ÖKO Suggested Use
Extreme Filtration Straw
With a 0.1 micron absolute pore size it is one of the most advanced portable water filtration systems available in the market today. The filter has a lifespan of 100,000 liters so it virtually does not need to be replaced*. The system has been tested in EPA approved labs and shown to remove 99.9999% of the most common protozoa and contaminants such as cryptosporidium, giardia and a host of other contaminants including some viruses found in open water sources. All components are FDA compliant for food contact safety and the filtration media exceeds NSF/ANSI and EPA standards for such devices.
At 0.8 ~1L of water per minute, the system provides an amazingly fast performance given its ultra-microscopic pore size. A silicone hand pump is used to flush out
any remaining water from the filter and to clean and maintain the system for continued use.
The kit includes :
- Main filtration capsule with an astonishing 1000,000 gallon capacity so it will never require replacement*.
- A set of straw tubes and a silicone bite valve with a positive shut-off for easy, leakproof and safe hydration.
- Hand pump to clean the unit – includes a one way valve which may be used as a secondary nozzle.
