Description

Show Description

The Explorer is a simple, reliable gravity-fed water purification system. It needs no pumping, chemicals or batteries, and lets you go pitch the tent or start dinner while it filters your water. Even better, it requires no back-flushing after use. Electropositive filters have a relatively fast flow rate, so your whole crew can be sipping clean, pure water in less than a minute.

  • Protects against 99.9999% viruses, bacteria and protozoan cysts.
  • Electropositive filter traps pathogens, allows faster flow rates and requires less pressure.
  • Silver ions suppress the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria to keep the filter fresh between uses.
  • Filter life varies depending on water quality (turbid water will reduce its life).
  • Includes a spare filter cartridge.
  • Reservoir capacity is 9L.
