Water Purifiers vs. Water Filters: Selecting the right treatment option for you

A water filter is designed to remove particles from water including dirt and debris as well as some bacteria and protozoan cysts. Water purifiers remove the same particles, including bacteria and protozoan cysts from contaminated water as filters do, but they also contain electrostatic elements that kill viruses. In most cases, a water filter is sufficient for cleaning water in the United States and Canada as North American water systems are often not contaminated with dangerous viruses. In addition, if you should choose to buy a less expensive water filter as opposed to the more expensive purifiers, you can use a chemical additive to destroy any viruses, which remain after the water is filtered. We at Hunting Shooting Camping Supplies sell a variety of Katadyn water filters at affordable prices.

Microfilters

A microfilter is a water filter with very small openings in the ceramic or fiber element that removes particles, cysts, protozoa, and most bacteria from contaminated water. Like any filter however, a microfilter still cannot remove viruses from water. We sell a number of Katadyn Microfilters designed for both personal use, such as the Katadyn Microfiler Bottle designed to hold up to 21 fluid ounces of water, and for filtering larger amount of water, as with the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter designed to filter up to 1 quart per minute.

One common problem, which occurs with some microfilters is that bacteria can grow on the filter if stored and operated for multiple uses. However, all of the Katadyn Microfilters are designed with stainless steel added to the filter to prevent the growth of dangerous bacteria. If you are interested in buying a Katadyn microfilter for water treatment, you will be pleased with our large selection of Katadyn water filters.

Katadyn Drip Filters vs. Hand Pump Filters

A Katadyn Drip filter, such as the Katadyn TRK Drip Gravidyn Gravity Center, is perfect for filtering large amounts of water. The Katadyn Drip filter can be set up at your camp and will filter one gallon of water per hour. The filter removes pathogenic bacteria and protozoa, including giardia, crypto, cholera, salmonella and e.coli from contaminated water, leaving you with clean, safe drinking water. This large drip filter is convenient because of its self-driven functionality. This filter does not require constant attention to operate like the more tedious hand pump filters.

Hand pump water filters are designed with a manual pump that draws the water up and through the filter. Because these filters must be manually pumped, they may be more difficult and time consuming to use at times. However, their easy portability makes these filters perfect for hiking, biking, and even hunting. We sell a number of Katadyn water filters operated by a hand pump including the Katadyn Pocket Microfilter. So if you are looking to buy a Katadyn water filter, we have the solution for you.
