Why choose Sawyer water filters
- Only Sawyers, absolute .10 Micron pore-size make it impossible for harmful bacteria to pass. Other manufacturers only guarantee nominal micro-pore size thereby leaving the possibility for bacteria to pass.
- With an unbeatable throughput of 2 liters/minute, you never have to wait for water. A high throughput lowers the need for water storage and thereby the risks of water contamination.
- Effortless clean water by gravitation feed!
- Compact & Lightweight, the filter itself weighs only 85 grams and fits into a deep pocket
- Lowest cost per liter of clean water
- Sawyer products & add-ons are configured according to your needs
- Sawyer offers the ONLY portable purification device (Point Zero TWO) to physically remove viruses.
- Lasts a lifetime! Sawyer guarantees 3,800,000 liter of clean filtered water. Typical filter lifetimes of other manufacturers are less than 2000 liter and have high filter replacement costs
If viruses are an issue, we offer the Point ZeroTWO Purifier (0.02 micron absolute pores), the first and thus far ONLY portable purification device to physically remove viruses, which it does at a >5.5 log (99.9997%) rate, exceeding EPA and NSF recommendations. For more information click here.
- Mechanical Filtration through hollow-fiber membrane technology
- High number of tiny “U” shaped micro-tubes allows the filter to have high flow rates.
- Each filter is certified for ABSOLUTE microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 or 0.02 micron in size: this makes it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giradia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer PointONE™ biological filter. At 7 log (99.99999%) the filter attains the highest level of filtration available today.
- You will find these removal rates to equal or exceed competitive options. EPA guidelines allow ten times more Protozoa left in the water than we allow.
