The replacement filters are the same exact filters that are included with new Lifesaver Bottles. The Ultra-Filtration Unit uses hydrophillic fiber tubes remove all microbiological contaminates. This means that water is completely sterile, there are no; bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, or fungi in the water once it has been filtered. By pumping the bottle, water is forced through hydrophillic fiber tubes which filter out all microbiological contaminates; rendering the water completely purified. The replaceable ultra-filtration cartridge removes all waterborne pathogens and is good for 4,000 Liters or 6,000 Liters (depending on model). A unique safety feature of the Lifesaver Fitration System is the use of their patented Failsafe Technology which will not allow water to move through the filter once it has exceeded its useful life. Users will be able to tell when they are nearing the end of their filters life when it becomes more difficult to force water through the filter until the filter simply stops allowing water through, signalling that it is time for the filter to be replaced.
