A robust and portable water purifier capable of filtering 20,000 litres/5,282 US gallons of clean drinking water, removing viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites instantly. The LifeSaver Jerrycan holds up to 18.5 litres of water at any one time and is designed to support those with a greater demand for clean water such as group expeditions, adventurers embarking on overland travel, families or those setting themselves up for off-grid living.
The LifeSaver Jerrycan was designed to store and carry dirty water. We recommend storing dirty water, either in the Jerrycan or in other storage containers, and filtering through the Jerrycan as and when clean water is required, to prevent recontamination of previously filtered water.
Filter water for drinking, for washing with the addition of the LifeSaver shower attachment and for cooking. No need for chlorine or chlorine dioxide.

Caring For your LifeSaver:
Once primed, keep the membranes of the filter hydrated by storing at least 1 inch/2.5 cm of water in the LifeSaver product at all times. Remove and discard the activated carbon filter from the Jerrycan and clean the Jerrycan. Keep the product sealed with the pump and tap in place and do not allow the membranes to dry out. Release pressure before storage by unscrewing the pump slowly until you hear a hissing sound. Storage temperatures should stay within 1°C/14°F and 50°C/122°F.
We recommend storing dirty water, either in the Jerrycan or in other storage containers, and filtering through the Jerrycan as and when clean water is required, to prevent recontamination of previously filtered water.
LifeSaver activated carbon filters come with a shelf life for up to 3 years. We recommend storing them in the packaging they arrived in or use an airtight container or plastic bag (dependent on the quality of the container/bag being fully airtight). LifeSaver activated carbon filters sealed in their aluminum barrier foil have a shelf life of 10 years from the date of sale.
LifeSaver Filters have a minimum 3 year guarantee from the point the customer purchases it from an approved retailer or channel partner, not from the date of manufacturer. In good storage conditions (out of direct sunlight and extremes of humidity and temperature) and in the original packaging the product shelf life can be extended beyond 5 years. LifeSaver Filters sealed in their aluminium barrier foil have a shelf life of 10 years from the date of sale. Unused, the minimum storage temperature is -10°C/14°F and the maximum storage temperature is 50°C/122°F.
If you will be flying with your LifeSaver, first release the pressure from the LifeSaver product. Unscrew the pump slowly until you hear a hissing sound. Hold on to the pump firmly whilst unscrewing. Drain off any water and re-seal ensuring the pump is screwed back in place. Pack securely in the hold or within hand luggage to protect the product from impact. Pour 1 inch/2.5cm of water into the vessel when arrived at your destination.
What Can't LifeSaver Remove?
LifeSaver Technology is able remove particles in suspension in water, not particles in solution. This means that some things will not be filtered out of your LifeSaver:
LifeSaver water filters are not suitable for filtering brackish or salt water
Pesticides and Heavy metals will not be filtered out. However, optional activated carbon filter removes chlorine, taste and odor
LifeSaver water filters are not suitable for grey water as they cannot filter out soaps and detergents in solution
LifeSaver water filters will filter out the microcystin (blue-green algae) bacteria but not the toxins and chemicals that the bacteria secretes in water
LifeSaver water filters will remove microbiological contamination from urine, however as there is a certain amount of salt which cannot be removed
LifeSaver is designed to filter water only and is not designed for filtering sugared or carbonated drinks, alcohol or any other liquids
