Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System
The sawyer Mini Water Filter is rated for an absolute filtration level of 0.1 Micron, and will remove particles, bacteria, protozoa, and cysts from source water.
The Sawyer Mini Water Filter uses a cluster of microfibrous tubes (Ultra Filtration). The water is drawn through the side walls of the hollow tubes, and out the small outlet holes, while the particles, bacteria, protozoa and cysts remain on the outer wall of the hollow fibre tubes.
- Light weight, only 56 grams
- Small, compact
- Ideal for outdoor use, such as hiking, camping, cycling, emergency preparedness, and travel.
Keep in mind
- While the sawyer mini water filter is very effective at the removal of micro-organisms and bacteria in water, it will not remove other types of contaminants such as heavy metals and chlorine.
- The sawyer mini water filter also does not filter finely enough to change the mineral content of the source water, as so will not change the base mineral content of a source water. For example if you have a source water with a very brackish (salty) taste to it, the sawyer mini filter system will not reduce or remove the brackish taste from the water.
Multiple ways to use
There are several different ways that the sawyer mini water filter can be used.
The Sawyer mini filter can be used with hydration packs / water storage backpacks.
Using the straw attachment you can draw water directly from a source water, through the sawyer filter, and into your month.
Using the squeeze bag provided with the unit, you can fill the bag from a source water. Then squeeze the water out of the bag, through the sawyer mini water filter, and into another container, glass, or straight into your mouth.
The Sawyer mini filter's design means that the unit can be screw on to most plastic bottle tops (with 28mm) such as cold drink or water bottles.
