LifeStraw Personal Water Filter Review
There are some products that are so useful and cool that you just want to shout, “Here! Take my money!”
The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is one of those products. All levity aside, this is the most trusted name in water filtration devices.
Literally millions of people use this water filter. From humanitarian aid workers in the toughest environments in Africa to the outdoor enthusiasts in the US.
This is a product that every member of the family should have one of.
Let’s assume there’s a natural disaster and there’s massive flooding in the area. The water lines are damaged and so is the water treatment plant.
Now you’re in a situation where there’s either no water coming out of the faucet or if there’s water coming out, it’s contaminated with bacteria and other organisms. So, you have no drinking water, unless you have stored some water pouches.
I Already Have Stored Water, Why Would I Need This?
But what if your house has been flooded and your water stocks are damaged? What do you do?
You use the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter. That’s what you do.
All you need to do is fill the bottle with water and drink through the straw.
The filter will remove up to 99.99% of bacteria and protozoa. E-coli, salmonella, cryptosporidium and other bacteria are no match for the LifeStraw.
In fact, people in third world countries with very limited water sources are able to use the LifeStraw to drink water that they otherwise would not be able to consume. It’s that powerful.
As a prepper, if you have a LifeStraw Water Filter, you could camp by any lake or river and drink the water from there just by using the filter bottle. There will be much less hassle involved. If you wish, you could boil the water first and then use it with the filter.
How Much Water Can I Filter With It?
Each LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is good for up to 1000 liters (264 gallons) and the good news is that no batteries or chemicals are used. Isn’t that fantastic?
The product is lightweight and will easily fit into any bug-out bag. Even kids will be able to carry their own LifeStraw because it’s that light and portable. The attractive blue color will appeal to them too.
You’d think that such a fantastic item would be expensive… but it’s not. It’s very affordable. The goal of the manufacturers is to get the item into the hands of as many people as possible. If it was expensive, humanitarian organizations would not be able to provide it to the masses.
As a survivalist, there are some items that are a ‘must have’… items such as paracord, a first aid kit, etc.
But the truth of the matter is that the LifeStraw Water Filter is probably the MOST important of the lot because water sustains life. If you have no access to water, you will be desperate and most people will not last more than 3 days without water.
With the LifeStraw Water Filter, floods will not be a problem. If you can get to a raw water source, the filter will do the rest. This award-winning product deserves all the accolades it gets. Just make sure you get one for yourself and for each family member. Stay safe.
