People who are considering such long time use of a water filter should not purchase the Gravidyn Water Filter because the effective life span of the central charcoal core is only six months. When I call Katadyn about its effectiveness past six months, they warned me that the charcoal core could develop mold after that time and is impossible to clean effectively. So I am purchasing a new Ceradyn filter for our up-coming work in Liberia.
There are TWO models of this filtering system, and it is CRITICAL to understand the differences, because they are identical containers from the outside: Its the ceramic filters that are different between the Ceradyn and the Gravidyn.
The The Ceradyn can filter up to 39,000 gallons. The Gravidyn filters must be replaced when they are 6 months old. Both of these filters can produce up to 15 gallons / day with clear water. (The more solids in the water, the slower it filters the water.) So.. at BEST the Gravidyn will filter 2,790 gallons before the filters have to be replaced. This is because they have a core that is made of activated charcoal and can start to grow bacteria. Since the charcoal is past the ceramic filter section, the bacteria can re-contaminate the filtered water.
That is a big difference: 39,000 (Ceradyn) vs 2,790 Gravidyn) gallons. In fact, at 15gal/day, the Ceradyn will last a little over 7 years (filtering clear, low particulate water.) The point is, one is a long term survival tool (Ceradyn) and the other is a short term survival tool (Gravidyn).
The Gravidyn has an important ability the Ceradyn does not have. The Activate Charcoal absorbs odor, bad taste, and some chemicals.Read more ›
Since I have had this Katadyn Drip water filter in my home, I have had complete confidence in what I am drinking and what I am making my pets drink.
I bought this filter system after doing tons of research. It is the only one where you are not enslaved to some company in having to buy their expensive new filters every 6 months. I detest companies that enslave their buyers with the need to purchase expensive items in order to use the initial purchase (for instance Epson computer printers, as well as most other water filter companies).
I also learned that this filter is used around the world and sits on the kitchen counters of homes all around the world because it works. It is passive and reliable. The filters it comes with are good for so many gallons that it is amazing and gives one a good sense of having a very good water filter. In this day and age of poor Water Management and the prospect of intense storms and hurricanes that might effect water supply, this filter is perfect.
I called the manufacturer and they advised cleaning the three filters when you first get it to wipe off any dust. Then just set it up, very simple and a child could do it. At first the drip was so slow I thought I'd be waiting a life-time for a cup of water. But it speeds up overtime and it is easy to keep a good supply of clean water at all times. You get used to seeing the big friendly white elephant on the counter-top. Especially because you know it is full of healthy, drinkable and reliable water.Read more ›
