There are many factors that come into play to make the UltraFlo™ Portable Water Filtration System a solid water purification setup when it comes to obtaining emergency purified drinking water.
At a mere 6.3 ounces, the Power Plus Pump itself is extremely lightweight, and as a result, this overall filtration system is a great choice not just for emergency kits but for family campouts and other gatherings where you need to both purify AND dispense water for large groups of people.
In addition, the Power Plus Pump is a workhorse, dispensing water fast without any exertion on your part, making it easy to fill up multiple water bottles or containers for a family hike, scout outing, guided trip, or another group setting, where pumping water manually for everyone who needs it would be exhausting and time-consuming.
The best thing about the UltraFlo™, however, is its reliability. While the Power Plus Pump is quite durable and can purify up to 30 gallons on one charge, if for whatever reason you aren’t able to charge it or it runs out of charge after extensive use, you can easily replace the Power Plus Pump with the lightweight Sagan Life®Hand Pump (included with purchase) and pump out your water manually in the exact same fashion! The Sagan Life® Hand Pump can also siphon water when primed, doubling its versatility.
In short, this makes the UltraFlo™ Portable Water Filtration System a surefire choice to access clean water in case of emergencies, even when you may not have reliable access to electricity or solar power to charge your pump.
The UltraFlo™ 10 Water Filter was independent laboratory certified to purify up to 2,000 gallons meeting the EPA standard requirements for removing up to 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.999% of cryptosporidium, depending on water turbidity. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), disinfection by-products, endotoxin, natural organic matter, heavy metals, and other sub-micron particles… it’s all purified by the UltraFlo™ 10 filter.
All told, this is a water purification setup you can count on. In an emergency situation, you want nothing less than the UltraFlo™ Portable Water Filtration System.
