Manufacturer's Description

The LifePack is easy to use. Simply put dirty water into the red port, and one sports syrup charge into the green port. That’s it. The water will be filtered by the advanced forward osmosis membrane as it is drawn into the LifePack’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 LifePack ensures you have safe water, anywhere on the planet.

Be assured safe drinking water wherever your travels take you with the LifePack Emergency Water Filter from Hero Water - a tried and tested method at turning questionable water into clean drink. Simply fill the bag with dirty water and mix in a 2-ounce bottle of sports syrup charge - a forward osmosis membrane filter attracts the pure water molecules to the electrolytes in the syrup which then pass through the pores of the membrane for filtered water that doesn't require pumping.
