Cleaning and maintenance instructions
How it works:
From technology used in medical dialysis, the 0.1 micron absolute filter uses a cluster of micro-fibrous tubes. Water is drawn through the side walls into their hollow centre and out the end of the tubes, while harmful bacteria and protozoa are trapped on the outer walls of the tubes.

Down in the river to drink
I sure aint tried it yet but it looks well made, its easy to use and if it stops them little critters givin me belly-ache well thats good enough for me.
Simple, reliable, pocket sized, effective and affordable.
I generally use it as a gravity feed filter attached to an old hydration bladder. In much of the world viral water contamination isn't much of an issue so this would be ideal.
I would recommend combining with an activated carbon to reduce agricultural runoff chemichals, chlorine from tap water or unpleasant tastes.
Ive been using this mostly in the Scottish Highlands. Ive never been much worried about water up in the hills, but sometimes the source can be a bit dodgy and this filter gives me complete confidence. Whilst it is brilliant, very peaty Highland water clogs it up quickly. Back flushing pushes out a rush of mucky stuff, and works for the first couple of times, but eventually only bleaching seems to clear it. This is a pity as Im not planning on carrying bleach! In the worst case the flow got very bad after 3 days: it still worked - just slowly. Also note that this is no good if there are possible chemical contaminants ... active carbon required.
