1. Can LifeStraw be frozen ?
No. If your LifeStraw has been used, and is then exposed to freezing temperatures, water inside can freeze and crack the filter. In very cold environments, be careful to not let the straw freeze.
2. Is LifeStraw dishwater safe?
No. The heat of the dishwasher could warp the casing and possibly damage the filter. To clean, simply rinse with water, and leave uncapped to dry.
3. Can we drink pool water with the LifeStraw ?
Not a good idea. Pool water is usually treated with chlorine and other chemicals. LifeStraw will only remove bacteria and waterborne parasites, not chemicals.
4. How long will my LifeStraw last ?
The flow rate of your LifeStraw will decrease, and then stop pulling water through once it reaches the end of its life. You can increase the lifespan by cleaning the LifeStraw after each use. The great thing is, you can never drink contaminated water from a LifeStraw!
