If you have a 55 Gallon Drum full of emergency water sitting in your garage - for who knows how long - now you can easily pump AND purify the water at the same time. Super excited about this good news! Sagan Life® has created the best of both worlds, providing a fast, easy way to pump and filter water, providing pure, clean drinking water immediately. The AquaDrum™ 55 Gallon Drum Water Purification System is simple to use. Just insert the hand pump or rechargeable battery pump into your 55 gallon drum (drum is not included with the system) and purify about five 55 gallon drums of water.
The AquaDrum™ 55 Gallon Water Filter system includes the Battery Charged Power Pump; Hand Pump; Journey™ Water Filter and the tubing you'll need to insert the filter into the drum.
Assembling the 55 Gallon Drum Water Purification System
Assembly is quick, easy and you can use the water immediately. The hand pump and rechargeable battery pump each draw water through the filter and out of the drum – providing gallons of pure, clean drinking water instantly from your water barrel. ‘Quick Connect’ (easy snap-together) pieces easily connect the components.
POWER PUMP: Attach the Power Pump to the Journey™ Filter using the quick connect components and tubing. Drop the filter into the water barrel. It pretty much sits on top of the barrel opening. Push the button on the Power Pump and pure clean water immediately flows.
The Power Pump flows continuously. When the Power Pump slows down a bit – you’ll know it’s time for a recharge using the USB cable it comes with.
HAND PUMP: Attach the Hand Pump to the Journey™ Filter using the quick connect components and tubing. Drop the filter into the water drum. Pump the bulb manually a few times to get it primed and water will begin to dispense from the pump. The hand pump can also be used as a siphon, offering a third way to obtain water from your drum.
Use this water barrel purification system to easily pump water from 15, 30 and 55 gallon drums - actually any size long term water storage container with a 2″ opening or bigger. No matter the size container of your emergency water supply storage, the AquaDrum™ System is an effective solution to get purified emergency drinking water fast.

I spend most of the year working outside in remote locations and so being able to acquire water without carrying in massive amounts is important. Other systems have failed due to various design faults but yours are working really well for me. However, having recently purchased a bottle and straw I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me with please.
1- if left unopened, how long does the filter last for, is there a use by date?
2- once opened do I need to continuously be using it or can I leave it for so many days or weeks before the next use e.g. leave it soaking in water…
