Drinking Distilled Water? Use the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter to ensure you drink clean water no matter where you are. This revolutionary new product has to be one of the most important developments the world has seen in recent years. Rather than drinking distilled water, it is now possible for you to enjoy clean, fresh water that contains no contaminants.
How it works
Using hollow fiber membranes, the LifeStraw filters impurities out of water and ensures that contaminants are filtered down to 0.2 microns. What’s more is no chlorine or iodine is used, which means you should expect no horrid aftertaste. Another impressive benefit is that you do not have to wait for the LifeStraw to get to work, you just suck on the straw and it filters the water automatically.
Stop drinking distilled water
Although you may have become used to drinking distilled water, it can be heavy to carry around. Distilled water is widely available, but it’s not always easy to take as much water as you need on a trip out. This is where the LifeStraw can help as it’s lightweight and it will last for a long time.
Up to 1,000 liters
It is now possible for you to enjoy drinking up to 1,000 liters of clean water (That’s about 264 gallons). Once you have started to reach the 1,000 liter limit you will start to notice that the water takes slightly longer to get through the filters. This is an indication that you need to replace the LifeStraw with a new one.
Puddles and streams
Unlike the Culligan, this product has been made so you can enjoy drinking water from puddles and streams. It is not suitable for salty water or water that has been contaminated with chemicals, viruses from human sewage or minerals. Therefore you should make sure that you only use this product when drinking from streams or puddles. If you can, make sure you drink from fast flowing streams as the water is likely to be cleaner and fresher too.
Great for emergencies
If you go out walking, camping or hiking, you probably have some emergency equipment with you just in case. This is where LifeStraw can come in and help you. In case you find yourself lost or trapped somewhere, you will be able to drink clean filtered water from a nearby stream or puddle. This makes the product ideal for emergency situations, but it has also been used and is currently being used as part of humanitarian relief projects where clean water is unavailable.
Even though streams and puddles may look like they contain clean water, they often don’t. Unless the stream is fast moving, chances are it will contain some pollution. This is why it’s essential that you carry the LifeStraw with you so you can drink clean water, no matter where you are. The environment may not be one you are used to, and you may need to look for water in order to survive. In emergency situations, being able to drink clean water could mean the difference between life and death.
How to use the LifeStraw
- Take your new LifeStraw and undo the top and bottom caps
- Insert the bottom of the straw into contaminated water
- Let the straw sit in the water for thirty seconds to that it can make its way up the membrane
- Suck the straw quickly five times so the water is able to get flowing
- From three to five seconds later you should be able to enjoy clean water
- If you’re drinking from water and the flow stops, remove the LifeStraw from the water and blow down it. This should help to get rid of any blockage.
- Once you have been out hiking/walking/camping etc and you’ve used the LifeStraw you will need to make it clean once more, do this by blowing air back down the straw to get rid of the water
- Shake the straw so excess water is removed, and place the caps back on
Meeting EPA standards
The LifeStraw meets EPA standards, which means that it has passed rigorous tests to ensure that it works well. In fact, the assessments that were carried out to determine its efficiency were undertaken during harsher conditions than those set out by the EPA, proving that the LifeStraw will work well to give you up to 1,000 liters of clean water.
