This was the best investment we could have made. Lived in Africa for 2 years and all the tried and true missionaries said get the Gravidyn Katadyn water filter. They had used there's for 6 years. The water tastes perfect, and we had nasty muddy water.

We have even purchased one now to use in the States. No chlorine taste in my water and when the Tavares city has a "don't" drink the water — we had a sewage spill in to the system. — we are fine. Do not leave home without it.


With water from mid-lake unit was slow to make water.

The TRK Drip Gravidyn from Katadyn is similar to their Ceradyn Filter. It includes activated carbon to reduce chemicals, and improves the taste and smell of water - that is the difference between the Gravidyn and the Ceradyn filter.
