This is a really great filter! Used this in Africa. It does take a lot of hard work to get enough water for large groups. We had 29 people in our group. We were digging wells. When we got to the village our first priority was to get clean water for the team. The only water for miles was a watering hole. The water was, murky, gray and well.... frightening. After we ran it through this filter it was clear and safe to drink. We put two people on water duty per day. Taking turns two people working at least eight hours can get enough drinking and cooking water for a large group.

This is an exceptional water filter. It is an expensive item but an absolute must have for anyone concerned about a potential loss of fresh water. Due to power outages, hurricane's, or worse. You can pump drinkable water from any stream, pond, or standing body of water. I would highly recommend any Katadyn product because in any situation you can only go about 3 days without fresh water.

Made in Switzerland, Katadyn makes makes the worlds premier water filters and the Katadyn Expedition is no exception. This filter is built to last and is surely to come in handy during an adventure vacation or in your own backyard during a SHTF scenario; I intend to use this filter to provide pure drinking water for many of my friends and neighbors when the time comes...whether that time is tomorrow (unlikely) or 20 years from now, this filter will still be a good as new, ready for the call. ~Semper Paratus!
Almost forgot to mention, this product comes highly recommended by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and editor of Natural News dot com.

I really wonted a good filtration unit in case we suffer a water problem. If your family needs the option to have safe water in a crisis this will give you security. Anything from a well going bad to a bigger problem in large water system this helps you to be safe option. I have purchased a couple other systems and this is the best unit of my group. I am a plumbing contractor with energy star certification and was a certified well operator so for me this is a safety issue.

I bought this water filter because when the time comes to provide water for my family and friends I wanted the best, most dependable water filter available. With this filter I have peace of mind and have also bought several extra ceramic inserts.
My advice, spend the money on this filter. No other filter compares.

I have the smaller version. This is a great product especially for a large group or when camping you don't have to bring water with you
