LifeStraw Mission high-volume water purifier
How LifeStraw Mission works
LifeStraw Mission uses a highly efficient method of purification that requires no chemicals, batteries or moving parts. Water poured into the purifier moves down the tube, while being forced through narrow hollow fibers. Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers, but bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other contaminants are trapped inside and are flushed out by backwashing.
How to use LifeStraw Mission
LifeStraw Mission is easy to use and maintain. Users simply fill the dirty water reservoir with the cleanest water available, fold the top to seal it, clip around a sturdy tree branch, connect the hose to the bag and allow a few minutes for clean water to start flowing from the safe water outlet.
