Family Water Filter
The Family Water Filter is the perfect choice to deliver plenty of safe water for families or small groups as it will produce up to 2 litres (0.53 US gallons) of filtered water per minute.
Operation is so easy that small children and the elderly have no problem pumping the filter and that is in contrast to similar sized (ceramic cartridge) based water filters marketed for campers and hikers. As there are no ceramic cartridges in the Family Water Filter there is nothing to get clogged and no integral parts to replace.
(Spare seals are included)
The Family Water Filter automatically back flushes the internal filter mesh and since that is done during normal operation (with no need to disassemble) there is no danger of losing or damaging parts during the cleaning process.

What does log 6 reduction mean?
Scientists use a logarithmic scale. Log reduction stands for a 10-fold (or one decimal point) reduction in bacteria, meaning the number of live bacteria reduces by 90 percent for every step.Therefore a 6-log kill reduces the bacteria colony in water consisting of 1,000,000 bacteria to 1 bacterium after a 99.9999% reduction.

*Figures attained will depend on contaminated water quality and the unit is designed to handle water loaded with sediment, parasites and bacteria on a daily basis as a long term source of drinking water in a survival situation.
If you are filtering contaminated water which is relatively sediment free you can expect figures to be much higher than those listed above.
