How to use the Pocket filter
The Pocket pumps fast, is relatively light-weight, easy to use and it makes sure that your water will taste great. The improved, round pump handle provides you with better ergonomics and the exhaust hose can be attached to water containers with a simple clip. It is easy to use. Submerge the hose in water, pump and your water will be filtered. The hose is enhanced with a prefilter to filter out most bacteria and a float. Thanks to the float the hose will remain at an ideal depth. Not too deep, because you will be bothered by mud, but also not immediately at the surface where most bacteria accumulate.
Katadyn Pocket filter
The filter cleans approximately 1 litre of water per minute and removes bacteria, protozoa and other pathogens. The micro-organisms cannot pass the pores of the filter(0.2 micron) because of their size. The 0.2 micron filter element can be used up to approximately 55.000 litres. This is a massive amount when compared to other water filters. The included measuring gauge tells you when you need to replace the filter element.
The Pocket can be wrapped to a manageable size. It is not the smallest available filter, but, with the dimensions of 24 x 6 cm and a weight of only 550 grams it will easily slide into a backpack.
Once you know how the pocket works, filtering water will be a piece of cake. That is why we recommend you become acquainted with the filter before you embark upon new adventures. The Katadyn Pocket is a part of the gear of preppers, active travellers and perfect during expeditions.
