  • +Does the Sawyer filter remove taste, chemicals and heavy metals from water?


    The Sawyer filter removes taste that comes from bacteria, dirt, and green matter.


    The Sawyer filter does NOT remove iron, sulfur, other chemicals, or simple compounds. Taste can be masked by using flavor additives like Gatorade or crystal light (filter needs to be cleaned immediately after using them).

    Heavy Metals

    The Sawyer filters are not made with charcoal. While other portable filters have charcoal, they lack in amount of media and adequate dwell time. Therefore, they only remove small amounts of heavy metals, pesticides, etc. (when used in real life applications). Try using better sources of water, if possible.

  • +Do you have more information about Sawyer’s Label Claim and Million Gallon Guarantee?

    We have independent lab tests using EPA protocols and information about our Million Gallon Guarantee that are available on our Downloads Page.

    Filtration for Individuals

    If you are looking for a filter you will be using for yourself, the following products will be best for you needs.

    The Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System is our newest and most popular filter. The Mini weighs just 2 ounces and filters up to 100,000 gallons!  You can drink directly from the Mini, attach it to Sawyer Squeeze Pouches, use inline on a hydration pack, or attach it to the top of almost any bottled water? How about that for versatility? And like all Sawyer Filters; they are backflushable almost indefinitely. That means no expensive cartridges to replace, ever. (SP128, SP124)

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter - This is the simple, portable, lightweight system that won Backpacker Magazine’s Editor’s choice in 2012. The threaded filter is also very versatile and also comes with a Million Gallon Guarantee. It is perfect for backpackers who want clean water fast without adding much weight.  (SP129, SP131)

    All-in-One Filter – This versatile system is based off the popular SP131 – Sawyer Squeeze Filter. This system includes a screw on filter, a 32 oz pouch for portability, a faucet adapter to filter tap water, and everything you need all to use it as a bucket gravity filtration system. This is perfect for individual use, groups, and emergency preparedness kits. (SP181)

    Personal Water Filtration Bottle – This is a simple bottle system that comes with a back-flushing syringe. Perfect for traveling to areas where you do not trust the water. (SP140, SP141, SP142)

    2 Liter Gravity Filtration Systems –  One of Sawyer’s time-tested favorites, the Sawyer 2 Liter water filter system will simplify your backcountry to-do list. Simply set it up, and let gravity do the dirty work. No tedious pumping, just set it up and gravity to the work for you. In the time it takes you to turn around and unload your pack, you’ll have clean, fresh water waiting. These systems are available in a single and dual bag setup. (SP161, SP162)

    Filtration for Groups

    If you are looking for something that can provide a larger amount of water for a group of people, the following products will be best for you.

Simply set up the Sawyer water filtration system, and let gravity provide you with 4 liters of fresh, clean water in about 3 minutes. Available in a 4 Liter Single Bag System and in a 4 Liter Dual Bag Complete System. It is good for camping or hiking and longer distances with larger groups or where water is less accessible. (SP183, SP184)

    Portability vs. Stationary

    Whether you are filtering on the go or sticking around a while, we have something for everyone. Our bucket filters, when applied to larger buckets, may be better for keeping in one location, while our Squeeze filters are light and always ready to go.

    Kid Friendly

    Anyone can use our filters. They are low maintenance and light weight which is perfect for kids going on trips to summer camp or to see the world. They are very easy transport and use.

  • +Filter Compatibility

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter can be used in conjunction with a hydration pack. Please see video Sawyer Squeeze with Hydration Pack using Inline Adapter and Sawyer Squeeze with Fast Fill Adapters.

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter with Water Bottles

    The Sawyer Squeeze Filter can also be used on water bottles when you are unsure whether or not it is safe to drink the water.

    The Sawyer Inline Filter

    This convenient filter can be used as an inline filter on a hydration pack, a pre-filter for an existing pump system, with the provided faucet adapter, or with a gravity bag.

  • +How fast should the water come out of my filter?

    Flow rates

    Flow rates vary depending on how clean the filter is and how well you cleaned the filter. Altitude also affects the flow rates (the higher you go the slower the flow. Also, the PointZEROTWO™ filter flows much slower that the Point ONE.

  • +How do I care for my filter during freezing weather?

    Before initial wetting

    Filter is safe from freezing temperatures if it has never been wetted.

    After initial wetting

    While there is no definitive way to tell if a filter has been damaged due to freezing, Sawyer recommends replacing your filter if you suspect that it has been frozen.

    During trips

    If you are in freezing temperatures, we recommend that you store your filter in your pocket or close to your person so that your body heat can prevent freezing. THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR A FROZEN FILTER.

