The DuraFlo™ Water Filter (used in the AquaBrick™ water-filtration system) has been tested and certified to remove virus, bacteria and giardia from any non-saline water source. In other words, it won't work with ocean water but could safely filter swimming pool water!
The water filter’s “end of life” testing has established a limit of 550 gallons for removal of viruses and 700 gallons for removal of bacteria, giardia and 118 types of water borne toxins and chemicals. Sagan water filters (makers of AquaBrick) meet or exceed United States EPA water-quality standards. Visit AquaVeritas.org to check whether the DuraFlo fits your specific filtration brand and model.
Flow Rate and Durability
DuraFlo filters provide up to 9.5 gallons of pure, filtered water per hour through a gravity-fed system, or up to 45 gallons per hour as part of the AquaBrick water filter system. This is far higher than competitor's gravity-fed systems, which average about 1.75 gallons per hour, per filter.
It's extremely durable. The DuraFlo Filter can be frozen, dropped, or stored for long periods. It's impossible to over-tighten it during installation. Compare DuraFlo to competitors' “candle stick filters,” which frequently crack if frozen or dropped, rendering them useless.
Independently Certified Usable-Filtration Life
AquaPail systems contain DuraFlo™ water filters, which have been independently lab tested and certified to calibrate their useful filtration life. Each filter can safely filter up to 700 gallons. You'll know exactly when to replace each filter by viewing the built-in indicator light.
No Power Source Neede
Our AquaPail filtration system takes advantage of gravity and doesn't require an external power source. This can be a lifesaver in emergency conditions. It's also perfect for camping, boating, hunting and all outdoor activities.
