Re: Re: The sweet irony

Re: Re: Downside of Sawyer Filters?

Downside of Sawyer Filters?
Ok, I've been looking into new filters. The Sawyer microtubule-based four-way filter looks interesting. Sawyer makes a 0.1 micron filter that removes 4.5 log of viruses and thus nearly meets ...

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
