As other reviewers have had the same inlet port breaking as mine, you have been warned. I'm going to research and buy a better water filtration system. This Hiker Pro has a design flaw that you cannot trust it out in the field. I've attached a photo where I you can see the plastic weld around the inlet port is joined to the main body. This is where the failure and design flaw is located.
Additionally, we've had filters that have clogged after two uses and one broken handle.
The Hiker Pro is NOT reliable.
During those same trips where we had problems with the Katadyns, some of the Scouts brought MSR water filters. They held up much better with no breakages and their ceramic filter elements can be scrubbed clean when they get clogged. Not so with the Katadyn pleated filter elements.
1. Make sure you know exactly which hoses go where before you start attaching them. They can be very difficult to remove once you put them on.
2. BE SURE to use the silicone lubricant when attaching the hoses. I tried to put one on without it and it was 10x harder to connect.
When I got back, I called Katadyn about the broken filter. In less then a minute on the phone, they agreed to send me a new housing case for the filter. Katadyn's service was awesome! I haven't got a chance to use the product again.
The only thing I would suggest to improve the product would be some sort of rubber washer or seal of some kind for the bottle topper part so that it's not just loose and dangling around the top of a bottle when it's filling. Because you'll have one hand on the unit and the other hand on the pump when using it so you need something to hold the topper part to the bottle you're filling. You could just put the hose directly into the bottle or whatever though without that part if you need.
Another thing I couldn't really figure out how to do was get the rest of the water in the pump out before sealing it all back up in the bag. I tried upside down pumping (even though I think I read somewhere not to do that). It seemed like the handle didn't want to close all the way before it was empty of water and then later on while hiking any leftover water inside it managed to leak out and get stuff in my bag wet. Maybe I just needed to keep pumping air for a while or something but if there was some sort of purge valve that would have been good for the last little bit.
It's a great product though. A literal life saver when water is too hard to carry with your already 50 pound backpack. I highly recommend it.
