  • Activated carbon granulate
  • AntiClog Technology with 0,3 micron glassfiber (no cleaning needed)
  • Output - up to 2 quart/min, up to 2 l/min
  • Capacity (depending on water quality) - 530 gal, 2'000 l (glassfiber)
  • Capacity - 106 gal, 400 l (carbon)
  • Weight - 15 oz (425 g)
  • 7.5 x 4.0 " (19 x 10 cm)
  • The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling. The technology it uses consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fibre filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odours. Anyone who needs up to two litres of drinking water per minute can use the glass fibre and active charcoal filter. If the water is extremely cloudy, the ceramic pre-filter can be fitted in a moment in order to extend the service life of the glass fibre filter. The Vario is compatible with standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders.

 FACTS
  • Outdoors you find everyday changing water conditions. One day it is clear, the other turbid or smells bad.
  • A water filter with different modes of operation is the answer.
  • The new Katadyn filter pump uses ceramic as cleanable dirt shield and glasfibre for microbiological filtration with minimal pump resistance.
  • In mode  LONGER LIFE the turbid water is first prefiltered throught the ceramic disk.
  • When operating in mode  FASTER FLOW the water is directed streight to the glasfibre membrane, increasing the water flow to up to 2 l/min.
  • Replaceable activated carbon granulate reduces chemicals and improves taste and odour.
  • A doual piston mechanism provides continous water flow with minimal effort.
  • Replacement filters are sold seperately (ceramic disk, glasfibre with AC, activated carbon granulate refills)
PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS and BENEFITS
  • Selectively addable ceramic prefilter. ceramic is cleanable and protects the not cleanable glasfibre from soiling
  • With activated carbon core  improves taste and adsorbs chemicals
  • Doual piston  water flows continously when raising and lowering the pump handle
  • Rubber base  provides for a secure stand
  • Integrated bottle thread  fits directly on Nalgene bottles (wide mouth)
  • Outlet tube with bottle clip easy filling of various containers
SHORT PROFILE
  • Fast, convenient and adaptable to various water conditions.
  • Pumps up to 2 l/min. For 1 to 4 people.
  • Ideal for Emergencies, backpacking and trekking.
