Canal Boat - - Abc Leisure Group -

ONE OF MY ini­ti­a­tions as CB Editor a while back was to drink some canal wa­ter. I was a tad scep­ti­cal that I’d sur­vive the ex­pe­ri­ence, but I did – for­tu­nately it had been fil­tered first...

Now Os­mio has also pro­duced a fil­tra­tion sys­tem to make canal wa­ter drink­able. It’s es­sen­tially a se­ries of ever-smaller fil­ters to clean wa­ter pumped out of a canal or river be­fore it goes in the tank, fol­lowed by an ul­tra-vi­o­let ster­il­i­sa­tion sys­tem, or a non-elec­tric al­ter­na­tive, be­tween the tank and tap to re­move any­thing else nasty that might still be lurk­ing, to make the wa­ter safe to drink straight from the cold tap.

It’ll cer­tainly do the job on any boat, but it’s a rel­a­tively large sys­tem to fit, so we reckon it would best suit big­ger boats and those cruis­ing abroad, but that’s not to say you wouldn’t fit it to any­thing smaller.
