    I am working on a concept of turning a Sawyer point one water filter into a group based water filter. Here on the property I have a clear running stream. The stream has a sandy bottom, about 20 feet wide, 6 inches deep and flows year round. The idea goes like this: Dirty water bag Clear...

    Did some testing of this multi-configuration filter. Thought I would share. I plan on taking it out on more trips. I like that you can use it as a straw, in a bottle, in-line with a water bladder and also has a faucet adapter. Anyone else test the sawyer filters? Searched the forum and...

    Howdy y'all, I'm new to prepping. I've spent much of the last month researching, reading, thinking, etc., on my prepping strategy. Foodwise I should be ok ... I live just a few miles from a LDS cannery that is open to the public on Wednesdays (I called to verify)... and the prices are very...

    Are these things too good to be true? I don't have money to waste and would love some opinions. I have set aside $300 so far and could order a Point Zero Two bucket system and two or three of the Sawyer Squeeze systems if these things work the way I think they do. I have read a bunch of...

    Having spent some thought and some effort towards researching the subject (see thread http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=197361 ) Treating water with forms of bleach for disinfection are beyond the capability of the average person. Due to the fact of chlorine products decaying...

    I have other filters but after reading about this one I had to try it. Just got it for a home filter. Got free buckets from Walmart. It came with everything including a drill bit. I will get it together this weekend and give it a test.

    I have to preface my introduction by saying that I have been reading over these boards for the past few weeks, and I am very intrigued. I would normally dismiss people doing what you guys are doing as lunatics. However, I can't help but agree with the unifying sentiment here that it would be...

    Are there any articles or how to's on making your own water purifier for a BOB or camping situation? I have a Sawyer filter that I use for camping, but I really feel that my BOB needs it's own water purifier that I know will always be there if I need it.

  11. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    Hey guys I just seen that www.sawyersafetravel2.com finally have the Sawyer Point Zero Two Purifier Bucket Adapter Kit back in stock. They have been back ordered since the Japan earthquake. I have heard they are one of the best filters but have only seen videos of dirty water coming out clear on...

    Hi Guys I have been humming and hawing over which water filter to buy. I think that a serious "delux" travel model is the "Katadyn Pocket" The specs states that it filters down to 0.2 microns and will filter 13,000 gal (50,000 L) which is very impressive. It's price is around $300 and it...

    I have seen the recommendation for inline water filters, but what is the best inexpensive filter for say rain barrel water, or pond water etc.:cool:
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm sorry but I'm not a hiker so filters/purifiers are new to me. I apologize that I started a new topic about this because I have a a thread that is KIND OF related but I was afraid it wouldn't get seen. I got an MSR EX Miniworks and thought about returning for the Sawyer 4L Complete...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Ok, I had been looking at the MSR EX Miniworks for ages. Pulled the trigger shipped for $76.46 However, I'm thinking I should have gone another route. I starting thinking about the gravity fed ones when I saw the Sawyer filter kit for about $60. What was a turn off for me was that it needed a...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Anyone here know how to test a water filter or water that's being filtered through the water filter? Well, the reason I'm asking is because I just received my Sawyer SP194 water filter/purifier today. After testing the newly filtered water with my buddy's Zero water filter meter, we were...

    Anybody here have one or used one? Saw some guys on Youtube used it and thought it was pretty neat. It's guaranteed for 1 million gallons. :eek: That's insane. Is it too good to be true? Thinking about getting one for my BOB if it's really THAT great. What do you guys think?
  19. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    I'm want buying a water filter for camping/wilderness hikes. So that I can keep the weight down in my pack, I'm not to concerned about space, just the weight. I don't always want to start a small fire or setup a stove to boil the water. I really don't like using chemicals for purifying water...
