Clear selection

A robust and portable water purifier capable of filtering 20,000 litres/5,282 US gallons of clean drinking water, removing viruses, bacteria, cysts and parasites instantly. The LifeSaver Jerrycan holds up to 18.5 litres of water at any one time and is designed to support those with a greater demand for clean water such as group expeditions, adventurers embarking on overland travel, families or those setting themselves up for off-grid living.

The LifeSaver Jerrycan was designed to store and carry dirty water. We recommend storing dirty water, either in the Jerrycan or in other storage containers, and filtering through the Jerrycan as and when clean water is required, to prevent recontamination of previously filtered water.

Filter water for drinking, for washing with the addition of the LifeSaver shower attachment and for cooking. No need for chlorine or chlorine dioxide.

  1. FCL Zimbabwe

    We have used it on various camping trips to purify river water and currently use it daily to purify dodgy municipal water at home in Harare. We cannot rate it highly enough – a super product!
    Would love to get the large scale version … one day?

  2. Jesse Carter

    This may be the best product I have ever spent my money on. It blows my mind every single time I see how clean my lifesaver Jerry can cleans my water. I drink a little over a gallon a day of all kinds of different water never once have I gotten sick. I get cleaner water from my Jerry can than I do my tap thank you lifesaver for such a useful product.

    Hope it works when I need it

    This is by far the best water filtration system in the world. I am not exaggerating, one Jerrycan can produce 5283 gallons of water(you obviously have to take care of it and clean it from time to time). Do them math, for one person, drinking only one gallon a day(some people use 2 gallons) this one filter will last you almost 14 and a haft years. (5283 gallons /365 days = 14.47 years) This is only one person, one gallon a day. Two people, same rate of drinking, will give you about 7 years.
    Make sure to also get a replacement filter cartridge in case, you have an accident with the main one.
    I know the cost is high but the return in investment is huge.

    I have this as an essential prepping item. VERY hard/durable plastic. SO with an extra filter I have 5500 gallons of drinking water. The shower attachment is cool. I thought of a gravity fed but those may be inconvenient if yo are on the move. Incredibly rated as far as microns go….look it up. There are also helpful YOU TUBE videos.

    Have it stored for emergency.
