Product Information

Filling Aquamira Water Bottle and Carbon Filter KitUnlike conventional backpacker’s filters, which have hoses and pump mechanisms, the Aquamira filter bottle is easy and intuitive to use.

The Aquamira filter uses advanced carbon block technology. The activated carbon core of the filter creates a "tortuous path" to strain out harmful pathogens such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium, and larger bacteria. Unlike thin membrane filters, the thicker carbon block prevents pathogens like Giardia from "blowing through" the filter under pressure from the water stream.

In independent testing the Aquamira filter removed 99.9% of pathogens 2 microns and larger (most protozoans, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium, are larger than 3 microns. The filter also effectively removes chlorine and other chemical flavors. This makes it ideal for use in conjunction with chemical water treatments.

Chemical treatments are recommended when viruses may be present in the water, as when traveling in developing countries or popular natural areas (viruses are too small to be removed by filtration alone). Used in conjuction with chemical treatment, the Aquamira filter provides the benefit of removing organisms that may be too large to be inactivated by chemical treatment; i.e. mosquito larvae.

The Aquamira filter treats up to 200 refills of the bottle, depending on initial water clarity.

Note: portable backpackers and travelers filters, such as the Aquamira filter bottle, are not effective against industrial, agricultural or residential pollutants and are not recommended for use where they may be present.
