Clean water is vital to both physical and mental performance as well as for successful outdoor activities. A Lifesaver bottle is described as the world’s first water bottle that can remove 99.99% of bacteria, 99.99% of cyst, 99.99% of viruses, fungi, bacteria among other aquatic pathogens without using chemicals, power or UV light.
Its patented technology enables water to be filtered down to 15 nanometres, the smallest known virus in the world is 25 nanometres which means that the filtered water is almost free of any virus. Read more about the lifesaver bottle and survival gear on this site.
How the Lifesaver Bottle Works
A lifesaver bottle is a self-contained filtration system, unlike other filtration systems, there is no need for any hoses. Simply unscrew the base and fill the bottle with water by dipping it in the water source. After replacing the cap, pump the piston to filter the unsafe water and it is safe for drinking. This easy of operation is unmatched and very appealing.
A lifesaver bottle works through a 4000 ultra-filtration (UF) or 6000 ultra-filtration (UF) replaceable cartridge. This cartridge removes fungi, cysts, parasites, bacteria, viruses and other microbiological pathogens in water. It has a pre filter disk that protects the lifesavers bottle’s membrane from debris such as gravel, mud, sand and sticks giving the cartridge a longer life.
The bottle also has a carbon filter made from activated carbon block that can filter up to 1000 litres of water before the need for replacement. The activated carbon blocks removes any odor, taste, medical residues, pesticides, chlorine and metals such as lead and copper. However, a lifesaver bottle does not remove salt from the water.
What happens to the contaminants that are filtered out of the water?
The contaminants filtered out by the lifesaver bottle are left on the other side of the membrane. These contaminants can then be washed away with a front side wash or they can easily be removed by filling the bottle with water the emptying it.
What chemicals are used to clean the water?
As stated above, a lifesaver bottle filters water without using any chemicals. Unlike other filtration systems and other chemical sanitizers that have a foul odor and bad taste, a lifesaver bottle filters out the water pathogens without using any chemical producing sterile water that smells clean and tastes fresh.

Main benefit of using a lifesaver bottle • No need to carry multiple bottles of heavy water Water is a vital requirement at all points in our daily life and until the discovery of a lifesaver bottle, people carried many bottles of water to camping, hikes or to disaster stricken areas with no clean water.
With a lifesaver bottle, there is no longer a need to carry the multiple bottles of water, one lifesaver bottle can serve a large number of people who only need to collect water from rock pools, streams or even muddy ditches, fill the lifesaver bottle and after a few pumps, you will get clean water that is safe to drink.
With this lifesaver bottle, there is no need to worry or carry liters of water when going to a place that has dirty water.
