THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND LIFESTRAW
HOW THE LIFESTRAW WORKS
All LifeStraw products start with advanced hollow fiber membrane technology. What the heck is that? Well, picture bundles of straws with microscopic holes in them, so small that organisms like bacteria, parasites, and even dirt and microplastics cannot pass through. Think of a super advanced spaghetti strainer or tea sieve.
- Ultralight and durable, the LifeStraw weighs less than 2 ounces (46 g) so you can pack it anywhere
- Long-lasting membrane microfilter lasts up to 1,000 gallons (4,000 L) of water – enough drinking water to last an individual for over 5 years!
- Be prepared with the ultimate survival tool, the LifeStraw has an unlimited shelf life and has been tested all over the globe to face the harshest conditions
To get the best filter life and far less filter cleaning use this simple rule. If the water looks clear, put it through your filter. Otherwise, pour the water thru a coffee filter or something similar to remove the large dirty particles from the water. It’s the large particles in the water that will clog your filter very quickly. If the filter is cleanable, frequent cleaning/scrubbing will also reduce the filter life. If the filter is a one use disposable filter dirty water will drastically reduce the amount of water you will be able to filter.
These features make the LifeStraw an ideal camping water filter, backpacking water filter and hiking water filter. Plus it’s one of the best water filters you can add to your survival gear, survival kit, bug out bag, 72 hour kit or emergency car kit.
