This weekend I shared with you some pictures of the new gadget I have- the Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System. Click here to see that post if you missed it.
Today I want to share with you more details on what it is and how it works. And Part Three will be a demo of how to use it!
Here are some of the facts:
- Super small, weighing only 2 ounces
- Filters up to 100,00 gallons!
- No cartridges to replace ever- a proper backwashing can restore up to 98.5% of the flow rate.
How Do I Drink With It?
There are multiple ways to use the product. You can simply use the straw that comes in the package in order to drink directly from the water source.
Connect it to your hydration pack.
It also fits directly onto any standard water bottle.
Or connect it to the collapsible drinking pouch that comes with it.
Why Do I Need This?
The filter removes 99.99999% of bacteria and protozoa- salmonella, cholera, e. coli and more.
This would be perfect item to throw in your bag when doing any sort of outdoor recreation, including camping and hiking.
Throw it in your carry-on bag when traveling internationally. And put it in your “bug-out” bag or glove box of your car for emergency preparedness.
The small, lightweight product can fit anywhere- even your purse!
It comes in more than one color and in multi-packs as well.
Where Do I Get It?
The filtration system can be found at a variety of online retailers and outdoor/sporting goods stores. If you want to find it on Amazon, here you go: Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System.
What a great Christmas stocking stuffer these would make!
Stay tuned for part three!
