This water filter has held the reputation of being the finest available for extreme conditions for over 40 years, with excellent performance even in very cloudy water. It is extremely tough, easy to handle, compact and lightweight, with unparalleled ability to provide safe water at a flowrate to 1 quart (1 liter) per minute.

With a pore size of only 0.2 micron, all known bacteria and parasites are physically removed. The ceramic filter element is protected against growthrough of bacteria, even after years of use. Cocci, protozoa, fungi, giardia cysts, cryptosporidium are removed, and carriers of cholera, typhoid, bilharzia, shigellosis, typhoid, traveler's diarrhea, amebiasis, schistosomiasis and salmonellosis are eliminated.

The filter's effectiveness does not depend on variables such as temperature, acidity, turbidity or level of dissolved or suspended mineral and organic matter. Chemical-free filtration provides water with its own natural taste and mineral contents - it is clear, clean, and bacteria-free.

The filter's outside parts are aluminum with built-in pump, and the turquoise housing is polypropylene. The 40" (100 cm) suction hose has an intake strainer to eliminate coarse debris.

Katadyn's ceramic technology is the most cost effective available. Filter elements are cleanable and reusable, and will filter up to 50,000 liters of water, 100 times more than some competitive filters, before needing to be replaced.

The unit comes with cleaning brush and user instructions, all of which pack neatly into its zippered soft carrying case. Dimensions are 10" long x 2" diameter (25 x 5 cm); weight is 21 oz. (600 grams). Made in Switzerland; covered by manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
