Did you know that almost all water filters out there claim to have passed the NSF231 Water Purification test- BUT that there are 2 levels of this test and passing the first part is a no-brainer? The first part of the test uses Tap water, and as long as nothing bad starts growing in the first number of hours- you pass. The Lifesaver Systems have passed a much more rigorous test that rechecks the water multiple times over nearly 11 days, and starts with much dirtier water. See the testing certification here.
A robust and portable water filter capable of delivering up to 10,000 litres of clean water for group use. The LIFESAVER jerrycan holds up to 18.5 litres at any one time and is designed to support those with a greater demand for clean water such as groups expeditions, people embarking on overland travelling or those setting themselves up for off-grid living. The LIFESAVER jerrycan was designed to store and carry dirty water, once water is cleaned there is risk of recontamination. With the jerrycan, just filter water when you want to drink it.Filter watered can be used for drinking, washing and cooking. No need for bad tasting chemicals such as chlorine or chlorine dioxide. If you need Water Filtration due to a natural event like an Earth Quake or Hurricane- this unit can take care of your family and friends. A key Lifesaver Feature is that it stops dispensing water when the filter cannot clean any additional water- so no chance of getting bad water.
LIFESAVER microbiological water filters use ultra filtration technology to filter out viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites from contaminated water sources. LIFESAVER water filters meet an adaption of NSF Protocol 231 based on recommendations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). LIFESAVER bottles filter bacteria to a minimum of Log 6 (99.9999%), Viruses to a minimum of Log 4 (99.99%) and Cysts to a minimum of Log 3 (99.9%).
These are New Versions manufactured by Icon LifeSaver. You cannot buy a better water filtration system.
