More About this product

Full Product Description

A lightweight, robust solution for filtering large quantities of water, Sawyer's Gravity System with Dual-Threaded MINI filter is ideal for backpacking, backcountry camping, and emergency preparedness.

Available in two models, the 1-Gallon Gravity System (SP160) comes with one bag and a MINI, while the 1-Gallon Dual Bladder Gravity System (SP2160) comes with two bags (one for dirty water, one for clean) and a MINI.

The Sawyer dual-threaded MINI water filter weighs just 2 ounces, fits in the palm of your hand, and is rated to 0.1 micron absolute filtration — removing 99.99999% of bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera, and E.coli, and removing 99.9999% of protozoa (such as giardia and cryptosporidium). The MINI also filters out 100% of microplastics.

With threads on both sides, you can screw the push pull cap onto the MINI for easy on/off functionality while filtering. Convenient and easily packable, this single- and dual-bag gravity system doesn’t require any pumping and is perfect for camping, hunting, fishing, scouting, disaster relief, and emergency preparedness kits, as well as on adventure travel excursions where potable tap and bottled water are not easily carried or safe to drink.

The 1-gallon bladders feature a wide mouth cap that allows for fast and easy filling, as well as a convenient carry handle. To set up a gravity system, first fill the reservoir with water from any source (a lake, stream, pond, glacier, kitchen faucet, etc.). Hang the bag — from a tree, the back of your pack, or hold it up with your hand — and connect the MINI to the included hose and let gravity do its work. Water will flow through the MINI to produce fresh, clean water for drinking and cooking.

The SP160 package includes a dual-threaded MINI water filter, 1-gallon bladder, cleaning plunger, and gravity hose with adapters. It also comes with Sawyer's Cleaning Coupling accessory. The SP2160 package includes a dual-threaded MINI water filter, dirty water bladder, clean water bladder, tube adapter with shutoff clamp, inline adapters, tube adapter, long tube, hanging strap with S-biner, cleaning plunger, cleaning coupling, push-pull cap, and hose guide.

The Sawyer Squeeze Filter can be used in conjunction with a hydration pack. Please see video Sawyer Squeeze with Hydration Pack using Inline Adapter and Sawyer Squeeze with Fast Fill Adapters.

The Sawyer Squeeze Filter with Water Bottles
The Sawyer Squeeze Filter can also be used on water bottles when you are unsure whether or not it is safe to drink the water.

The Sawyer Inline Filter
This convenient filter can be used as an inline filter on a hydration pack, a pre-filter for an existing pump system, with the provided faucet adapter, or with a gravity bag.

How long does the filter/purifier last?
Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit. Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit.

Since the filters and purifiers can continuously be backwashed and re-used they have an extremely long life. The filter/purifier membrane may never need to be replaced, however when the flow rate slows or the filter clogs, simply backwash the unit with the provided backwashing device to clear out the pores.

What do you mean by 0.1 and .02 micron absolute?
Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit. Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit.

Many other filters list nominal or average pore sizes which leave the possibility of harmful pathogens to pass through. By claiming absolute microns there are no variances in pore size on our filter membranes. At 0.1 and 0.02 micron absolute these are true barrier filters so there is no questionable time period whether the water is safe to drink.

How do I care for my filter during freezing weather?
Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit. Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit.

Your Filter is safe from freezing temperatures if it has never been wetted. ‍

After initial wetting
While there is no definitive way to tell if a filter has been damaged due to freezing, Sawyer recommends replacing your filter if you suspect that it has been frozen.

During trips
If you are in freezing temperatures, we recommend that you store your filter in your pocket or close to your person so that your body heat can prevent freezing. THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR A FROZEN FILTER.

How often do you have to clean or backwash the filter?
Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit. Nunc ac arcu erat. In volutpat ornare massa non condimentum. Praesent lacinia interdum mi sit amet volutpat. Integer suscipit orci vel fringilla hendrerit.

The frequency of cleaning depends on how dirty the water is. With relatively clear water, backwashing may only be necessary every 1,000 gallons whereas with extremely turbid or muddy water, backwashing may be required every 10 gallons. Nevertheless, backwashing is an extremely simple process and takes only a minute.
