When the pore size of common filters get too small, water
will not pass through in any desirable amount unless you
to force it through the filter. Then, when using pressure
the filter will eventually clog, especially in a very dirty
water source - and very clog up, sometimes very quickly.
Many hikers know the problems.
The membrane has a molecular-weight cutoff of 400...tight
enough to reject even viral DNA fragments in the contaminated
water source. This forward osmosis system holds many advantages
over complex Reverse Osmosis systems that use hydraulic
pressure to drive water through a filter by using natural
osmotic processes that passively draw water through the
The result is pure fluids without the cost, fuel requirement,
pumping, clogging and maintenance issues of reverse osmosis...and
a filter system that is simple enough for a child to use
Diabetics may / may not be able to use this filter because
it does make the water sweet with the sugar. This is good
for many other people because it gives you energy. The great
thing about this filter is that you don't have to use just
regular sugar, you can use 10-K drink mix and then you get
a sweet drink with electrolytes in the water which will
rejuvenate the body. The sugar content of the water is 3%
or less, a level barely perceptible to taste.
The Ultimate filter requires no energy, fuel, moving parts,
hand-pumping, chemicals, or pre-treatment. Once the filter
is charged with sugar and placed in water, it automatically
begins pumping clean water.
Our filter drastically reduces the logistics burden of
supplying remote sites with clean water. The 14 inch cartridge
pictured above produces an average of 8 liters per day on
a single 250 ml sugar charge, an ideal solution for individual
or small group needs.
To serve the needs of large groups, these cartridges are
configured to be gravity fed in parallel...a low maintenance,
low-hassel means of producing thousands of liters per day
of Reverse Osmosis (RO)-quality water, anywhere in the world.
We live in an uncertain world these days and we must have
protection against biological agents which do include viruses.
Viruses can be a major problem in terrorized areas. You need
to protect your family as best as you know how and can afford
to do. Water, Food & Shelter are the main things needed
to survive. You can go just a few days without water and you
can go about a month without food. So don't skimp on your
water quality, it could lead to disaster - dehydration - then
This is even an excellent daily filter when used with the
10-K or Gatorade drink mixes. Having a habit of using this
filter will lessen your susceptibility of being a terror victim
as water supplies in cities are terror targets, and they are
HIGH on their lists. So when terrorist strike, don't drink
the water until you can validate that the water is safe to
Another great quality of our Ultimate Water Filter is that
it will greatly reduce heavy metals in the water. This is
a major advantage over many other fitlers. There is really
no other filter on the market that can accomplish the task
that our Ultimate Water Filter can given the same circumstances.
