Description

Show Description

Let your water filter itself while you set up camp, prep dinner, or just relax. This filtration system is a low-effort option that needs no pumping - simply fill and raise the reservoir to let gravity and hollow fibre filter remove 99.99% of all bacteria and protozoa.

  • Durable film reservoir with 1000-denier fabric bottom for increased abrasion resistance.
  • Hollow fibre technology uses polymer fibres to create a high-surface-area filter that allows water to flow quickly through a 0.2 micron effective pore size.
  • Nominal 1500L filter life is for clear water, turbidity will reduce its useful life to 1000 to 1200L.
  • Cleanable sediment trap increases filter element life.
  • Quick-connect adapter on the reservoir allows easy filling prior to filtering.
  • Universal bottle adapter and clean-side cover allow filter output to 63mm standard bottles and most other containers or reservoirs.
  • Clip-style shutoff valve on the output hose lets you swap our containers easily.

Filter type

Water can be treated using various types of filters, chemicals or non-chemical purification methods, or a combination. Filters on their own will not remove viruses as they are too small.

Hollow fibre technology
Output 1.75L/min
Dimensions 28 x 18cm
Cartridge life

The life of the filter cartridge is based on the quantity of water you can treat before the cartridge is no longer effective. This does not apply to battery operated or chemical filter systems.

1000-1500L
Filter size

A 0.5 micron or smaller filters protozoa and some large bacteria; 0.2 micron or smaller filters smaller bacteria such as campylobacter.

0.2microns
Effective against protozoa

Protozoa are larger than one micron and include cryptosporidium and giardia.

Yes
Effective against viruses

Most viruses are in the 0.1 micron size range, but they can be as small as 0.002 microns.

No
Effective against particulate

Particulate consists of very small bits and pieces such as dirt or bugs.

Yes
Effective against bacteria

Bacteria can cause illnesses such as diarrhea and dysentery and are about 1.0 micron in size, although some can be as small as 0.2 microns.
