Ceramic filters have a micro porous structure with impregnated silver which delays the growth of bacteria. The pore-size of Katadyn ceramic filters is 0.2 micron (0.0002 mm). Bacteria range in size from 0.2 to 5 micron and, like protozoa (1 to 15 micron), are efficiently filtered out. Ceramic filters can be mechanically regenerated and the filter capacity is measurable.
Activated carbon is used for its ability to reduce harmful organic and inorganic substances in the water. It removes unpleasant tastes, odors, chlorine, pesticides (lindane, DDT) and trihalomethanes (THMs). These substances adhere to the large surface area of the activated carbon. Activated carbon granulate cannot be regenerated.

We bought ours and set it aside for several months upon receipt. When we finally got around to checking functionality, fortunately before we really needed it, it didn't work. Read morePublished on November 30, 2012 by FF
If there is one thing I won't skimp on in my camping equipment, it's the water filter. Dysentery, or worse, just doesn't sound all that appealing to me. Read morePublished on November 14, 2012 by Big Junda

Katadyn makes great filters. I have a few of them and no complainants. Very well made and they last forever. This one arrived on time and in great shape.Published on September 30, 2012 by Lawrence
