    I don't know much about these, but might be looking to buy one soon. Do they make one where the filter is washable so you dont have to keep buying filters, or is there no way around that? Any information is great, thanks

    Description of Katadyn TRK Drip Filter with Ceradyn Element:[​IMG]The Katadyn TRK Drip Filter will treat more water than any filter we know of (before cartridges need to be replaced). The TRK drip water filter is a gravity feed filter which requires no pumping, hookup, or electricity. Fill the upper compartment with up to 2.5 gallons of untreated water, and it literally drips through the 0.2 micron ceramic filter elements into the bottom compartment. Simply set it on a counter in the corner and keep it filled. The Katadyn Drip water filter is the way to go for cabins, base camps, recreation sites, boats or RV's. The Katadyn TRK Drip filter comes with three ceramic filter elements (it uses all 3) which will treat up to an incredible 39,000 gallons of water.

    Zoomie My mom is dead, ok?

    MSR Makes a nice one that gets better flow but it tends to clog. Try the Katahdin hiker and tie a bandanna around the intake bobber to filter out silt. You might actually get the 200 gallons it advertises that way without waiting a week for someone to drop ship you a new cartridge.
