Lifestraw Personal is a convenient travel companion when you are not sure about the water quality of the destination or there is already too much weight in your backpack. The solid filter cleans 99.9999% of the bacteria in the water and 99.9% of the parasites. Thanks to its whistle shape, it is easy to drink directly from the lake, river or other water sources.
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. A long-lasting membrane microfilter will last up to 1,000 gallons (4,000 L) of water, that’s enough drinking water for an individual for over 5 years.
LifeStraw’s membrane microfilters are made of hollow fibre membrane technology – a similar technology used in kidney dialysis. These membranes are made of small straws that contain microscopic pores of 0.2 microns in diameter. Dirty water enters one side of the straws and clean water passes through the pores while bacteria, parasites, microplastics, dirt and other forms of turbidity are blocked and unable to pass through because they are too large. The result is safe drinking water flows into a clean chamber for drinking while contaminants are blocked.
