"As a precaution and as a matter of prudence LIFESAVER has taken the decision to immediately cease dispatch of all LIFESAVER water filters to customers until this investigation process is complete. Whilst LIFESAVER is carrying out this further testing on its other water filters, LIFESAVER recommends that users refrain from using LIFESAVER water filters particularly in areas where virus infection is suspected, until notified otherwise by LIFESAVER. LIFESAVER advises all distributors to quarantine existing stock and pass on this warning notice to customers and users wherever possible."
As a result of this Lifesaver Systems warning I contacted the seller and Amazon to request a refund on my unused Lifesaver Jerrycan. They both refused to refund my money because, “We determined that you are not eligible for an A-to-Z Guarantee claim as you did not contact the seller within 14 days of receipt to report the issue or return the item within 30 days from the date of receipt. Your Guarantee claim for your order has been closed.
If this is a defective or damaged item, it is possible that it is under warranty with the manufacturer. We advise that you contact them for assistance. In many cases, they are willing to repair or replace defective products.”
I explained that I, of course, couldn’t notify Amazon within 14 days when the Lifesaver Systems product warning wasn’t issued until 85 days after my purchase. I can’t be aware of a product warning before it is issued. It was also impossible to contact the manufacturer for a refund because in October 2015 Lifesaver System’s web site looked as if the company were going out of business. It had the warning posted and very little else was available there.
It is very disheartening that one can buy such an expensive item on Amazon and less than 90 days after the purchase the manufacturer recommends discontinuing its use. Amazon’s attitude made me feel as if this were my problem, not theirs. This was a health related warning by the manufacturer of an expensive product being offered for sale on Amazon. If there were ever a legitimate reason for an exemption to Amazon’s refund policy this potentially health related warning seems to be a clear cut case.
I have been a very loyal Amazon customer since 2005. Now, because there doesn't seem to be any flexibility in their claim policy, I am stuck with an emergency water filter that has never been used and I don’t know if it poses a health hazard to my family or not. I continue to purchase from Amazon but I did stop buying from them for several months because of the dismissive way they treated me on this purchase.
Apparently Lifesaver Systems was sold to a new group. This was posted by Matthew Lee, CEO of the new “Icon Lifesaver Ltd.”, on the 14th of January 2016
“Why did the Lifesaver Systems Ltd warning notice get published in October 2015?
A test conducted by Lifesaver Systems Ltd in September 2015 identified that some batches of product were less effective than the standard obtained in 2011 from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine laboratory test in filtering out viruses. This testing house no longer conducts tests on water filtration therefore a new, accredited lab was chosen. The results of the new test showed that instead of achieving NSF recommended Log 4 (99.99%) removal of viruses, the effectiveness was Log 3 (99.9%) virus removal, in selected cases. This led to an investigation of the production process and supply chain. The issue was found to affect some batches of Lifesaver Systems Ltd product across the range of all product types in relation to virus removal only.
As a result, Lifesaver Systems Ltd made the decision to quarantine all stock and recommended to users that they do the same whilst they started to undertake the process of further investigation and re-testing.”
The Lifesaver system is probably the best CBRN water filter commercially available. Even the bacterial reduction performance shows a very impressive Log 7.5 reduction. In reality that is getting to the point when no individual bacteria can be measured passing through the filter. Other conventional filters including UV systems such as the Steripen are being measured in Log 3-4 reduction i.e. Hundreds to thousands of times less effective.
Filter lifetime seems to be impressive as well available in 10,000 and 20,000 liter capacity. For a family of 4 that would mean over 660/1320 gallons or 660/1320 days continuous use. (assuming 1 gallon of drinking water per person per day and depending on which filter used).
When comparing the cost of the Lifesaver Jerry Can against other filtration systems such as the Katadyn Expedition or Endurance grade filters with the additional expense of a UV system that would be needed for the deactivation of viruses and even the water carrier itself i.e. the actual Jerry Can that would be required to transport it, then the Lifesaver Jerry Can is probably very cost effective considering the claimed performance. The Lifesaver Jerry Can will perform all three steps in one simple device.
It also works excellent for car a or vehicle camping water filter and storage solution as well as a device which can be tucked away unused in the garage or basement ready for a domestic water emergency (domestic water supply availability is subject to electrical power outages in many areas).
Enough theory, how does it work? Well, it works flawlessly! I have used this system a dozen or so times while SUV camping, hunting and even once during a water boil advisory when the power was out and there was no way for me to boil the water (thanks to hurricane Sandy) Another use I managed to find for this is a pressurized camp shower! Lifesaver makes a shower attachment and the dark blue color of the 20,000 liter unit is dark enough to heat the water significantly when left in the sun. You could imagine the relief of a semi hot, pressurized camp shower.
The unit is effective against 99.9% of all bacteria, virus and even claimed to be effective against chemical and radiological hazards.
There is an added benefit to a camp shower when desired. That is a major perk for me.
In the space of one Jerry Can, which is how I already store water, I now have filtering capability.
Simple to use. Fill, pump, drink.
DURABLE, DURABLE, DURABLE!
The cost is steep, but put it into perspective:
1 Jerry can ~ $50.00
1 Name brand filter ~ $150.00
1 Steripen ~ 100.00
Total cost of 3 items needed to be as effective as one Lifesaver? $300.00
Total space/weight savings = priceless
Overall this is a SOLID 5 STAR ITEM. I look forward to many years of use from this device and so far it has served quite handy.
The pump is great and product solidly built As with all my gear that have screw on caps or connections, I lube the threads with https://smile.amazon.com/Hayward-SPX0327-1-Ounce-Jacks-Multilube/dp/B00CG4GMTG/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=pool+lube&qid=1568058432&s=gateway&sr=8-5 to prevent any leakage.
