Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $70

Summary

Versatility. At least 5 different applications for one price. 1 million gallon guarantee. Easy to maintain, and no replacement filters to buy. Best for backpacking, car camping, home use, canoeing/kayaking. Anything that you may need water for.

Pros

  • Cost
  • Versatility
  • Ease of maintence

Cons

  • Squeeze bags may bust if you apply too much pressure.

What I love about this filter is its versatility. The filter is very adaptable for different setups. One filter, many applications. It has a 1 million gallon guarantee, and filters down to a .1 micron level.

Easy to maintain. It includes a syringe that you use to backwash the filter. Simply fill the syringe with clean, filtered water, remove drinking cap, insert syringe and watch all the yuck come out of the dirty end of the filter.  The filter can be adapted in many ways such as:

  1. It screws onto the squeeze bags that are included in the kit. There is a 32 oz and a 12 oz squeeze bags.  So you could fill up those bags, attach the filter and drink directly from the filter. Or use the filter to fill up a water bottle or hydration pack.
  2. The filter screws onto most water bottles or 2 liter bottles that you get from the store. So before your hike, you can pick up a bottle of water from a gas station. Once the bottle is empty, refill empty bottle from the stream or lake, attach filter and you can drink from the filter.
  3. If you are base camping near a stream or lake, there is an bucket adapter. Pick up a food grade, BPA free 5 gallon bucket (not included) and attach the filter using the kit. The kit even includes a drill bit! You can then use the water from your source for drinking, cooking and washing
  4. Faucet adapter. You can set up the filter to filter your home faucet water. Let's say (in my case) you are in the Northern Colorado Floods of 2013. They put out a boil order for all water. There is a run on bottled water at the store. You attach this filter to your faucet and you are good to go. It felt good knowing that, no matter how scarce water became, I could filter as much water as my family needed.
  5. Hydration gravity feed. I picked up a extra hydration bladder from a certain big box store for $10. I cut off the bit valve and installed the extra hose bib that came with the filter. Now I have a gravity flow, hydration bag setup that I can use when backpacking.

Overall, you are buying one system that has at least 5 different applications. This is well worth the money and time.  Research it more online and youtube.
