KATADYN VARIO MICROFILTER WATER

$94.99

Gotta love this filter. Three filtering options. Clear to Muddy Water. Up to 500 Gallons.

Perfect for a small group, the award winning Katadyn Vario is a powerful companion in a small, lightweight package. This variable filter offers higher output or longer life, your choice!

To get the best filter life and far less filter cleaning use this simple rule. If the water looks clear, put it through your filter. Otherwise, pour the water thru a coffee filter or something similar to remove the large dirty particles from the water. It’s the large particles in the water that will clog your filter very quickly. If the filter is cleanable, frequent cleaning/scrubbing will also reduce the filter life. If the filter is a one use disposable filter dirty water will drastically reduce the amount of water you will be able to filter.

Description

The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling. The technology it uses consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fiber filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odors. Anyone who needs up to two liters of drinking water per minute can use the glass fiber and active charcoal filter. If the water is extremely cloudy, the ceramic pre-filter can be engaged to extend the service life of the glass fiber filter. The Vario is compatible with most standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders.
Features
  • Vario features a 2-filter system; 1 is a 0.2-micron, pleated glassfiber filter used to remove waterborne bacteria and cysts
  • Secondary ceramic filter, engaged with a simple twist of the casing, is used to prefilter debris in dirty water away from primary filter
  • Keeping turbid water away from the primary filter effectively extends its usable life
  • Vario is also a high-output system, filtering up to 2 qt. per min. in “fast flow mode” (filtering clean water with ceramic filter disengaged)
  • In “longer life mode” (ceramic filter engaged), unit produces 1 qt. per min.
  • Replaceable carbon keeps water tasting fresh and reduces chemicals, toxins and odors through the life of the cartridge
  • Dual-piston technology minimizes the effort required to pump water through the system
  • Unit attaches directly to 63mm wide-mouth bottles (not included) for filling; output hose accommodates hydration systems and large containers
  • Katadyn Vario water filter includes prefilter, cleaning pad, lubricant and carry bag

Output and longevity specifications based on information provided by the manufacturer. Pleated filter comes with a prefilled carbon core. Both filter and carbon are independently replaceable. Carbon can be changed when the taste of water changes. (Carbon typically becomes ineffective after six months of use or approximately 200 liters.) Field cleanable ceramic prefilter should be replaced when completely worn.

To get the best filter life and far less filter cleaning use this simple rule. If the water looks clear, put it through your filter. Otherwise, pour the water thru a coffee filter or something similar to remove the large dirty particles from the water. It’s the large particles in the water that will clog your filter very quickly.
