Filtration on the Fly

Personal Water Filtration Bottle

Weighing just 5.5 ounces, the durable, BPA free Personal Water Bottle Filter delivers fresh, clean water as fast as you can drink it. Great for everyday hydration, camping, or taking on trips, simply fill the 34-ounce water bottle from a river, lake, or faucet and start drinking from the included straw.

Incorporating our trusted water filter, the Personal Water Bottle offers 0.1 micron absolute filtration and removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera, leptospirosis, and E.coli as well as 99.9999% of all protozoa (such as giardia and cryptosporidium).

In addition to drinking from the water bottle, you can also use the included filter inline with a hydration pack’s tubing or as an ultra-light filter for producing clean water for groups in the backcountry.

Personal Water Filtration Bottle

How It Works

0.1 Micron Absolute Filtration

Our water filters contain a high number of tiny ‘U’ shaped hollow fiber micro-tubes that trap contaminants while allowing decontaminated water to freely pass through at a high flow rate — eliminating the need to store water and reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.

The Personal Filtration Bottle is certified for 0.1 micron filtration, meaning there is no pore size larger than 0.1 micron in size. This makes it impossible for harmful bacteria (like salmonella), protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella typhi to pass through the filter.

All Sawyer water filters meet or exceed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended removal rates.

Product Features

Filtration on the Fly

An ultralight solution to getting water instantly, our Personal Water Bottle Filter gives you a number of ways to access clean water. Simply fill up the bottle at any water source — lake, stream, or faucet — screw the cap back on, and start sipping on clean water from the straw as quickly as you can drink.

You can also squeeze water out of the bottle to fill other containers with little resistance, or remove the filter from the bottle and attach it inline to hydration pack tubing.

We’ve designed the cap to fit standard 63mm wide mouth water bottles, so you can quickly switch the filter to any other compatible bottle.

A Lifetime of Clean Water

This system’s filtering membranes are sturdy enough to withstand backwashing using the included syringe, restoring up to 98.5% of the filter’s flow rate.

The filter can be cleaned and reused almost indefinitely with no expensive cartridges to replace… ever. We recommend backwashing and sanitizing the filter after every outing for optimized use.

FAQs

  • Q: ViewHow often should I backwash my filter?

    We recommend backwashing your filter when you flow rate begins to diminish, before prolonged storage, and when you are ready to start using your filter again.  Backwashing your filter after storage is a great way to re-wet the filters and restore the flow rate before use.

  • Q: ViewDoes the Sawyer filter remove taste, chemicals and heavy metals from water?

    Taste

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

    Chemicals

    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.

  • Q: ViewDo you have more information about Sawyer’s Label Claims and Warranties?

    We have independent lab tests using EPA protocols and information about our filters and their warranties available on our Downloads Page.

  • Q: ViewFilter 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.

  • Q: ViewHow 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.

  • Q: ViewHow 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.
