Once you have a dirty bag with the filter on the outlet you are ready to rock and roll. You can hook up another hydration bag to fill up, or direct the output into any other container. It just pours filtered water out the hose. Some things to keep in mind is that you may need to burp air out of the filter or it will run very slowly. You also need to maintain the filter by back-flushing for 4 seconds approximately every 8L. I just back-flush it every time I use it so I don't have to keep track. Enjoy saving $70 by being able to plug in a hose for yourself : )
Edit: On my last trip the silty water source clogged this thing up with a quickness! You definitely need some sort of pre-filter for large particles. When I got home it took me about 30 minutes of backflushing and shaking to get out all the gunk, but it seems to be working well again. With a little research I found out the system does not have a built in pre-filter so you would need one there too. I'm going to tape a piece of nylon onto the bottom of my rigged dirty bag and will report back how that works.
Clear running water from the streams was very easy to filter (and pretty darn quick!).
Water from slower moving streams and ponds, i.e. more sediment, took a little longer to filter, but would speed up with a 5-second backwash.
Changed the color of the water from yellowish to clear in no time!
I do recommend you buy the 'Dirty' reservoir and hose kit (or the complete setup) your first time, so you get the full benefit of this filter. If you already have a drip-bag system, this filter could easily replace your current filter in that system.
Definitely will buy another when/if it goes bad, maybe sooner for a back up. I love this system and would highly recommend the actual filter system from Platypus if you don't want to 'make' your own.
I forgot to mention, the taste is fantastic! I was really worried about it and carried many drink mixes to hide the fish poop taste I was sure to find after filtering with this.... NOT SO!Read more ›
