Fits only the Lifesaver Cube. This cartridge filters 5,000 liters/1,320 US gallons of water and is foil sealed in aluminium barrier foil for an extended shelf life of 10 years.
Extended shelf life is due to the aluminium barrier foil which has a water vapor diffusion rate that is 80 times slower than standard packaged polyethylene. The aluminium sealed package acts as a barrier to prevent water vapor from entering the pack and it performs the same protection in reverse as it retains the glycerine within the hollow fiber membranes.
Tested by Independent Test House to meet adaption of NSF Protocol 231
Includes Failsafe – an automatic indicator when the cartridge needs replacing
Intuitive to use – FILL with water. PUMP the cube. DRINK clean water.
No measuring, wait times or unpleasant distaste that you get with using chlorine or chlorine dioxide
Reduces turbidity of glacial, cloudy or muddy water
Manufactured in the UK
Product materials and water effluent both BPA and BPS free

The LifeSaver Cube cartridge is a microbiological water filter that uses ultra filtration technology to filter out viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites from contaminated water sources. LifeSaver technology filters out bacteria to a minimum of Log 6 (99.9999%), viruses to a minimum of Log 4 (99.99%) and cysts to a minimum of Log 3 (99.9%) as specified by NSF Protocol 231, based on recommendations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
NSF/ANSI standard microbial removal claims are 99.9999% or greater for bacteria, 99.99% or greater for virus, and 99.9% or greater for parasite cysts.

* Tested by BCS laboratories issued 18/02/16 based on an adaption of NSF/ANSI P231 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.
