A DIY water-purification tool is now on sale at your local home
A DIY hydration device, which removes chlorine, water, and other contaminants from tap water, has been selling for $40 on Amazon.
The kit includes a water purification cartridge, a bottle cap, and a hose.
The device can remove chlorine, a potent disinfectant, from water, but it doesn’t remove other chemicals.
While the device is relatively simple to make, it has been met with backlash from consumers.
While some users have complained about its high cost, others have criticized its use of dangerous chemicals.
The new product, which is currently listed on Amazon for $20, has some limitations: the device can only purify water for one person at a time, and it’s only good for one water purifier at a given time.
The company behind the product says it’s now working on a replacement for the original product, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be a cheap alternative.
The original water purifiers have been making a bit of a comeback in recent years, thanks to the rise of the bottled water movement, which offers the same clean-drinking benefits of tap water.
There are also other cheap, but still effective, ways to purify your water, like water filters and bottled water.
If you’re looking for a cheap, convenient way to purification, this may be the one for you.
