BUY ONE - GIVE ONE
For years we have been asked by many people "how can I buy one of those filters for myself and help someone else at the same time"? With these requests in mind, we have created the BUY ONE - GIVE ONE in which we will ship you a Sawyer Point ONE bucket water filter (minus the bucket or 13/16" drill bit) AND deliver a water filter to a family around the world that does not have access to clean, safe, drinking water in your name.
If you order multiples they will all be shipped to same US address.
Since goods are received you will receive a donation receipt for allowable tax donation value of $50 per filter donated.
How the filter works:
Sawyer water filters use Hollow Fiber Membranes, a technology developed for kidney dialysis. Our filters are comprised of tiny "U" shaped micro tubes that allow water to enter into their cores through tiny micro pores. The Sawyer PointONE Filters™ pores are so small (0.1 micron absolute) that no harmful bacteria including those which cause Cholera , Typhoid and E. Coli, protozoa, or cysts can get through. The filter attains the highest level of filtration available today exceeding US EPA standards for drinking water.
The filter can be attached to any plastic bucket (5 gallons ideally) after drilling a 13/16" hole (drill bit not included in kit)

This video animation shows how the the Sawyer PointONE hollow fiber membrane filter works so effectively. Unclean water flows into the filter and the bacteria and other parasites get trapped on the outside of the microtubes while the clean, safe, water is able to flow out from the inside of the microtubes.
