SteriPen Journey LCD UV Water Purifier System Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the SteriPen Journey LCD Safe Water System.
Now this kit includes the Journey LCD UV Water Purifier with a carrying case and the appropriate batteries, the FitsAll filter, and a 32 ounce Triton, 100% BPA free plastic wide mouth bottle.
The concept here is really very simple. The Journey LCD uses powerful germicidal UV light to zap microorganisms and kill or render them completely harmless.
You simply turn the unit on and immerse it in water and the water sensor automatically turns the unit on and starts the timer once itís in water. Then the timer will automatically shut the unit off, while the LCD display shows the timer progress and the battery condition.
Used correctly, the Journey LCD exceeds the US EPA Standard for microbiological water purification, and it will effectively destroy 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.9% of protozoa.
The unit is very durable. It will perform 8,000, one liter doses of UV. If you purified four liters of water per day, every day, that would last five years.
Now, please note that pre-filtering is strongly recommended and thatís because sediment gets in the way of the UV rays as theyíre trying to penetrate the water. The sediment particles block those UV rays. So if you have a water source that is cloudy or turbid, that may have sediment in it, thatís why you have the FitsAll filter in this kit.
This unit is highly flexible and adaptable. It fits regular water bottles as well as wide mouth bottles, and because itís so flexible, it can fit nearly any bottle size. Then once youíve pre-filtered, the UV rays can effectively penetrate and do their job.
The entire unit is very compact and lightweight. The SteriPen unit itself weighs a mere 4.5 ounces with the batteries. Thatís less than half of most filter pumps.
This unit is perfect for anyone doing any kind of outdoor activity; camping, hiking, canoeing, or if youíre traveling and you know that the water where youíre going may be of questionable quality. You can zap those microorganisms before they zap you.
Again, this is the SteriPen Journey LCD Safe Water System, and Iím your host Tony the Filter Doctor.
