An emergency water filter can be very useful to treat rain water to make it healthy to drink during emergencies. Although rain water is supposed to be pure but before it reaches the ground, the rain will already be contaminated with chemicals that are floating around to use.
In most underdeveloped countries where drinking water is a high commodity, rain often comes handy where people will collect water during rain event through their roof gutters. In the developed countries, air pollution and other man-made events have made water from rain less desirable to drink. In fact, some of the poorest part of the world is no longer spared of air pollution which has resulted in scarcity of water. An effective emergency water filter can be very use in these areas.
