2L Water Treatment System

Biological Gravity Filter - SP161

The filtration process is practically hands-free: just hang the system from a tree or any source off the ground and watch gravity do all the work. In as little as 1.5 minutes you will have 2L of safe, clean drinking water. When flow becomes slow or clogged, the included faucet adapter can be used to backwash the filter by forcing clean water back through your filter with clean water from a faucet.

Sawyer Vario : detail of filter element selector

Sawyer® Water Filters use hollow fiber membrane filters. The Submicron Hollow Fiber Membrane found in this filter uses a cluster of micro-fibrous tubes. When the water is drawn through the membrane it flows through the side walls of the microfibrous tubes without any noticeable pressure drop. Pore sizes are so small that it mechanically removes sediment, bacteria, protozoa, cysts, viruses and other contaminants. This filter does not require the use of chemicals such as iodine or chlorine. All Sawyer® Water filters exceed EPA and NSF recommendations for removal rates.

Sawyer® water filters and purifers can be backwashed. So let's say that you take your filter on a 3 month trip with you. When you return from your trip, simply backwash your filter with clean water to flush out all of the particulate that has built up in your filter. It's that easy. So don't let clean water be an issue any more, Buy a Sawyer® Water Filter or Purifier.
