LifeStraw Steel is an advanced version of the award-winning personal LifeStraw filter. This ultra-light and portable 2 stage personal water filter makes contaminated water safe to drink. It’s ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping, travel, and emergency preparedness. The straw-style filter lets people drink directly from streams and lakes or from any container. LifeStraw Steel features an advanced two-stage filtration process that removes 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, and 99.9% of waterborne protozoa, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium while also reducing chlorine and organic chemical matter, and removing bad taste and odor. LifeStraw Steel also reduces turbidity or muddiness, by filtering particulate matter larger than 0.2 microns.LifeStraw Steel is encased in a sleek and durable steel body that is just 9” long and 1” in diameter and weighs 5.6 ounces. It requires no electrical power, batteries or replacements parts. Throughout its life, LifeStraw will transform 264 gallons of contaminated water into safe drinking water. It will last for nine months if a person uses it to drink eight glasses of filtered water a day. At the end of its life, the flow rate will decrease until the LifeStraw stops pulling water through the filter. The activated carbon capsule will need to be replaced about every three months or 26 gallons.
