Backorder Policy

For out-of-stock items, we post an ETA date provided by our supplier, or else we adjust it conservatively to be on the safer side. We hate stockouts and work to stay on top of the situation with the source, to ensure that our information stays current. In all likelihood, we probably get called pests (and worse) by manufacturers and suppliers who've run out of things. For many of the products WaterCheck.biz offers, we know from manufacturers that we carry a larger stock of their product as a percentage of sales than any retailer in the world, and we reorder long before counts hit zero. This means that by the time we’re out of something, most others usually have been out for some time. It also means that the way you’re most likely to get the item the soonest, is to preorder with us. In some cases, preordering can even prevent having to wait until a second new shipment comes in, before unspoken-for stock becomes available. ETA’s from our suppliers are usually quite accurate. But things can happen, from shipping damage to lost cargoes to customs delays, so it’s important to remember that the "E" in “ETA” stands for “estimated,” not for "exact." Our pledge is two-fold: To provide the most accurate information possible, and to get stockout items back out the door again very quickly once they arrive.

      How To Use Our LifeStraw Family 1.0 Portable Water Filter Purifier ...

        LifeStraw Family uses advanced hollow fiber technology. Water is forced through narrow fibers under high pressure. Clean water exits through tiny pores in the walls of the hollow fibers, but bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other contaminants are trapped inside the hollow fibers and are flushed out by backwashing. This is a highly efficient method of filtration.

        • The feed water bucket (2 liter capacity) is filled with water.
        • The 80-micron textile pre-filter (inside the feed water bucket) removes coarser particles and is easy to clean.
        • Water passes through the meter-long blue PVC hose and gravity creates sufficient pressure on the membrane cartridge in order to reach a high flow rate.
        • Ultra filtration takes place in the hollow fiber membrane cartridge - a pore size of 20 nanometers (0.02 microns) retains bacteria, viruses, parasites and fine dirt particles.
        • The blue tap is turned to release purified water.
        • Backwash the membrane by squeezing the red backwash bulb 3 times with both taps closed and then releasing the dirty water from the red tap. Water from the red tap should never be consumed.

        Since 2005, the LifeStraw  has been used in developing countries to assist in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals for clean drinking water. WaterCheck.biz is proud to have been chosen as an official retail partner for LifeStraw. We’re very excited to bring the award winning, globally recognized LifeStraw water filters to the world.
