Product Description

LifeStraw® Community is a high-volume point-of-use water purifier with built-in safe storage that provides safe drinking water for community, educational and institutional settings. It prevents waterborne disease such as diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, worms, and cryptosporidiosis.

How it works

How it Works

  • 25 litres of untreated water is poured into the top of the unit, also called the dirty water container.
  • The pre-filter removes coarse particles larger than 80 microns.
  • The ultra filtration hollow-fibre membrane cartridge, located inside the main dark blue body of the filter, and then stops all turbidity particles and pathogens larger than 20 nanometres (including all bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts). Particles and microbes larger than 20 nanometres stay on the dirty side of the membrane and clean/purified water passes through the membrane.
  • Purified water can be collected from any of the four taps.
  • The backwashing handle allows semi-automatic backwashing; when it is pulled down and released, pathogens and dust particles on the dirty side of the membrane are lifted by backpressure and then flushed out into the red backwash container.

NOTE: Water from the red container should never be consumed.

Recent Projects and Users

Lifestraw Community

In 2014, Vestergaard launched the LifeStraw® Follow the Liters program to harness the power of consumers to make an impact. Under this program, for each consumer purchase of a LifeStraw® product, one school child in a developing country is provided with safe water for an entire year. This is made possible because a portion of the funds from sales is used to supply LifeStraw® Community water purifiers to the schools.

This year, They are making an impact in Alwar, Rajasthan .
