Sawyer PointONE™ Bucket and Faucet Water Filter
This commercial version of the bucket filter can be purchased from an authorized Sawyer International Dealer abroad. We’ve made it as simple as it gets. No more digging wells if there is a water source, no constructing sand filters, and no more purification chemicals. No one has to boil their water to make it safe ever again.
Families are able to hook up their filter literally in minutes to almost any locally found container.
The gravity-operated filter and fast flow rate mean anyone, anywhere can have clean water in a matter of seconds.
The kit includes everything you need to attach the filter to a water faucet or any plastic bucket or container. Just 4-inches long and less than 8 ounces, the Sawyer Pointone can deliver 1 liter of clean water in 60 seconds.
- Over 1800 liters of potable water a day, cleaner than US bottled water…anywhere in the world.
- Attach the filter to the faucet adapter to filter water straight from a household faucet
- Simple gravity operated design – no electricity, no pumping required, just fill with any source water

Our filters and purifiers have been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories according to EPA standards for water filter and purifiers.
+What is the difference between the PointONE™ and Point ZEROTWO™ Filtration Systems and how do I know which to use?
First, Sawyer’s filters and purifiers are rated in Absolute Microns. This means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 or 0.02 micron in size on the PointONE™ and PointZEROTWO™ respectively. This means that it is impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giradia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer filters and purifiers. At 7 log (99.99999%) the filter attains the highest level of filtration available today. The PointZEROTWO™ filter removes both bacteria and viruses.
Sawyer PointONE™ Filtration
The PointONE™ filtration system is usually all you would need unless you are traveling internationally (developing countries) where waterborne viruses such as hepatitis and/or Polio are present. This system removes all harmful pathogens from your water.
Sawyer PointZEROTWO™ Purifier
If viruses are an issue, we offer the PointZeroTWO™ Purifier (0.02 micron absolute pores), the first and thus far only portable purification device to physically remove viruses which it does at a >5.5 log (99.9997%) rate, exceeding EPA and NSF recommendations. Due to the significantly higher level of filtration, PointZEROTWO’s flow rate is considerably slower than the PointONE™ filters.
North America vs. Third World Countries
In North America we do not have concerns about viruses in our water. They simply cannot survive. Viruses derive from contaminated human sewage and die shortly after entering a body of water. In Third World countries outbreaks have occurred due to poor treatment of sewage. Sewage without viruses can be handled by the PointONE™ filter. The only viruses with the potential to survive in water are hepatitis (which is rare) and Polio (which is extremely rare). You can contact CDC for information on virus outbreaks in areas for which you are traveling.
The pointONE Filter™ has a 0.1 micron absolute pore size and therefore will remove all bacteria and protozoa such as Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Cholera and Typhoid. The PointZERO TWO Purifier™ has a 0.02 micron absolute pore size and therefore will remove all viruses like Hepatitis A in addition to bacteria and protozoa.
