Designed for use with taps:
- Caravan / Vanlife
- After Hurricanes / Cyclones
- Boil Alerts
- Traveling Overseas
Introducing the Sawyer Tap Filter, a new addition to Sawyer’s line of high-performance water filtration systems. The Sawyer Tap Filter removes biological contaminants, guaranteeing immediate clean drinking water when you need it most. Great to use when traveling, during boil alerts, or in emergencies when safe drinking water is compromised, the Tap Filter is easy-to-use and will filter to up to 500 gallons (1900 Litres) of clean drinking water per day.
It’s the ideal component for use during natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes. Hitting the road? Consider the Tap Filter your pocket-sized peace of mind for all questionable sources –– campgrounds, festivals, events, in RVs, and when traveling internationally. Filter your caravan water before it goes into the water tank or fillup from any tap while on the move.
How it works:
0.1 Micron Absolute Filtration
All Sawyer filters contain a high number of tiny ‘U’ shaped hollow fiber micro-tubes that trap contaminants while allowing the filtered water to freely pass through at a high flow rate. This immediate filtration process eliminates the need to store water and reduces the possibility of water contamination after filtering. The Sawyer Tap Filter is certified at 0.1-micron filtration. This means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 micron in size, which makes it impossible for harmful bacteria (like salmonella or leptospirosis), protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi to pass through the filter. All Sawyer water filters meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended removal rates.
The Tap Filter is intuitive. Simply attach the filter to a standard faucet tap (17-20mm in size) or hose bib spigot, turn on the water, and filter into a clean container. Small and lightweight, the Tap Filter is designed for you to keep at hand in any drawer, toiletry bag, or emergency preparedness kit –– without the bulk. Just be sure to always use higher pressure when backwashing the filter to maximize the filter’s flow rate and longevity.
Joining the fleet of Sawyer filters, the Tap Filter is built with the Sawyer Standard and offers the highest level of filtration available today. Each filter cleans water at an industry-leading 0.1 absolute micron standard and is triple-tested before leaving the factory. The filter’s hollow fiber membrane is constructed with fibers so robust, each unit can be backwashed, allowing the filter to be reused over and over again. This rigorous standard eliminates the need for any bottled water and assures confidence when clean water is unreliable.
Stemming from Sawyer’s global welfare initiatives, the Tap Filter provides a brand-new option for families and communities around the world to access the benefits of Sawyer’s water filtration technology. Sawyer filters have been distributed internationally to bring clean water to families in need, including some filters still in use after 10+ years. The new Tap Filter will broaden the reach of the charitable arm of the brand, Sawyer International, securing clean water to those who might have plumbing but not guaranteed to be pathogen-free.
