Sawyer Bucket Filter
The Sawyer PointONE Hollow Fiber Membrane Filter will effectively remove all bacteria, parasites, protozoa, cysts, eggs, and other harmful particulates from unclean drinking water, down to 0.1 micron in size, for over twenty years or one-million gallons. This filter utilizes the same sophisticated technology as kidney dialysis – capturing all potentially harmful pathogens in a densely-braided cluster of straws – rendering almost any color and quality of water safe to drink. It will attach to virtually any water receptacle, but we use five-gallon buckets for their simplicity and commercial availability. It is also threaded, so it can be attached to almost any plastic water bottle.This filter contains no replaceable parts, nor does it require professional servicing. The recipient family merely needs to “backflush” – forcing clean water in the opposite direction of the natural flow of the filter with a kit-included plastic syringe – the filter once a day to optimize its performance and longevity. The filter can be attached to any plastic bucket (not included - 5 gallon ideally) after drilling a 13/16″ hole. (13/16” paddle bit and bucket not included in kit.)
Sawyer Tap Filter
Great for use in urban and rural locations, during boil alerts or in other emergencies when safe drinking water is compromised, the lightweight TAP Water Filter from Sawyer ensures access to clean drinking water. It's an ideal component to add to your emergency preparedness kit for use during natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes. Simply attach the filter to a standard faucet tap or to a hose bib spigot, turn on the water, and filter into your clean container.The TAP can be used to filter up to 500 gallons per day to an incredibly clean 0.1-micron standard. The small lightweight TAP features a 0.1-micron absolute filter that removes 99.99999% of bacteria (salmonella, cholera, and E. coli), 99.9999% of protozoa (cryptosporidium and giardia), and 100% of microplastics — exceeding EPA recommendations for removal rates.
