Recent Water Treatment Product Reviews

Katadyn Base Camp

rated 1.5 of 5 stars We used the filter on a BWCA trip and even with prefiltering the water with 4 bandanas and using 3 screen prefilters from older filter cartridges the unit clogged in just 20L of use. The only thing that saved us from boiling water was the reason I bought the system; the filter works in my Hiker pump. We did find that the filter worked fine in the pump. My plan is to put a Sawyer in-line filter on the bag.   I like the large volume and ease of use.  I just want something I can back flush and repair. … Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 4 of 5 stars Used on several 50 mile+ multi-day kayak float trips pumping ~8 L/day of water (maybe 80 - 90 L total to date). Light and easy to carry and quick setup. Can tell the filter is starting to clog as water flow was not continuous with last day's pump. But still a good unit for the cost and function. Using this system after a much larger system failed on day two of a four-day, 65-mile float. This system has been on two trips to date and has worked well. Easy to set up and pump. It does take two people… Full review

Katadyn Base Camp

rated 3.5 of 5 stars If your Base Camp leaks, just wrap some plumbers (silicone) tape around the threads before screwing on the cap. In a pinch use a piece of a plastic grocery bag (they are almost as thin now). Works great, no leaks. I would like to get a replacement ceramic filter for mine. Anyone have a reasonably priced source for one? No way to tell if the filter is still usable. Filter clogs even with clear water. Needs a ceramic filter. Easy to use.  Would like to see replacement ceramic filter at reasonable… Full review

SteriPEN Classic

rated 5 of 5 stars Best device for the money. Had it for four years now and it's never failed me. Even when I dropped it and the battery cover cracked, it still worked. Great piece of kit, never go off into unsafe waters without one. I've had the Steripen Classic for four years now and it's never failed me.  Even when I dropped it and the battery cover cracked, it still worked. To boot, when I called SteriPEN for information on how to repair the cracked cover they simply shipped a replacement battery cover to me… Full review

MSR SweetWater Purifier System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have used the SweetWater for three years now. It has always done a great job. When an internal mechanism broke from years of use, MSR promptly replaced it—no questions asked. I got it used. When handed to me, I asked the guy how much life was left in it. He said he thought it was at the end of the line. I used it for two more years. It's finally starting to "pop the hose back" from the filter being at the end of the line. Effectiveness: Treats water well. Be mindful that it takes out particulate… Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 4 of 5 stars If you need to carry a filter for reasonably large volumes of water (camping for several people), this filer works quite well. Lighter options exist now. I've used this filter for several years, but now rarely carry it because I can generally meet my needs (just my wife and I) with a Sawyer Squeeze for a lot lower weight penalty. Full review

Katadyn Hiker PRO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good water filtration system. I have used this filter for several years now, and have replaced the cartridges about 2 times in the past 5 years.  The system is easy to use and cleans just as easy. Replacement cartridges are easy to take out and place back in.  I would recommend that when you return home from any trip that you air dry out the cartridge so that it doesn't get any mildew or mold on it. This is coming from my own experience, as I forgot to do that at the end of one season and after… Full review

LifeSaver Systems LifeSaver Bottle

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Well, I bought this item with some excitement thinking this was my answer to using chemical tablets and boiling. Was I wrong. I read all the positive reviews and watched the videos and thought this was my answer to hiking in the wilds and minimizing weight. When I got the item I followed the instructions to the letter primed etc and noticed small deposits of carbon from the filter passing and settling at the bottom of a test glass, but put this down to it being new. Went away for the weekend and… Full review

Sawyer Mini Filter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best for solo use. Can easily be used as an online filter on a Camelbak type system, although drinking then requires more effort. The Sawyer Mini is my first water purification system, although I have used and seen many others that fellow hikers have had. The Sawyer Mini is a great device that can be used at base camp for filling water bottles or attached to a large water bladder for community use. I had first tried this out as an in-line filter on my Camelbak, but quickly found out that did not… Full review
