Katadyn Water Filtration

   It doesn't take much to bring an abrupt end to good health on your vacation, a hike, business trip, even at home when there's contaminated water (especially during a crisis)!  The Katadyn water filters have the best record we've found.  Take a filter such as the Combi, Pocket or Mini with you when you travel.  Pure water is so important we recommend you buy extra elements along with your filter.

Cross section of the Katadyn Ceramic Element

   The microporous filter element made of KatadynŽ Ceramic with a pore size of 0.2 micron reliably retains 100% of all the microorganisms that cause diseases (see chart).  There is never any need to boil your water or to use chemicals in conjunction with using any of these fine filters.  Silver, incorporated into the ceramic, is used as a disinfectant to continuously eliminate the threat of bacteria from entering the filter from the outlet tap.

   Any of the models using carbon reduces iodine, chlorine & other chemicals that present potential health hazards plus eliminates bad taste & malodorous materials.

   The ceramic elements can be easily regenerated by simply brushing its surface.  The cleaning can be repeated approximately 300 times before the Katadyn Ceramic filter element has to be replaced (instructions included with each filter).  See chart for expected lifetime of each filter element.

   Note:  Because of Katadyn's reliability, safety, ruggedness, longevity, ease of operation, cleaning, and low maintenance, Katadyn is a contract supplier to the U.S. Armed Forces (Navy SEALS, Army Operations' Force, Marine Corps, etc.) and the U.S. National Parks & Forest Service, along with many others worldwide.

Listed below are the Bacteria and Protozoa that are eliminated 100% by the Katadyn Filters:  Tests confirming the effectiveness and reliability of Katadyn filters have been conducted by university, government and independent laboratories.
