LifeStraw Steel Personal Water Filter

The LifeStraw Steel personal water filter enables users to drink water safely from most contaminated water sources. LifeStraw Steel uses a 2-stage filtration technolgy.  Stage 1 reduces Chlorine, bad odor, taste and organic matter like pesticides, herbicides, ets.  Stage 2 removes all the "bugs" that make you sick like Crypto and Giardia.  This filter is ideal for emergencies such as flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. LifeStraw is also ideal for campers, backpackers, boaters, fishermen and day hikers who wish to travel light and drink directly from rivers, streams or lakes. Because LifeStraw is lightweight and compact, it is also great for travelers who do not want to rely on the quality of local water.


LifeStraw is one of the most advanced low cost personal water filters available today. An excellent lightweight and compact water filter for emergency bugout survival kits. Filter surpasses rigorous EPA  standards for filtering E. Coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium cysts. Since 2005, LifeStraw has been used in developing countries to assist in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals for clean drinking water.

What LifeStraw removes/filters:

LifeStraw filters down to an incredible, 0.2 microns in size! This removes virtually all the bacteria (99.9999%) and protozoa (99.9%) from contaminated water, and reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering out suspended particles.

Bacteria removed include:

  • Escherichia coli,
  • Campylobacter,
  • Vibrio cholerae,
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa,
  • Shigella
  • Salmonella

Protozoa removed include:

  • Giardia lamblia ("Beaver Fever")
  • Cryptosporidium Parvum
  • Entamoeba histolytica.

(Note: The LifeStraw does not remove heavy metals or viruses, and will not desalinate water).

Specifications:

  • Length: 9 inches
  • Width: 1 inch
  • Weight: 4.4 ounces
  • Construction: Food grade stainless steel. Meets US Food and Drug Administration regulations and standards
  • Capacity: filters up to 264 gallons (1000 liters) under ideal conditions. Silty and muddy water will substantially shorten the effective life of the filter, the same as with all other filters.
  • Carbon Capsule: 26 gallons (100 liters).  The carbon is replaceable
  • Shelf Life:  Indefinite.  Do not allow filter to freeze.  Any filter that freezes should be discarded and no longer used.

 

How to use:

The patented LifeStraw is a small tube with specialized filters inside. Place one end in unfiltered water (a glass, water bottle, river, or puddle), and suck the resulting clean water up through the top. Anyone who can use a drinking straw can easily use a LifeStraw. After each filter use, blow air back through filter to remove excess remaining water in filter.

LifeStraw for Travel & Backpacking:

Because the LifeStraw is so small and lightweight, it’s great for travel overseas in countries with unreliable drinking water. If you’ve ever been sick while travelling, you know the importance of drinking filtered water! Make sure to drink all water through the LifeStraw.

LifeStraw for Hiking & Camping:

Access to clean water is critical while hiking. LifeStraw accomplishes the same thing as other filters, but does it at just a tenth of the weight. If you’re ultra-light hiking, this is a must. At only 4.4 oz, it is a very light way of filtering water while on the go. If you consume the recommended 3-4 liters of water per day while hiking, LifeStraw could last you for over 200 days of hiking. If you’re in a rush, there’s no need to stop and filter water by the lake. Just scoop your water bottle full, and sip from it as you walk. Or, dip the end of the straw right into the lake and drink until you’re hydrated.

LifeStraw for Emergency Preparedness & Survival:

In light of recent natural disasters, many people are realizing they cannot depend on their city water during an emergency. A water filter that’s lightweight, easy-to-use, and portable is important to have in your emergency preparedness kit. Buy a LifeStraw for each member in your household - it's a low-cost investment in security.

LifeStraw has received significant accolades since 2005. Time Magazine named LifeStraw the “Best Invention of 2005.” In 2008, it won the Saatchi and Saatchi Award for “World Changing Ideas”. Esquire called it the “Innovation of the Year.” And Forbes noted that LifeStraw is “one of the ten things that will change the way we live.”

History:

Their core business model is centered around corporate social responsibility, and they help countries reach their United Nations’ Millenium Development Goals with products designed to prevent vector- and water-borne diseases.
