Water Purification Kits
The Sawyer SP190 Biological/Viral Purification Kit includes a small, lightweight filter that can provide over 300 Liters of clean water per day. This Bucket adapter kit offers the same level of protection against bacteria and protozoa, and is the first portable filtration devices to remove viruses mechanically at a 0.02 MICRON ABSOLUTE 5.5 log (99.9997%) removal rate, the highest level of filtration available today.
With its 0.02 micron absolution filtration, the Point ZeroTwo goes one step beyond Sawyer’s standard filters to remove 99.997% of viruses in addition to 99.99999% of bacteria and 99.9999% of protozoa/cysts.
This powerful, lightweight Purification System has an output of 1 liter per minute when used as a gravity system with a bucket (not included) — no pumping, chemicals, or electricity required. It also comes with a faucet adapter.
The Purifier will need to be primed before use and after each prolonged storage. This should be always done before you need purified water. Due to the very small pore sizes of the 0.02 micron absolute fibers, you will need to use a higher pressure system to force clean water thorough the purifier to fully wet the fibers and prepare the purifier for use. If you are unable to pre-prime your Sawyer purifier, the system will still be able to filter water but at a drastically lower rate (30 liters per day).
The Sawyer Difference
Sawyer is the only company that tests 100% of our filters and purifiers before leaving our production facility to ensure that each and every filters is fully operational. We are the only hollow fiber filter company that can make this claim and this is one of the reasons why our filters are far superior to other filters available on the market. This level of quality control is part of the reason why our filters cost more than other options on the market but when it comes to long term use and reliability, our performance and quality is unmatchable.
