Pump Water Filter

The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling. The technology it uses consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fiber filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odors. Anyone who needs up to two liters of drinking water per minute can use the glass fibre and active charcoal filter. If the water is extremely cloudy, the ceramic pre-filter can be adjusted in a moment in order to extend the service life of the glass fiber filter. The Vario is compatible with most standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders.

Return policy on water filters: Due to safety considerations we cannot accept returns on water filters. Warranty issues are handled directly by the manufacturers.

Vario Features
Katadyn Vario : detail of filter element selector
  • The new Katadyn filter pump uses ceramic as cleanable dirt shield and glass fiber for microbiological filtration with minimal pump resistance.
  • In mode “LONGER LIFE” the turbid water is first pre filtered through the ceramic disk.
  • When operating in mode “FASTER FLOW” the water is directed straight to the glass fiber membrane, increasing the water flow to up to 2 l/min
  • Replaceable activated carbon granulate reduces chemicals and improves taste and odor.
  • A dual piston mechanism provides continuous water flow with minimal effort.
