Care Plus Water Filter

 35,50 incl. 21% VAT

You don’t always have access to clean drinking water when you travel. Or you have to use water in plastic bottles, but of course, this isn’t good for the environment. A cheap and easy way to purify water into really clean drinking water is by using the outdoor Water Filter by Care Plus. The Care Plus water filter is different from others because of its low weight (only 65 g), ease of use and durability; you can filter up to 375,000 l of water with this filter. Unlike other water filters, this filter is really easy to use. The supplied straw allows you to drink straight from water while it’s being filtered, there’s no resistance when you drink. You can also choose to attach the filter to a standard bottle or the supplied pouch or use the filter in combination with your camel bag. You can clean the filter after use by using the supplied syringe.

It’s also convenient when combined with the Nalgene water bottle that can easily be filled below a waterfall or in a stream due to its wide mouth. And it can also be used to store the set after use.

You don’t always have access to clean drinking water when you travel. Or you have to use water in plastic bottles, but of course, this isn’t good for the environment. A cheap and easy way to purify water into really clean drinking water is by using the outdoor Water Filter by Care Plus. The Care Plus water filter is different from others because of its low weight (only 65 g), ease of use and durability; you can filter up to 375,000 l of water with this filter. Unlike other water filters, this filter is really easy to use. The supplied straw allows you to drink straight from water while it’s being filtered, there’s no resistance when you drink. You can clean the filter after use by using the supplied syringe.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The 0,1-micron hollow fiber membrane filter is based on a technology used in medical dialysis and uses a cluster of microfiber ducts. The water enters the hollow center of the ducts through the ducts’ walls and flows out through the ends of the ducts, leaving harmful bacteria and protozoa outside of the duct walls.

WHAT WATER CAN YOU FILTER WITH THE WATER FILTER?

The filter blocks bacteria and Protozoa, not viruses, chemicals, hard metals or tastes. So there’s a lot of water you can filter, as long as there are no viruses present in the water. A good guideline is: if the locals can drink the water, so can you with this filter. It’s possible to filter any water, but if it’s very dirty you should clean the filter with clean water after every use. This prevents the filter from getting clogged and water no longer getting through.

WHAT TYPE OF WATER BOTTLES DOES THE WATER FILTER FIT ONTO?

You can use the supplied straw to drink directly from a stream, but you can also attach the filter to a standard bottle or the supplied pouch, using the included screw top. Or you can use the filter with your camel bag. We really like using the water filter with the durable Nalgene water bottle. What’s convenient is that the entire set can be stored inside the bottle after use, because the water bottle has such a wide mouth. This keeps everything together and allows you to always have a bottle handy to filter a liter of water. You can easily fill the bottle below a waterfall, in a river or at a mountain lake.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wet before first use. Slowly squeeze the water through the filter when
    first using it to slowly soak the fibers.
  2. Unscrew the top/filter from the pouch.
  3. Fill the pouch with water.
  4. Screw the top/filter back onto the pouch.
  5. Wipe the dirty water off of the pouch.
  6. Open the push-pull valve on the top/filter.
  7. Squeeze the pouch and the water or drink from the push-pull top.
  8. Close the push-pull top after use.
  9. Clean (see Flush-back).
  10. Store (see How to store).

HOW TO CLEAN THE WATER FILTER

  1. Remove the top/filter from the pouch.
  2. Remove the push-pull top.
  3. Fill the syringe with clean water.
  4. Place the syringe on the opening where you removed the push-pull
    top.
  5. Point the filter away from you.
  6. Forcefully squirt the water from the syringe into the filter.
  7. Repeat several times.

HOW TO STORE THE WATER FILTER

We advise you to clean the filter again before storing it. Let it air dry and store in a cool, dry place (at least 5 °C) or store it when wet and clean it before use. Please note: filters should not be exposed to water with a temperature over 60 °C.
