A portable water ionizer is a must for travelers who often go to places that may have suspicious water quality, and these travelers surely do not want to get ill because of it. There are so many aspects including chemicals, physical material, and bacteriological elements that make the water unsafe to be used or even consumed. However, when dealing with water in foreign places, it would be too risky to just drink the water without enough precautions. So this is when a portable water ionizer becomes handy.
The principle of a portable water ionizer is just like other general water ionizers. The water output helps remove toxic materials that are contained inside your body. It also acts as your antioxidant formula. Ionized water produced by the portable ionizer is also able to add essential minerals that your body needs. One thing you should know, some portable water ionizers are made as a complement for the bigger plan, so you would not want to buy this. Purchase a standalone portable water ionizer.
There are several tips you should know before buying one. First, check the features of the unit. Usually, smaller unit have fewer functions, but that is not always the case. The point is you should always compare one unit with others. Second, pay attention to the weight of the ionizer. You surely want to carry the one that is as light as possible without sacrificing the functions. Although a heavier unit could mean more ionizing capabilities, do not feel discouraged. Always match with your need in the field.
There are several water ionizers that are equipped with water filters. A water filter is useful if you visit places that the water contains suspended matters or particles. This water is turbid. You may want to add a water filter on it. Those are several important tips that you need to put into consideration before you buy a portable water ionizer.
It was a rare clear, crisp, cold, winter day offshore Mbotyi in Pondoland, Eastern Cape province, South Africa (formerly Transkei).
The seas were unusually calm that day on the Indian Ocean. That wouldn’t last long, soon returning to howling winds, whitecap waves, and giant swells! Did I mention it was cold – on land, at sea, and in the water?!
We are four SCUBA divers in a small “rubber duck” inflatable boat with two powerful 110 hp four stroke outboard motors. Clive is captain, Carlos is divemaster, and Levi is deckhand.
We are hunting for sardines. It is the annual world famous “South African Sardine Run”, a mass migration of pilchard fish up the east coast of Africa.
Actually, we are not interested in the sardines but rather the predators they attract. Hungry bottlenose and common dolphins herd the long line of small sardines into compact groups called “bait balls”. Once a ball is formed, a feeding frenzy ensues. Dolphins, sharks, and birds feast on the dense pack of small fish.
An ultralight airplane is overhead, looking for the action. Sightings are radioed to us and off we go at breakneck speed, hoping to record some real action.
Sadly, our six or seven hours daily on the water entail mostly waiting, waiting, and waiting a little longer until we find the elusive sardine bait ball.
Entertaining us while we wait are migrating humpback whales. Some are a mothers with calves. Some are males traveling in small groups.
This day, there were few sardine sightings but the whales seemed to be everywhere! An unexpected bonus!
This video shows a humpback whale mother cow swimming with a calf. It shows an adult 40 ton whale on its back, slapping both its left and right fins on the water, then leaping entirely out of the water!
It seems that never before has a recording been made of an adult humpback whale leaping entirely out of the water! A very rare event, indeed.
Dolphins and even Great White Sharks have been seen flying out of the water, but this is a first for an adult humpback whale!
Note: I sometimes have to remind my northern hemisphere friends that although it is summer in July and blisteringly hot and dry in parts of America and Europe, in South Africa it is exactly the opposite! It is dark, cold, winter now! Did I mention that it is cold?
