LIFESAVER LifeSaver Jerrycan 20K Liter Ultra Filtration (Multiple Colors)


The LifeSaver Jerrycan holds 5 gallons of water and packs ultra filtration (UF) technology. This rugged and portable jerrycan contains a built-in microbiological water purifier capable of filtering out viruses, bacteria, cysts, and parasites from up to 20,000 liters (~5,300 gallons) of contaminated water before the filter needs to be replaced.

Be prepared in the event of compromised water quality and confidently use water sources you encounter on a long journey. No need for chlorine or chlorine dioxide, just fill, pump, and drink!

The LifeSaver Jerrycan was designed to store and carry dirty water. The recommend strategy is to store dirty water, either in the LifeSaver Jerrycan or in other storage containers, and filter through the LifeSaver Jerrycan when clean water is required, to prevent recontamination of previously filtered water.

The filtration performance of the LifeSaver Jerrycan has been proven by passing compliance testing for NSF Protocol P248 Military Operations - Microbiological Water Purifiers. This exacting test requires effective removal of virus, bacteria and protozoan cysts as specified by the US Army Public Health Center (MEDCOM). See below for more details.

*Tested by BCS laboratories Issued 28/08/18 based on full NSF P248 Protocol. These units are tested with two different types of water to challenge the filtration capability beyond the standard use. All figures quoted are taken from the stressed challenge phase of the test imitating sewage contaminated water.

**Volume of water filtered by the product and flow rates dependent on the composition and turbidity of the feed water.

After first use, filter should be kept moist and protected from freezing.
