LifeStraw® Family is the award-winning and internationally recognized water filter and point-of-use microbiological water purifier capable of removing viruses, bacteria and parasites to protect against waterborne diseases.

LifeStraw® Family provides up to 4750 gallons or 18000 liters of water, enough to supply a family of five with clean drinking water for up to three years. It's useful to have at home to purify contaminated tap water in the event of boil water advisories or emergency situations.
You can rely on the LifeStraw® Family to purify water from any freshwater source near your home.

Lightweight and portable, LifeStraw® Family is the perfect for point-of-use water filtration while travelling or camping in remote areas. It makes filtering water a breeze at base camps or at expeditions.

The LifeStraw® Family uses advanced hollow fiber ultra-filtration technology. Water is forced through narrow fibers under high pressure. Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers, but bacteria, viruses, parasites and other contaminants are trapped inside the hollow fibers and are flushed out by backwashing. This is a highly efficient method of filtration.

How it works
  The feed water bucket (2 liter capacity) is filled with water

  The 80-micron textile is pre-filter (inside the feed water bucket) removes coarser particles and is easy to clean

  Water passes through the meter-long long PVC hose and gravity creates sufficient pressure on the membrane cartridge in order to reach a high flow rate

  Ultra filtration takes place in the hollow fiber membrane cartridge – a pore size of 0.02 microns retains bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fine dirt particles

  The blue tap is turned to release purified water

  Backwash the membrane by squeezing the red backwash bulb 3 times with both taps closed and then releasing the dirty water from the red tap. Water from the red tap should never be consumed.
