Made in Great Britain
What is LIFESAVER bottle
The LIFESAVER bottle is the World's first water bottle to remove all bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and all other microbiological waterborne pathogens without the aid of any foul tasting chemicals like iodine which is now banned substance within the EU. LIFESAVER complies with all British, US and European Drinking Water Regulations for Microbiological Reduction as tested and certified by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
Tested and certified
"The LIFESAVER' bottles were tested using micro organisms in far greater numbers than could ever be found in natural water sources. This is the worse-case scenario approach recommended by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and their guidelines have been used to draw up our own protocols for testing of all Microbiological Water Purifiers. As well as using modified tap water for our tests we use samples taken from a pond or stream as our challenge test water to simulate real-life situations as per EPA guidelines.
"Under the conditions of testing in our laboratory as shown in this report, our results show that the LIFESAVER bottle' removed all bacteria and viruses from a contaminated water source in excess of legal requirements and as such, complies with all British, US and European Drinking Water Regulations for Microbiological Reduction."

Water is weight - you can travel on light with Lifesaver bottle!
One of the heaviest things to carry around is water. On a hot day you need as much as 10 kilos of the stuff. Carrying a LIFESAVER bottle means this extra weight is no longer necessary. Use the LIFESAVER bottle to collect water from streams, rock pools, muddy puddles and dirty ditches. Travelling up the Amazon in a canoe of just on a gap year it is the ideal companion. It will also save you a bag load of money from the bottled water you no longer have to buy!
Travelling abroad - protect your family
Drinking water whilst abroad is hazardous at the best of times. Now you dont have to worry. Just take your LIFESAVER bottle with you. Fill it directly from a tap or other sources of water to protect you and your family from all waterborne diseases.
Travelling up the Amazon in a canoe of just on a gap year LIFESAVER is the ideal companion. It will also save you a bag load of money from the bottled water you will no longer have to buy! (Not to mention all that space in land fill you will be saving!!!!)
Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!
Whether it is flooding in the UK, hurricanes in America or contamination in the local water supply, safe sterile drinking water can be impossible to get hold of. Having a LIFESAVER bottle means you no longer need to worry. It will process up to 6000 litres of safe sterile drinking water. Give you and your family the certainty of supply with the LIFESAVER bottle.
The smallest bacteria are about 200nm (200 nanometers) in size, the smallest viruses are about 25nm. The holes in LIFESAVER membranes are 15nm so nothing is getting through.
LIFESAVER® bottle Unique Features
LIFESAVER 6000 bottle is fitted with a 6000UF replaceable cartridge. The 6000UF has a service rating of up to 6000 litres of water. The cartridge will remove bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and all other microbiological water-borne pathogens from your water (see performance data).
LIFESAVER bottle is fitted with a chew-proof non-tasting replaceable teat. Although it is chew-proof it will after time begin to wear. Unlike many other systems LIFESAVER bottle has been designed so that its teat can easily be changed.
Activated carbon filter
LIFESAVER bottle also comes with an activated carbon filter. This is made of high specification activated carbon block which reduces a broad spectrum of chemical residues including pesticides, endocrine disrupting compounds, medical residues and heavy metals such as lead and copper. It also eliminates bad tastes and odours from contaminates such as chlorine and sulphur. It is designed to last approximately 250 Litres.
As the cartridge approaches the end of its life the bottle requires a greater number of pumps to induce water to flow. When the bottle requires a significant number of pumps to induce water to flow this indicates that it is nearing the end of its life. When no more water can be induced to flow despite continuous pumping, the cartridge has expired and it is time to replace it.
Users of iodine and other foul-tasting chemical sanitizers will appreciate that LIFESAVER bottle does NOT use any chemicals.
It simply filters out all water-borne pathogens creating safe sterile drinking water - fast.
LIFESAVER bottle is designed not to over-pressurise. Over-pumping LIFESAVER bottle will cause the flip lid to bulge. If pumping continues, then the teat will open and release the water - this is a safety feature. Wound jetwash - Due to its unique pneumatic action, LIFESAVER bottle can be used to direct a pressurised jet of sanitized water directly onto a wound, jetting away debris and other contaminants. LIFESAVER bottle allows for levels of wound irrigation never before possible in the field.
Any position operation
LIFESAVER bottle has been designed to work at any angle and in any axis. This means that in effect it will work in any position. Not only are you able to drink from it at any angle, but fill mugs, water bottles, pans and other water storage vessels.
Filtration on demand
Filters water on demand rather than on collection, resulting in rapid scavenging of water in the field. With LIFESAVER bottle there is no time wasted filtering water at the point of collection or waiting for chemicals to work. Simply Scoop and Go. Just give it a few pumps and thats it, as soon as you open the teat clean drinking water begins to flow.
Pre-filter disc / scavenging sponge
LIFESAVER bottle is supplied with a pre-filter disc. This protects the membranes from objects such as gravel, sand, sticks and mud, prolonging the life of the LIFESAVER cartridge. Your pre-filter disc may also be used as a sponge. Use it to soak up water from those hard to reach areas like cracks in rocks or shallow puddles.
LIFESAVER systems have developed instructicons. These unique icons have been designed to be universally understood. Instructicons use no words or numbers, just simple, easy to understand icons.
