Summary

Never used another filter.

Been using several for 30 years. It's only good for about 100 gallons and is difficult to pump when nearing the end of its life expectancy. I don't think I've ever cleaned mine, but I've only filtered clear water from Rocky Mountain and Appalachian streams. Have never gotten sick from drinking water it filtered.

Can pump a quart in several minutes.

The hoses it comes with are short. I used a piece of surgical tubing in place of one hose.
