SteriPen Traveler 3 in 1 UV Water Purifier Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the SteriPen Traveler 3 in 1 UV Water Purifier.
The concept here is really very simple. The Traveler uses powerful germicidal UV light 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 when itís in the water and starts the timer, and then automatically shuts the unit off when the proper dose of UV has been administered.
Now, used correctly, this unit exceeds the US EPA Standard for microbiological water purification and, in fact, destroys 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.9% of protozoa.
The unit is very durable and capable of providing 3,000 one liter doses of UV. If you did four liters of water per day every day, thatís almost two years of use.
Now, please note that pre-filtering the water is strongly recommended. You see, UV rays are blocked by sediment in the water. By pre-filtering, you remove that sediment out of the way so that the UV rays can effectively penetrate and do their job.
Now, this unit use 4 AA batteries, and it is strongly recommended that you use lithium batteries and not alkaline batteries. The UV light takes a lot of juice, kind of like a digital camera how you can really eat through batteries with alkaline type batteries. Use the lithium ones and youíll get significantly better life.
This is highly portable and compact. Itís got a really lightweight design, is perfect for outdoor activities, travelers, and emergencies. In fact, in my opinion, every emergency preparedness kit should have one of these inside.
If you have a boil water advisory in your local community, if you have one of these sitting on the shelf, itís like the fire extinguisher; you hope you never have to use it but you sure are glad you have it when you need one.
Again, this is the SteriPen Traveler 3 in 1 UV Water Purifier, and Iím your host Tony the Filter Doctor.
