There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
I've been following up with Katadyn customer service to get a replacement part. It's been six weeks and there has been no resolution.
This filter is small, light, and it gets the job done! Pumping enough enough water for 6-8 people at a time is a breeze and only take about 5-10 minutes depending on size and number of bottles. Not only is this filter fast but it provides great tasting water.
The intake hose has a pre-filter screen on the end to eliminate larger particles before they get to the main carbon filter but I would suggest adding a coffee filter over top of the intake hose to extend the life of the filter if you plan on filtering some especially nasty water. Make sure to keep the out take hose stored in its clean hose bags to avoid cross contamination with the intake hose.
A few things to look out for:
When ever you first purchase this and begin to filter water through it, you will see lots of little black specs in the water. That is the carbon from the filter and will eventually go away after use.
Generally when this unit becomes hard to pump, it is a sign that the filter needs to be replaced. Before purchasing a replacement filter that runs ~$45, check and see if the o-ring simply needs lubed.
Don't forget to clean it out and let dry between outings.
This filter does not remove viruses so if viruses are a concern for you, wither purchase a different (more expensive) filter or combine this filter with other preventative methods such as iodine tablets or boiling your water.
Over all this is a great little filter. Weighing in at 11 ounces, this is one of the lightest pump filters on the market and well worth the price and convenience it offers.
