Most backpackers carry about 2-3 liters of water with them at a time, which means if they’re going out for more than a day, they’ll need to collect new water in the field.
While glacial mountain springs and streams conjure up images of pure water, what hikers can’t see in their water can harm them.
Help your customers make sure the water they drink in the backcountry is clean and safe by reading our latest Retail College chapter on how to sell water filter and treatment options.
Learn about the dangers of protozoa, bacteria and viruses, the difference between filtering and treating water, and which practices are best in certain situations.
A printed version of this digital flipbook was mailed to more than 1,000 specialty retail shops in April and it is one in a series of special Retail College How To Sell chapters the SNEWS team produces.
If you would like your store's name added to our mailing list to receive future training chapters, or if you are a manufacturer and would like to find out how you can work with SNEWS in producing a future "How To Sell" guide, contact our sales and marketing director, Elizabeth Averbeck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
