SteriPen Journey LCD UV Water Purifier Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the SteriPen Journey LCD UV Water Purifier.
Now the concept here is really very simple. The Journey LCD uses powerful germicidal UV rays to zap microorganisms and kill or render them completely harmless.
You simply turn the unit on, immerse it in water, and the water sensor automatically turns the UV bulb on and starts the timer. It then automatically shuts the unit off when the proper dose of UV rays has been applied. And 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, in fact, will destroy 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.9% of protozoa.
The unit is extremely durable and will perform 8,000 one liter doses of UV. If you purified four liters of water per day, every day, this unit would last you five years.
Now, please note that pre-filtering the water before you perform the UV action is strongly recommended. You see, thatís because sediment in water will block the penetration of the UV rays. If you have a Fits All Filter from SteriPen thatís a great choice. But, if not, use a bandana or another cloth to filter some of the sediment out before you apply the UV rays. That way they can effectively penetrate and zap those microorganisms before they zap you.
Now this unit is compact and very lightweight. In fact, it weighs a mere 4.5 ounces with the batteries. Thatís half the weight of most filter pumps. Itís perfect for anyone whoís doing outdoor activities or traveling and where you have a water source of unknown quality that might have microorganisms.
Again, this is the SteriPen Journey LCD UV Water Purifier, and Iím your host Tony the Filter Doctor.
