Katadyn Siphon Water Filter
Katadyn Siphon Water Filter. High Capacity Ceramic Filter can filter 5,300 gallons (about 20,000 Liters). The Katadyn siphon filter life is 20- 25 times the capacity of most hand pump filters. The simplest water filter system in the world - no moving parts to break or maintain. Cheaper per gallon than other solutions.
The Siphon makes a gravity water supply system out of any water container. Place one or more Siphon filter elements into a container of source water and let the water run through the hose into a lower-positioned clean storage vessel. The siphon provides a slow ( 1.5 gallons per hour), but steady flow of clean, clear, safe to drink, potable water.
The Ultralight, High Capacity Katadyn Sipon solution is ideal for camping, base camps and emergency use. Really shines in large group endurance, expedition style basecamp situations.
No pumping effort required - excellent for survival kits and situations where conserving your energy is critical. No moving parts, no expiration date - perfect for your emergeny preparedness kit.
