The LifeStraw personal water filter from Water4Patriots removes 99.999 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites
Nashville, United States / ACCESSWIRE / August 8th, 2014 / Water from Lake Erie that was negatively affected by toxins from algae was recently declared off-limits to residents of Toledo, the fourth largest city in Ohio. More than 400,000 people in Toledo and its suburbs – plus some in a few areas in southeastern Michigan – were told not to drink tap water or use it for brushing their teeth, bathing or washing their clothes, according to ABC News and many other media outlets.
This is the second major water contamination crisis of the year in the U.S. Back in January, approximately 300,000 West Virginia residents were told not to use their water for 10 days following a chemical spill.
In the event of a future disaster that results in the contamination of local water supplies, people may need a way to purify water from those contaminants. The LifeStraw personal water filter from Water4Patriots may not be able to free water of toxins and chemicals, but it is the world’s most advanced water filter, removing 99.999 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites, and providing the user with crystal-clear, life-giving water when no clean drinking water is available.
LifeStraw Has No Chemicals or Moving Parts
This compact device, which can be carried anywhere, weighs only two ounces. It contains no chemicals and no moving parts, and requires no electricity or batteries.
In just one month after being made available to the public this spring, sales of the LifeStraw reached 13,259. Together, those LifeStraws have the potential of turning 3.5 million gallons of contaminated water into pure drinking water.
Pores within tubes inside the straw allow water to pass but prevent contaminants larger than 0.2 microns from flowing through. The LifeStraw filters up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water without iodine, chlorine or other chemicals.
First introduced in 2005, the LifeStraw was field tested by approximately 4.5 million people and used around the world under extreme conditions for humanitarian relief. Now available in the U.S., it has met EPA standards for water filtration and was a Time magazine invention of the year winner.
The LifeStraw can be purchased for $24.95 (plus $4.95 shipping and handling). Two LifeStraws sell for $39.95 (plus $4.95 shipping and handling), while four LifeStraws and a variety of bonuses are available for $79.95 with no shipping charge.
“In addition to providing clean drinking water no matter where one is, the LifeStraw gives peace of mind,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots, which provides products that help people become more self-reliant and independent. “When a crisis occurs, people will have clean drinking water, even if all the surrounding water is contaminated. With the LifeStraw, people can be prepared no matter what happens.
“As seen recently with droughts in the Southwest and West, the chemical spill in West Virginia, storms such as Hurricane Sandy, and now the toxins in water from Lake Erie, clean drinking water can be gone in the blink of an eye. With the LifeStraw, there is a smart, long-term survival plan in place.”
