The award-winning LifeStraw filter technology still has space for improvement. Following a few new features, LifeStraw Steel provides fresh and clean water wherever you find yourself without the use of batteries, pumping or waiting. What’s different about it is the new 2-stage filtration system and a durable steel body.
LifeStraw Steell is designed for campers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. It filters out 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, 99.9% of waterborne protozoa, and even some chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers. The body is made from food-grade stainless steel, it’s only 9 inches tall and weighs just 5.6 oz.
The new LifeStraw can filter up to 264 gallons of water. This compact water filter uses a replaceable activated carbon capsule. The purpose of this capsule is to reduce chemicals such as chlorine and let you drink safely directly from water sources. What the capsule also does is eliminates the bad taste of filthy water.
When it reaches the end of its life, LifeStraw Steel will stop pulling water through and you’ll know when it’s time to get a new one. But you should know to replace the capsule every 3 months and clean it after each use, this will increase the lifespan.
To keep it cleaned, just blow a breath of air back into the mouthpiece after every use and leave the cap off until it fully dries. One more thing to remember is that LifeStraw Steel shouldn’t be used with ocean water, sea water or brackish water.
The founders of LifeStraw work on many social projects to help those who need fresh water the most. So, for every purchase, they will donate a year’s worth of fresh water to a school child in a developing community.
