Manufacturer's Description

The X-Pack provides up to 55 liters of clean drink from nearly any surface water source over a 10-day period. Use nearly any water source to generate clear drink. Purity levels are comparable to reverse osmosis systems, and the filter meets EPA standards for the removal of biological pathogens (viruses, bacteria, cysts). Used by soldiers to drink the floodwaters in New Orleans.

How it works

The X-Pack is simple enough for a child to use. Just put dirty water into the red port, and one sports syrup charge into the green port. The water will be filtered by the advanced forward osmosis membrane as it is drawn into the X-Pack's inner chamber. When the process is complete, simply pour the clean drink out and restart the system. No purifying chemicals are required, nor is any power input needed other than the sports drink syrup charges that drive the filtration process by osmosis. The X-Pack will reduce water logistics by a factor of 15, and provide safe, hassle-free fluids from even muddy sources without clogging.
