Buyer Reviews
I have been using this model of First Need Purifiers for 9 years. Along with this purchase, I suggest you also purchase a replacement filter ($50), and a wide mouth one liter BPA-free water bottle for each person going to use the purifier, although you can pump into any kind of container, I feel it is \"safer inch to screw onto a water bottle. This recent purchase is for my parent's \"Hurricane Kit\"..... I have one for my \"Earthquake Kit\", and keep one with my backpacking gear. In the \"aftermath inch of a catastrophe, it is comforting to know you can have potable water without disease or chemical contamination--definitely worth the $100-$130 to live!!Purifier weight is 16oz--Treats 180 gallons (681 liters) with one cartridge--I keep count with liters treated with sharpie mark on filter.I've treated water from mud puddles to animal drinking ponds, with no issues. Very pleased with performance and ease of use. It has withstood the abuse of long backpacking trips and scouts!! Only drawback is cleaning and drying it for storage--but isn't that with anything??
