  • Hollow-fiber filter membrane offers a flow rate of 9 - 12 liters per hr.; simply fill the blue bucket with water and hold it or hang it above a container you want to fill
  • Water passes through the 3 ft. long blue PVC hose and gravity creates sufficient pressure on the membrane cartridge to reach the high flow rate
  • 0.2-micron filter physically removes 99.9999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; removes 99.9% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium
  • Also removes 99.99% of viruses, such as Hepatitis A
  • Hollow-fiber filter is rated to purify up to 18,000 liters of water over its lifetime; that's enough to supply a family of five with clean drinking water for up to 3 yrs.
  • Requires no electrical power, batteries or replacement parts
  • Easy-to-clean 80-micron prefilter inside the blue water bucket removes larger particles before they reach the filter
  • LifeStraw Family Gravity Purifier has a backwashing bulb on the side that makes cleaning the hollow-fiber membrane simple
  • For every LifeStraw product sold, one student in Kenya receives clean water for a year thanks to the donation efforts of the North American distributor, Eartheasy
  • Eartheasy's goal is to provide clean water to 500 schools in Kenya in 2014 through the donation of large community filters
