Highwater Marks

At Highwater Filters we are always looking for the best products that we think our customers will find value in. We look for quality, affordability, ease of use, durability and size. We value efficiency and portability. We favor American-made products because we believe in supporting local economies and American workers. We believe no other manufacturer exemplifies the qualities we look for in water treatment better than Sawyer. Sawyer products are based on technology used in kidney dialysis. Sawyer worked with a fiber manufacturer to improve the technology so that Sawyer products can withstand a decade or more of use. They wanted to make sure that Sawyer filters and purifiers could be back-flushed again and again without causing damage to the micropores. The results are impressive. So much so that Sawyer offers a "million gallon guarantee" on all their filters and purifiers. Some call that a gimmick as there is no way to really know how much water has flowed through your Sawyer product. It may seem gimmicky but it's just another way to say their products carry a lifetime guarantee. From Sawyer's website: "The proprietary water filters are comprised of tiny "U" shaped micro-tubes that allow water to enter into their core through tiny micro-pores. The high number of those tiny tubes and their surface area allows the filter to have one of the fastest flow rates in the world. This high flow rate eliminates the need to store water, reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process. Each filter is certified for ABSOLUTE microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 or 0.02 micron in size. This makes it impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giradia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer PointONE™ biological filter. At 7 log (99.99999%) the filter attains the highest level of filtration available today. If viruses are an issue, we offer the Point ZeroTWO Purifier (0.02 micron absolute pores), the first and thus far only portable purification device to physically remove viruses, which it does at a >5.5 log (99.9997%) rate, exceeding EPA and NSF recommendations." Sawyer products are used all over the world to treat contaminated water. They are very effective for the removal of biological contaminants such as bacteria, protozoa and cysts. Their products are a favorite with backpackers, campers, travelers, relief workers, survivalists, missionaries and everyday people who want to be ready for any emergency where drinking water could be compromised or unavailable. Their light weight and fast flow rate is hard to beat. The fact that they have an unlimited capacity saves consumers money by avoiding the cost of replacement filters. And, despite the fact that they are made here in the USA, their prices are hard to beat. If you are looking for the best value in water treatment, you will be very happy with the products that Sawyer has to offer.

Photo by Patti Kern-Parcel[/caption] Announcing a Train Wreck Sale at Highwater Filters! We are seriously over-stocked on some of our Sawyer products after a train derailment in Montana on July 18th delayed a big order en route from Florida. With little information about the fate of our shipment, we were forced to request an identical order for more of the same. It apparently took over a week to clean up the mess but by last Friday, the derailed shipment was on its way. Both the delayed shipment and the replacement shipment arrived this week. There was no damage to any of the products that were on the wrecked train! We need to move the excess inventory this unfortunate event caused. For a limited time, we are reducing prices on the SP131 Sawyer Squeeze, the SP181 Sawyer All in One Filter and the SP191 Point Zero Two Purifier Kit. These prices will probably never be this low again. And check out our new promotional deal: Our 40/40 Special. Buy any water treatment product of $40 or more and get a Katadyn Carbon Cartridge for 40% off! You need to use the coupon code CCDEAL to get your discount. Highwater Filters now sells the LifeStraw and Watersafe City Water and Well Water Test Kits! Thank you for supporting small and local businesses.

I just found out that the Sawyer SP181 Emergency Water Filter Bucket Kit has been improved and now includes the adaptable Squeeze bottle for lightweight carrying. So you can use this with a bucket or pack it into the bush. It also includes a faucet adaptor, so you can use it with your tap water, too. I spoke with Sawyer today and found that the SP181 was originally designed for disaster relief but so many survivalists have embraced this product that they've upgraded for those on the go. I'm so excited about this new development that I've priced the Sawyer All-in-One filters at a rock bottom introductory price of $42.99. That's considerable less than you will find in stores at $69.99 or on the web where they are selling for $59.99 at most outlets. I can only offer this price for a day or two, or until my current supplies last. I just put in a big order for more. I think this product is going to sell fast. Don't miss out on this great price at Highwater Filters! Thanks for stopping by!
