This water filter gets some style points, but it provides a sturdy and heavy-duty construction that makes it reliable in a variety of conditions. The ceramic-micro strainer removes particles, bacteria, cysts, and parasites down to 0.2 microns in size, including giardia and cryptosporidia.
The system comes with 2 abrasive pads to clean the ceramic filter, which is also silver-impregnated to inhibit bacterial growth inside the filter. The filter included with the unit is good for up to 13,000 gallons of water, saving costs over the long term since you won't be frequently purchasing replacement filters.
This filter is made for rough and difficult conditions that would break lesser filters. If you need a nearly unbreakable filter, this is the one to get.
