LifeStraw® Family 2.0 is the next generation of the high-volume award winning LifeStraw® water filter range. It converts microbiologically contaminated water into clean, safe drinking water, filtering up to 30,000 litres of EPA-quality water, enough to supply a family of five with clean drinking water for three to five years.
LifeStraw® Family 2.0 is a durable, tabletop version of LifeStraw® Family. It includes a large dirty water storage tank and built in safe storage container with tap.
LifeStraw® Family 2.0 uses advanced hollow fibre technology. Water is forced through narrow fibres under high pressure. Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibres, and deposits into the safe storage container. Viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and other contaminants are trapped inside the hollow fibres and are flushed out by backwashing. This is a highly efficient method of filtration.
NOTE: Water from the red container should never be consumed.