Water Filtration Done Right

Sawyer Water Treatment Bottle

Sawyer Personal Water Bottle with Filter is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good alternative to getting sick! Bought this filter and used it on a camping trip into the Six Rivers National Forest. There was a stream just a short hike from our camp, and I used a whole-house "chunk filter" to exclude aquatic life forms and various other undesirables before running the water through the Sawyer filter (although both filters can be back flushed, the chunk filter extends the life of the Sawyer filter - and eases the "squeamish" factor of bugs in the water you put into the Sawyer filter). It was a little awkward to get the filtered water into a cooking pot, but a length of clear plastic tubing from a hardware store, attached in place of the "drinking straw", solved that. A son and a daughter of mine, both medical lab technicians, agreed it would be better to use the Point Zero Two filter. However, I have not been able to find a way to purchase JUST the Point Zero Two Filter - without buying the very expensive bucket kit as well. (By the way, the literature says the Point Zero Two filter WILL remove viruses.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work!!! Went to Belize with my family while we where there went to a little restaurant. Anything I drank I would pour into my Sawyer Personal Water Bottle first. My family looked at me like I was a nut, that night back on the cruise ship all 7 of them had a stomach virus. Not to be mean but sitting at that big dinner table alone made me laugh. (Thank you for the time alone haha) and yes they all survived but they all have plans on getting there own bottles before the next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little filter. I too brought this with me to Belize. Filtered everything. No illness. However, the lady below commented on her family having a stomach virus and not her. This bottle DOES NOT FILTER VIRUSES!!!  Just to be clear. But great for what it's for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to get a water bottle & filter all-in-1 The Sawyer Personal Water Bottle with Filter is a pretty sweet way to be able to carry a water filter and a water bottle for those that do not need to deal with carrying water in external water bags. And even if you do need to carry a few extra liters of water with you for the long sections of a trail, you can always carry dirty water in the Sawyer water bags and then pour the dirty water into the bottle and you are still good-to-go! The Sawyer Personal Water Bottle with Filter uses the Sawyer Mini inside of it, so its got one of the best non-chemical water filters for hikers that is on the market - an Absolute One Micron filter. There are a number of different companies making these 'filter in a bottle' systems and the Sawyer one is one of two that I grab most often. Here are four changes I would like to see Sawyer make with this product: First is that the plastic bottle flairs out on the bottom - this is a serious pain because it makes it so wide that it does not fit into any pocket in any of my hiking setups, except the side pocket of one specific backpack. If Sawyer had a taller bottle that was narrow for the full length that would be awesome - this is the #1 reason why I do not typically use the Sawyer Personal Water Bottle with Filter and use another brand instead. Second is that the plastic bottle is kind of harder than it needs to be. All of the other 'filter in bottles' that I own have much software plastic, making it a lot easier to squeeze them. This is kinda important if you plan to use this to filter your water into your food bag (cold cook hiking). Third, and in-line with what I just ended the last issue about, is because it is so hard to squeeze the bottle, and because of the fact that the Mini filter only has a small hole on the bottom of it, once the water gets below the point where if you angle the bottle to squeeze the water out, it just sucks air. A method needs to be figured out so that it can continue to suck water until the bottle is almost empty. I did this via hacking up some tubing I had sitting around, but it is still not perfect. Fourth would be a larger hole at the top - Sawyer has it just big enough for a biner, but not big enough to put your finger into, which my other ones have and I have found to be rather nice when I am carrying a bunch of water back to a campsite. Anyway, all four of these issues are rather minor, and mostly pet-peeves on my end. When it comes down to it, the Sawyer Personal Water Bottle with Filter is one very sweet method of carrying dirty water that can be made safe to drink very easily - perhaps the easiest method that there is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good filteration option for backpacking, but.. Used the Sawyer Personal Water Bottle on a trip to the Quetico in Ontario. Plenty of portaging, fishing, and canoeing means hydrating your body often. This is the first year we have used any sort of personal water filtration option for this trip. I have to say I was satisfied with the Sawyer's performance in the thick bush of Ontario. However, I found that the bottle would not decompress during drinking. One of my fellow fisherman's Sawyer bottle seemed to function just fine. I was constantly having to release the bottle top for the actual bottle itself to maintain it's previous form. Aside from deformation of the bottle during use, it seemed to function just fine. The bottle compressing during use and not decompressing is reason enough to knock a star off this otherwise impressive product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from on the go I bought this because i was tired of buying bottles of water, I'm on the road often and i use this daily, great quality and easy to use, only problem is sometimes have to use 16 oz bottle to fill squeeze bag due to squeeze bag height and sink size

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended for backpacking When backpacking I don't cook so, in theory, this bottle seems perfect for meeting my needs.  Unfortunately, not the case in actual practice.  And practice I have, as I carried this thing for thru-hike of the Arizona Trail, as well as through New Mexico on the Continental Divide Trail.  Two months+ of trail time. Problems seem to stem from the pressure equalization vent thingie in the top of the bottle.  I put a Camelbak electrolyte tab in my water. The gas generated by dissolving of the tab seems to force water out the vent and/or the drink tube.  If I flip the top open, all of a sudden there's a big blurp of water dumped out on me. OK, so let's say I leave the top off for a few minutes to let the gas out.  Not at all convenient, but might be worth the effort if that was the only problem.  It's not.  As the bottle rides in the pack side pocket, walking causes the water to eventually slosh out.  After a few minutes, I feel something wet running down my leg.  Not enjoyable.  Water is coming out, eventually through the pressure equalizer, is my guess.  Once the bottle contents are significantly drawn down, this stops, but that's no solution.  Lastly, want to keep your bottle in your sleeping bag overnight, for warmer water that's drinkable in the AM?  Be prepared for water to leak out, presumably through the vent. Very disappointing.
