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.

  • Enhanced estimated lifetime filtration capacity of 30,000 litres
  • Filter removes virtually all bacteria (99.9999 percent), protozoan parasites (99.99 percent) and viruses (99.999 percent) that can contaminate water
  • Reduces turbidity (muddiness) by filtering particulate matter larger than 0.02 microns
  • Made of durable plastic
  • Doesn’t require electrical power, batteries or replacement parts
  • Uses hollow fiber technology which meets the standard for the “highly protective” category of safe water interventions by the World Health Organization
  • Built-in safe storage container with tap
  • Easy backwash cleaning system

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.

  1. The 80 micron textile prefilter removes coarser particles and is easy to clean.
  2. Dirty water storage tank has a 5 litre capacity.
  3. Backwashing of the membranes is done by pressing down on the cleaning lever. Dirty water flows to the small red tank. The dirty water should then be discarded.
  4. Ultra filtration takes place in the membrane cartridge – a pore size of 20 nanometre retains bacteria, viruses, parasites and fine dirt particles.
  5. Filtered water collects in the safe storage tank, which has a capacity of 5 liters. The storage tank can be opened for cleaning.
  6. The durable, field-tested tap provides and easy outlet for purified water.

NOTE: Water from the red container should never be consumed.
