There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The new bottle is slimmer than the older design and very quickly the sides of the squeeze bottle make contact with the central filter unit (which means you can't squeeze further). Additionally, the discharge hole is wider than the previous design, so now the water sort of dribbles down the mouthpiece. You have to sort of suck and squeeze but even then, you get perhaps 2 or 3 tablespoons of water.
So now I'm going to try to find the old bottles and use the filter from this product with the old bottles.
My advice is to TEST this unit as soon as you get it. Don't wait until the day before the trip to prime the filter and test.
I wish I could return this.
Inspect carefully, parts may be missing.
Ordered Purifier, didn't arrive with purifier filter. See the image of the bottle from the product description.
This item should come with two filters. The black piece is the charcoal...(coconut husk) filter. The white piece is the virustat microfilter purifier 0.2 micron filter. In 2 of three of my orders it was not included.
The replacement filter costs as much as the entire bottle. I didn't have an option for replacement when I requested a return.
The red bottle came with it, and I like the bottle. It did not come with the straw to use without the filter though....
Contacted mfg and they sent missing parts. Excellent support. Bottle works great with filter, or without for everyday use.
There is a fair amount of pressure in the bottle to overcome the filter. You need to squeeze the bottle, not just suck on the mouthpiece to get a drink. The bottle is flexible, and the mouthpiece has a check-valve to allow you to squeeze water out and allow air to flow back in to refill the bottle. It is a little different than non-filtered bottle designs, but it works well. It's a limitation I don't mind for the piece of mind of the extra filtration.
I ordered this water bottle for my daughter to take on a trip where safe drinking water maybe hard to come by. I got the bottle, put it together as the instructions said and tried to prime it as instructed. It was virtually impossible to squeeze. I got on amazon and read either good reviews or what I experience. So I called the company and they said I missed a step in the set up and you have to flush out the carbon filter before had. She asked if I had black flecks in the other parts of the filter and yes I did. She said I clogged the unit and mailed me a new one. Now it works great. Still a little slower but you have to expect that but it is easy to squeeze now.
My daughters are heading out on a mission trip so I ordered each of them one of these because I know how great the purification is. To my disappointment, the filter that came with each bottle is NOT the Virustat filter as listed in the description. These bottles simply came with a Microfiber filter. This filter is not rated for killing bacteria, parasites and viruses.
Again, Katadyn is a great quality product....just know that the filter in this description is not what you will receive.
