SAWYER TAP WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM
Just because water is coming out of a tap doesn’t mean it is potable. Sawyer makes it easier to ensure you’ve got access to clean water with their Tap Water Filtration System which connects directtly to the threads on spigots and faucets.
It allows you to filter up to 500 gallons per day, with pores no larger than 0.1 Microns, removing 99.99999% of all bacteria (salmonella, cholera, and E. coli); 99.9999% of all protozoa (such as giardia and cryptosporidium); and 100% of microplastics.
The inline filter fits tap size 17mm to 20mm (11/16″ to 3/4″); hose bibs (garden hose spigot); and some (not all) faucet aerators. Included with the Sawyer TAP filter is a backwash adapter, threaded spigot adapter, dual threaded adapter, tap gauge, and a 2-foot-long extension hose for use in a shallow sink.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
