I Love the concept! I just question how well it works. It says to just push down on cartridge and once it reaches the bottom water is purified. It says it should take 30-60 seconds to push down. When I tried it went down very quickly. I was afraid to actually bring it to Nicaragua with me and try it.


  • With correct use water is purified quickly.


  • Not the lightest water filtration system on the market.

I really wanted this to work for me. The Grayl Quest Purifier is an all-in-one system. The system itself claims to last over 10 years.

I felt like the pressure I was applying wasn't enough to prove that the water was safe. I was afraid to actually use while in Nicaragua. It says it should take 30-60 seconds to apply pressure through the water inside the canister.  

The pressure I applied reached the bottom within just a few seconds. I am only 5' 2" 115 lbs, so I know my strength could not be a factor to the pressure that was supposed to be applied. I watched every video I could and read through every manual 1000 times and I still feel like I wasn't doing enough to purify the water I wanted to drink.

I really wanted this to work for me. Maybe someone could explain what I was doing wrong.
