|The Sawyer PointONE Bucket Assembly Kit
We've made it as simple as it gets. No more digging wells if there is a water source, no constructing sand filters, and no more purification chemicals. No one has to boil their water to make it safe ever again.
Families are able to hook up their filter literally in minutes to almost any locally found container. The gravity-operated filter and fast flow rate mean anyone, anywhere can have clean water in a matter of seconds.
Just 4-inches long and less than 8 ounces, the Sawyer PointONE can deliver 1 liter of clean water in 60 seconds.
The Sawyer PointONE is a POINT-OF-USE SYSTEM. Since there is such a high flow rate, it eliminates the need to store water which reduces the chances of water being contaminated after it's filtered. The only external force required for the system to function is gravity.
All Sawyer filters deliver 0.1 absolute micron biological filtration, removing 7 log (99.99999%) of all bacteria like Salmonella, E. coli, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid); and 6 log (99.9999%) of all protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
The kit includes everything you need to attach the filter to any plastic bucket or container (bucket not included).

Easy Set-up & Use
The ease of operating the PointONE filter makes it self-sustainable and dependable. It can be installed in minutes, and the only external force required for the system to function is gravity.
The kit provided includes everything needed to attach the filter to any plastic bucket or container and begin filtering water. To install the system, users:
1) Obtain a clean bucket or plastic container.
2) Use the hole cutter to drill a hole 1.5 inches from the bottom of the bucket (you can do this by hand).
3) Screw the connector, hose and filter onto the bucket.
4) Fill the bucket with water from any source, lower the filter head below the water line, and let gravity do the rest.
Maintenance of this filter is very easy and quick. When the filter starts to slow down or clog, simply backwash it with clean water using the syringe provided in the kit; it takes less than 2 minutes.
Since the filters can continuously be backwashed and re-used, they have an extremely long life expectancy. The ease of operating this system makes it self-sustainable and dependable. The Sawyer PointONE can last for up to 10+ years.
The small size and easy set-up of the Sawyer PointONE means that it can be easily delivered to remote locations. You can fit over 100 in a single suitcase. And while robust enough to sustain dozens of people per filter, the Sawyer PointONE is also compact enough to be safely stored in individual homes.
Completely eliminating the need to boil and store water, the Sawyer PointONE provides filtered and purified water for drinking, but also for cleaning, bathing, cooking, watering plants and animals, and more.
