LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier
The LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier is a large-volume water purification system designed to provide families with safe, clean drinking water.
Useful in emergency situations and small enough to bring to the campsite, the Family 1.0 is able to purify 18,000 L (4,750 gal.) of water. By filtering down to an astonishing 0.02 microns in size, it removes 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of protozoan cysts, and even 99.999% of viruses. Using highly efficient hollow fiber technology, it forces water through narrow fibers under high pressure, trapping contaminants in the fibers and allowing clean water to exit through tiny pores.
The Family 1.0 filters enough water to supply a family of four or five with clean drinking water for up to three years. Made of durable plastic, it doesn't require electrical power, batteries, or replacement parts, and because it doesn't use chemicals, there's no after-taste. It also includes an easy-to-clean pre-filter and purification cartridge. Features a flow-rate of 9 to 12 liters per hour. All raw materials are US FDA compliant.
