LifeSaver Jerrycan purifies 5 gallons of water for drinking and showering

The LIFESAVER Jerrycan is a large water purification jug that could be of great use to everyone from campers to inhabitants of remote villages. The Jerrycan incorporates a built-in filtration system which can purify 18.5 liters (4.9 gallons) of water at a time, along with an integrated shower attachment that lets you use the water for cleaning as well as drinking.

We’ve seen numerous water purification systems here at Gizmag, but usually they filter small amounts of water at a time. In fact, the original LIFESAVER bottle fits this description, as does the Lifestraw and Camelbak All Clear Bottle. On the other end of the spectrum, we’ve seen some devices capable of transporting large quantities of water, but they don’t necessarily filter or purify the water.

The Jerrycan does both.

    Wish l could have one, but l can not afford it.

    Convenient container and filter all in one. My reluctance is based on the slightly higher initial cost and significantly higher cost of replacement filter compared to my Berkey. Add any concern for the reliability of the pump and I will stick with the less convenient gravity fed Berkey. For portability, I’ll stick with some small handheld filters and a regular jerrycan as a dirty water container.
