Water filtration is probably the number one most important issue you need to address when putting together your emergency preparedness kits. You can survive up to 3 weeks without food but only 3 days without water. It’s a good idea to have several options for purifying water in your emergency kit. I have come across an AMAZING water filtration bottle that filters out even nanoparticle sized viruses! There are a few travel bottles on the market designed with filters that remove bacterial and chemicals but this is the first one I’ve seen that filters out viruses too. This is a huge deal!
This water filtration bottle was designed to send over to third world countries that have no clean water and there is also a page on their site you can donate a bottle to support victims struggling in the aftermath of recent natural disasters. This is one of the coolest products I’ve seen!
Check out the video below for a demonstration of the LIFESAVER® water filtration bottle by the inventor, Michael Pritchard.
The award winning LIFESAVER® bottle is the world’s first all-in-one ultra filtration water bottle. Its unique design and revolutionary approach to water filtration has made way for a paradigm shift in how people drink. Now anyone, anywhere can be confident they are consuming only clean, pathogen-free water.
The Lifesaver bottle filters all microbiological contaminates including Cholera Bacterium and H1N1 (Swine Flu) without chemical additives.
Here are some of the Features I Pulled From Their Website:
Chew-proof nozzleLIFESAVER® bottle is fitted with a chew-proof non-tasting replaceable nozzle. Although it is chew-proof, it will after time begin to wear. Unlike many other systems, LIFESAVER® bottle has been designed so that its nozzle can easily be changed.
Activated carbon filterLIFESAVER® bottle also comes with an activated carbon filter. This is made of high specification activated carbon block which reduces a broad spectrum of chemical residues including pesticides, endocrine disrupting compounds, medical residues, and heavy metals such as lead and copper. It also eliminates bad tastes and odors from contaminates such as chlorine and sulphur. It is designed to last approximately 250 Litres.
LIFESAVER® cartridgesLIFESAVER® bottle is fitted with either a 4000UF or 6000UF replaceable cartridge. The 4000UF has a service rating of up to 4000 litres of water and the 6000UF up to 6000 litres. The cartridge will remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi, and all other microbiological water-borne pathogens from your water.
FAILSAFE technologyAs the cartridge approaches the end of its life, the bottle requires a greater number of pumps to induce water to flow. When the bottle requires a significant number of pumps to induce water to flow, this indicates that it is nearing the end of its life. When no more water can be induced to flow despite continuous pumping, the cartridge has expired and it is time to replace it.
No chemicalsUsers of iodine and other foul-tasting chemical sanitizers will appreciate that LIFESAVER® bottle does NOT use any chemicals.
It simply filters out all water-borne pathogens creating safe sterile drinking water—fast.
Over-pressurizationLIFESAVER® bottle is designed not to over-pressurize. Over-pumping LIFESAVER® bottle will cause the flip lid to bulge. If pumping continues, then the nozzle will open and release the water—this is a safety feature.
Wound jetwash Due to its unique pneumatic action, LIFESAVER® bottle can be used to direct a pressurized jet of sanitized water directly onto a wound, jetting away debris and other contaminants. LIFESAVER® bottle allows for levels of wound irrigation never before possible in the field.
Any position operationLIFESAVER® bottle has been designed to work at any angle and in any axis. This means that in effect it will work in any position. Not only are you able to drink from it at any angle, but fill mugs, water bottles, pans, and other water storage vessels.
Filtration on demandFilters water on demand rather than on collection, resulting in rapid scavenging of water in the field. With LIFESAVER® bottle there is no time wasted filtering water at the point of collection or waiting for chemicals to work. Simply ‘Scoop and Go’. Just give it a few pumps and that’s it, as soon as you open the nozzle clean drinking water begins to flow.
Pre-filter discLIFESAVER® bottle is supplied with a pre-filter disc. This protects the membranes from objects such as gravel, sand, sticks, and mud, prolonging the life of the LIFESAVER® cartridge.
Instructicons™LIFESAVER® systems have developed instructicons™. These unique icons have been designed to be universally understood. Instructicons™ use no words or numbers— just simple, easy to understand icons.
The LIFESAVER® bottle has a shelf life unopened of up to 3 years. Once the bottle has been used, then maintained correctly it could last for up to 5 years dependent upon storage conditions. Unused the minimum storage temperature is 14°F and the maximum storage is 140°F. Once used the operating temperature should be >32°F and the maximum operating temperature is 122°F. It is designed to maintain the same level of microbiological removal across its service life.
Can the bottle filter salt water?
The LIFESAVER® bottle will not filter out salts from the water.
Can the LIFESAVER® bottle convert urine into drinkable water?
The LIFESAVER® bottle will remove microbiological contamination from water. As such, it will remove viruses and bacteria from urine. It will not, however, remove the salts that urine contains.
How often do the filters need to be changed?
LIFESAVER® UF cartridges generally only need to be changed upon expiration. The 4000UF cartridge is rated to last for up to 4000 liters (1056 US gallons) of water and the 6000UF is rated to last up to 6000 liters (1585 US gallons). The Activated Carbon Block (secondary) filter, recommended for use in situations where chemical residues, heavy metals, or other endocrine system disruptive compounds are present, should be changed after 250 liters of use (66 US gallons).
