The Katadyn Siphon Water Filter makes it easy to obtain a supply of drinking water for large groups without the use of a pump. No need to connect it to a tap: the Siphon can simply be placed in a container filled with water--at a higher elevation--or be used with a water bag like the Katadyn Camp. The ceramic deep filter removes bacteria, protozoa and other disease-causing agents. Unlike disposable filters, the ceramic can be cleaned several times. PLEASE NOTE: Katadyn items CANNOT be shipped outside of the USA. Ceramic filters have a micro porous structure with impregnated silver which delays the growth of bacteria. The pore-size of Katadyn ceramic filters is 0.2 micron (0.0002 mm). Bacteria range in size from 0.2 to 5 micron and, like protozoa (1 to 15 micron), are efficiently filtered out. Ceramic filters can be mechanically regenerated and the filter capacity is measurable.

Katadyn Siphon Water Filter

This unit makes perfect sense to compliment your personal water purification units if/when you need additional water to supply others. This packs well, stores forever and has a high volume output rating that means it can provide years of use as well. Cost is certainly reasonable. Yet another reason to carry large plastic bags in your kit. Remember: Keep it Simple!
