The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping, travel and emergency preparedness.
The straw-style filter design lets you turn up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water into safe drinking water.
- LifeStraw is BPA free and completely safe to drink through
- If your LifeStraw has been used, and is then exposed to freezing temperatures, water inside can freeze and crack the filter. You may not see these cracks, so we recommend never letting it freeze once it’s been used. When camping at high elevations or freezing temperatures, be extra careful not to let it freeze
- LifeStraw is not dishwasher safe. The heat could warp the casing and possibly damage the filter. To clean, simply rinse with water, and leave uncapped to dry
- After every use, backflush your LifeStraw by blowing a breath of air back into the mouthpiece to purge all remaining water trapped within the filter. If you have access to clean water, suck some into the filter and backflush it again. Give it a few shakes and leave both ends uncapped to air dry at room temperature
- The LifeStraw can filter up to 1,000 liters (264 gallons). This would mean, if you used the LifeStraw every day, for all of your drinking water, it will last for approximately one year. If you just use it for travel and outdoor activities, it will last much longer than 1 year
