About this item

Purify over 3,000 gallons of water from any fresh water source, then backwash the filter for continued use — no replacement filter needed. From technology used in medical dialysis equipment, the submicron hollow fiber membrane filter found in this revolutionary purifier uses a cluster of micro-fibrous tubes. When water is drawn through the membrane, it flows through the side walls of the micro-fibrous tubes without any noticeable pressure drop. Sediment, bacteria, protozoa, cysts, viruses and other contaminants are mechanically filtered out. This filtration product exceeds all applicable EPA recommendations. No pumping, no chemicals, no waiting, no worries.

The Sawyer Purifier is without equal. It filters down to include viruses and does it at astonishing speed. The price offered at Walmart online allowed me to purchase a platypus replacement gravity bag kit and produce my own state-of-the-art filter that produces one gallon of pure water in 2 1/2 minutes with no pumping whatsoever! I use a fine metal mesh 'permanent coffee filter' at less than 1/2 ounce in the neck of the "Dirty" bag to remove the large 'floaties', and a cheap plastic gasoline filter from an auto parts store that goes inline, below the dirty water bag and just before the Sawyer, to serve as a cheap pre-filter to extend the life of the Sawyer in the field.

Great performance for the money but I was surprised to find out after purchasing that the filter requires "priming". You need to force water through it with a connection to a faucet at fairly high pressure. So if city water fails, and you haven't primed your filter you can't use it. If you get one of these make sure you prime it and cap the ends so it will be ready when you need it.

I don't doubt that the filter purifies as advertised, but it is almost impossible to drink from if you are attempting to suck water from the bottle. I don't think I could suck enough water through it to stay hydrated. It works OK when using the faucet attachment to fill your bottle, but it is very slow when doing this. It seems it might be best if using a gravity fed system that can be left alone to filter over a long period of time.

I haven't had a chance to try this product out and it will be a while before I need it. But it arrived in good condition. It seems very sturdy, the water bottle is pretty tough as plastic water bottles go. It has a rubber faucet adapter with a tube which connects to the filter, so you could put it over a faucet and let the water come through to the other side of the filter. In a small sink it might be akward because the length of the filter plus the tube is long. But I can't see how it could have been done any better. You can attach the item to a hydration pack or gravity feed pack (which you would have to buy seperately) and it is very versatile. Overall I am glad I chose this one!
