The LifeSaver® Jerrycan consists of an 18.5L container for raw water and a replaceable ultrafiltration cartridge for removal of microbiological contaminants including all microbial pathogens, cysts, parasites, fungi, and waterborne bacteria and viruses. It is composed of one single unit containing a removable pump for filling, an untrafiltration membrane activated carbon filter, connected to a tap. For use it must be filled, then pumped and filtered water will come out of the tap. The products dimension are 360 x 180 x 51mm, and it has a dry weight of 3.9 Kg. See users manual here.
Technical support provided by user: The jerrycan must be primed before first use according to instructions. For routine use, the container is filled and the pump pumped several times to pressurize the jerrycan. Treated water is accessed through the outlet tap. Additional pumping can increase flow. The filter should not be allowed to dry out and water should be flushed through the jerrycan on a regular basis if not using regularly. The user should not operate the pump if the jerrycan is empty. Usage should also be stopped if no water is flowing from the tap as the filter could be clogged or damaged. For more detail, see the user manual
