HOW IT WORKS
0.1 Micron Absolute Filtration
Our water filters contain a high number of tiny ‘U’ shaped hollow fiber micro-tubes that trap contaminants while allowing decontaminated water to freely pass through at a high flow rate — eliminating the need to store water and reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.
The Sawyer MINI is certified for 0.1 micron filtration, meaning there is no pore size larger than 0.1 micron in size. This makes it impossible for harmful bacteria (like salmonella or leptospirosis), protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi to pass through the filter.
All Sawyer water filters meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended removal rates.
The Tap Filter is intuitive. Simply attach the filter to a standard faucet tap (17-20mm in size) or hose bib spigot, turn on the water, and filter into a clean container. Small and lightweight, the Tap Filter is designed for you to keep at hand in any drawer, toiletry bag, or emergency preparedness kit –– without the bulk. Just be sure to always use higher pressure when backwashing the filter to maximize the filter’s flow rate and longevity.
Stemming from Sawyer’s global welfare initiatives, the Tap Filter provides a brand-new option for families and communities around the world to access the benefits of Sawyer’s water filtration technology. Sawyer filters have been distributed internationally to bring clean water to families in need, including some filters still in use after 10+ years. The new Tap Filter will broaden the reach of the charitable arm of the brand, Sawyer International, securing clean water to those who might have plumbing but not guaranteed to be pathogen-free.
