0.02 Micron Absolute
water filters contain a high number of tiny ‘U’ shaped hollow fiber micro-tubes
that trap contaminants while allowing decontaminated water to freely pass
through at a high flow rate — eliminating the need to store water and reducing
the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.
for 0.02 micron absolute filtration, the Point ZeroTwo Purifier has no pore
size larger than 0.02 micron in size — enabling it to remove 99.997% of viruses
(exceeding EPA and NSF recommendations). It also effectively removes harmful
bacteria (like salmonella), protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio
cholerae, and Salmonella typhi.
A Lifetime of Clean
Point ZeroTwo Purifier’s filtering membranes are sturdy enough to withstand
backwashing using the included syringe, restoring up to 98.5% of the filter’s
Point ZeroTwo system can be cleaned and reused almost indefinitely with no
expensive cartridges to replace… ever. We recommend backwashing and sanitizing
the filter after every outing for optimized use.
field maintainable, the Gravity Purification System includes a faucet adapter
for a more thorough backwash when you get back home.

you have purchased any of the Sawyer water filtration products that came with their
One Million Gallon Guarantee. They will
of course honor that commitment to you.
recently that guarantee was challenged by one of their competitors by filing a
complaint with the National Advertising Division of the U.S. Better Business
Bureau. They challenged their ability to support that claim
scientifically. Unfortunately the data
which Sawyer feels support the claim contains proprietary information that they
were unwilling to share. Therefore while
these products are exactly the same, they will now come with a revised
warranty; which is a Lifetime Warranty against any manufacturing defects. The
filters contain a code such that Sawyer will know under which warranty you
purchased the product.
is proud to say that throughout the millions of filters which they have shipped
in the U.S. retail market and throughout the world for disaster relief and for
home use in developing nations very few have ever been returned for damage to
the filter as a result of their handling or in distribution. Each of Sawyers filters is tested 3 times to
insure that they will work as claimed.
Not some random statistical testing but every single filter is tested
three times at three different quality control points throughout its assembly
Statements Concerning Their Filters
help you enjoy your filter experience let us share with you the three most
common issues which arise with these filters.
1) “The filter is so clogged that it must be
defective”. We have yet to receive a
filter or be unable to talk a customer through the process to clean and fully
restore a clogged filter. Consumers
often confuse our filters with other brand hollow fiber membrane filters which
cannot be cleaned as aggressively as our filters can. If you follow the cleaning and storing
instructions you will be able to fully enjoy the Sawyer filters for a lifetime.
leaks at the intake”. The intake side of
the screw on filters come with a washer to buffer a snug fit with the dirty
water vessel. Some people are prone to
over tightening the connection (and you know who you are) and thus they unseat
the washer either causing it to jam up into the filter or fall out. With just a reasonable tightening of the
filter to the vessel, this will not happen.
The washers are replaceable if you damage or loose one.
3) “I froze the filter, is it still good”? The simple answer is no. There is no way to know if the fibers were
damaged when frozen. The test to find
out is very expensive and far greater than the value of the filter. Therefore, it is best to replace the
filter. The instructions clearly states
that freezing the filter after wetting voids the warranty. If a filter has never been used then freezing
will not affect the fibers. But once water is introduced to the filter, it will
never completely dry out.
hope these tips help you enjoy and use your Sawyer filter safely and to the
full extent of its capabilities.
