What is the difference between a water purifier and a water filter?

A water purifier protects against protozoa, bacteria AND viruses. A water filter only protects against protozoa and bacteria. All RapidPure products are certified water purifiers and meet or exceed US EPA standards.


Why have water filters been more popular in past than water purifiers?

Historically filters cost less than purifiers and are effective, if limited, at what they do. Traditional purifiers, although providing better protection than a filter, cost considerably more than filters. They are also much slower and more complicated to use, are easily clogged, and difficult to maintain. RapidPure with its' new technology UltraCeram changes everything. Now you can purify water faster than filtering it, and as easily, as there are no chemicals, batteries, priming, pumping, or special maintenance. RapidPure purifiers offer much better value than a filter. They provide safer protection than filters, are 2 – 8 times faster, are as easy or easier to use, are priced competitively with filter systems, and can last as long or longer than filters.


Why is it important to protect against viruses?

Waterborne viruses, while not prevalent in North American waterways, do occur in 3rd world countries, and can quickly develop anyplace a natural or man made disaster, such as earthquakes, flooding or infrastructural damage, occurs.
