A water bottle containing an ultrafiltration system has been developed that can remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and all other waterborne pathogens without the aid of chemicals such as iodine or chlorine. The 6000 litre Lifesaver bottle, manufactured by Lifesaver Systems, also incorporates ‘Failsafe’ technology which, when the cartridge has expired, shuts the system off protecting the user from contamination.

“With the Lifesaver bottle there is no need for tablets, boiling, chemicals, tubes, shaking, scrubbing, waiting or effort. The Lifesaver bottle produces clean, sterile drinking water with no foul taste,” said Michael W. Pritchard, CEO of Lifesaver Systems.

One thought on “Ultrafiltration in a water bottle”

  1. I have used every type of filter/purifier on the market and none of them have been as effective and simple to use as the Lifesaver bottle. I have two bottles, one for home and one for travel. I noticed one of the prior reviewers remarked on his discolored well water remaining discolored once it was filtered through the lifesaver. While the lifesaver bottle will filter out all microbiologicals including bacteria and even viruses it will not filter solutions such as the saline from salt water nor will it remove all of the color that is associated with a solution. For example, if you run tea or coffe through the filter the result will be clean water but the color of the water will mainsome of tea coloring. Personaly, I have drank water from some bad sources such as the great dismal swamp and stagnant ponds and the result is always the same, clean, pure water.
