Lifestraw portable water bottle- A handy water filter for bag-packer
Posted on June 28, 2016 by Ghoomophiro
As we were packing our bags for our treks to Tungnath, like always, we were worried about emergency water, and then I was introduced to Lifestraw portable water bottles, which are on-the-go portable filters. We were surprised to experience their efficiency as the filter was able to remove water-borne bacteria by 99.9% from the waters of lakes, rivers or streams, that passed during our travel, thereby making the water safe to drink and since then it has become one of the must-have especially during our hiking and trekking trips. To test the quality of water filtered by Lifestraw, we used water from the pond, mud water, river water and ice, which later melted. Though water tasted little different due to various sources, but yes, it was clean enough.

The bottle doesn’t store filtered water. Instead, it filters the water as we drink water, which passes through the filter. Apparently, it requires the force of suction to clean the water.It uses the simplest filtration technology, where-in water is passed through several layers of extremely fine membranes. This filtration helps it to remove the virus, parasites by 99.9%. However, it is unable to filter sea water due to high dissolved salt content. It is made of BPA-free plastic known as Tritan which is being known for its ruggedness and hence bottle offers long term durability, especially in harsh climates. Due to its filtration process, the bottle does require replacement of filter, but it has the capacity to filter 1000L of water. In fact, a bottle does whatever is being promised at this reasonable price.
