many gallons of water they can filter effectively. This can vary greatly from just a couple hundred to thousands. Some models can screw on to the opening of a standard water bottle. While most will fit comfortably in your palm, some are as small as the size of a regular straw. Smaller versions won’t filter as much water, but they tend to be less expensive and are easier to take on the go.
