Water Purification - What You Need To Know

Whether you’re on your feet all day with a heavy backpack or just relaxing by the pool, it’s important to stay hydrated when you’re on holiday. But be careful, there’s a whole range of nasty bacteria you could catch by drinking or even just using contaminated water. Contaminated water is the cause of around 80% of all travel-related illnesses. Make sure you avoid illnesses like travellers’ diarrhoea, hepatitis A, typhoid and cholera by buying only treated water or by purifying the water you use yourself.
Unsure about it all? Don’t panic. We at Superdrug have set up a handy guide for you to help you stay safe using water while you’re away.
