SteriPen Freedom UV Water Purifier Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the SteriPen Freedom UV Water Purifier. The concept is really very simple. The Freedom 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 it knows it’s in water. Then it kicks on the timer and automatically turns the UV bulb off when the appropriate dose of UV light has been administered. How easy is that? 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 producing 8,000 half liter doses of UV light. If you purified two liters of water per day, every day, that’s five years of use. Now, please note that pre-filtering is strongly recommended. That’s because UV rays are blocked by sediment in the water. If you have cloudy or turbid water, you need to clear it up as best is possible before applying the UV light so that the UV rays can effectively penetrate and zap those microorganisms. Now, the Freedom has an internal rechargeable battery. It comes with an AC adaptor and a USB adaptor so you can attach it to your computer and recharge it, and the unit is capable of performing forty treatments per charge. It is, of course, highly portable and compact and very lightweight. It’s perfect for outdoor activities, for travelers and for emergencies. In fact, in my opinion, every emergency preparedness kit should have a unit like this in it. It’s kind of like a fire extinguisher, you hope you never have to use it, but you sure are glad you have one when the time comes. Again, this is the SteriPen Freedom UV Water Purifier, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
