Description

The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is a second generation filter that is the lightest and most versatile personal filtration system from Sawyer. With a total field weight of 2 ounces it fits in the palm of your hand. This tiny filter does the same job that the Sawyer PointOne filter does but now in a more compact, personal size. The Sawyer Mini filter is perfect for everything from camping with the kids to traveling in another country where tap and bottle water cannot be trusted. The filter removes 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria (like salmonella) in addition to other harmful bacteria which causes cholera and E. coli and 6 log (99.9999%) of all protozoa such as giardia and cryptosporidium. These removal rates equal or exceed other filter options. EPA guidelines allow ten times more protozoa left in the water than Sawyer PointOne filters allow. The Sawyer Mini Water Filter is backed by a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty. Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water, and injuries — everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness to point-of-use water filters that filter contaminated water to levels cleaner than U.S. bottled water.

Absolute Micron Filtering Technology Makes The Difference

“U” shaped micro-tubes allow water to go into into their core

The proprietary element of Sawyer’s water filters is comprised of tiny “U” shaped micro-tubes that allow water to go into into their core through tiny micro-pores. The high number of those tiny tubes and their surface area allows the filter to have one of the crucial fastest waft rates on the planet. This high waft rate eliminates the want to store water, reducing the potential of water contamination after the filtration process.

Each filter is certified for absolute microns; that means there is not any pore size larger than 0.1 in size. This makes it nearly inconceivable for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer Mini filter. Sawyer filters have been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories and found to take away 7 log (99.99999%) of bacteria and 6 log (99.9999%) of protozoa, exceeding US EPA standards. The filter does not remove chemicals, dissolved solids, or viruses. Then again, viruses are very rarely found in North The us or when traveling to foreign cities.

Sawyer’s revolutionary filter technology is in use by hundreds of groups, including non-profit organizations, relief agencies, and governments in more than 70 countries all over the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know when the filter is full?

The waft of water will slow down. Then again, it is going to never fail. Once the filter starts to slow down simply backwash it and it is going to be as good as new.

Yes! It is easy and secure. It couldn’t be more perfect! Its small, lightweight and priced so that everyone can have their own filter. It doesn’t need the entire small parts and accessories of first generation filters to move from a hydration pack to a bottle to a pouch. It has it all!

Can I put the filter inline on my hydration pack?

Yes, connectors for your hydration pack hose are built into the filter.

Can I put the filter on a different / smaller bottle?

As long as the bottle has a “standard” thread you’ll. Most soda and disposable water bottles made {worldwide|all over the world} use this thread.

How incessantly will have to I clean the filter?

For longer filter life, you will have to backwash and sanitize the filter after every outing.

If I backwash it, will the bacteria in the city water grow in the filter?

Sawyer recommends sanitizing the filter before storing it. If you backwash the filter and then use it, bacteria from the city water will not grow.

Is it going to get clogged Whilst I’m out on a travel?

Even with very high particulate /turbid water you will have to get 5 to 10 gallons through the filter. If this is not enough water for your travel you will have to either plan on field backwashing your filter.
