The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is another one of those amazing personal water filters. It is a portable filter that I was able to purchase online from Amazon. It is supposed to be portable, and it will filter out all types of bacteria, including E.coli and Salmonella. It does not filter out chlorine, however.
The LifeStraw Personal Water Filter is a lot of fun to use and will make your life a lot easier (and sanitary) when camping. There is no filter that I know of that will filter out all of the bacteria that I can’t get rid of, like Salmonella, E. coli, and any other bacteria that may be in my drinking water. In addition, the filter is easy to use, looks awesome, and is reasonably priced and portable.
Unlike a lot of other water filters, the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter I tested here at DIY Home is a pretty decent filter. It is a relatively small filter that has a very small amount of chemicals in it and the price is very competitive. It will cost you about $10, which seems like a reasonable price for a small water filter. That said, I was surprised to see that it only costs about $5 on Amazon.
The filter I used for this review is also good for camping, and it only costs about 5 more on Amazon, but it has a very noticeable price increase compared to the $12 LifeStraw Water Filter I used for testing, which made me wonder if the new filter has a lower price tag. Overall, I am very impressed with the filter I used.
The fact that you can just put the filter in your water source and use it like a drinking vessel is very appealing. The idea that a water source can be used to make drinking water is pretty revolutionary and something that I have not seen implemented before, let alone used in a camping water filter.
That said, there are two downsides to the new filter. One is that the filter doesn’t provide enough filtration to filter out the chlorine which we’ve seen in the past in campers’ drinking water. The other is that there is still a chlorine taste in the water.
The new filter is currently only for use while camping. If you are planning on buying a water filter for yourself, I would recommend looking at the two options above. If you are thinking about getting one for your home then you will probably have to consider the water filter too.
I have to agree with this. If you have a home with a tank of water, and you cant see the tap, whats the point in checking the water quality?? The water is fine, the tap just sucks.
The new filter is similar to the water filter above, but it is smaller, lighter, and cheaper. The main difference is that the filter is for use while camping, and you will be able to add it to your tank of water at home. To use the filter, just fill a canister with tap water and the filter. Put it in your tank of water and make sure it is plugged in so no water runs out of the tank.
Lifestraw Personal Water Filter for camping is $25. The filter itself is $20. If you’re interested in using the filter at home, just fill it up with tap water and it will only cost you $20.
