Removing particulates and debris before you purify your water with SteriPEN’s UV technology is highly recommended and makes for a much more pleasurable drinking experience. If there are a lot of particulates, they may hamper the UV light from reaching all sides of the 'floaties' and some bacteria may remain and make you sick. Filtering is not required for water that is clear.
The SteriPEN FitsAll Filter uses a durable 40x40 micron screen to effectively remove particulates from your water. The unique design of the SteriPEN FitsAll Filter features a filter cup and funnel fit. This combination offers flexibility to filter water into a wide range of bottles with various mouth sizes. Narrow-mouth bottles such as commercial water bottles, soft-drink bottles and SIGG™ bottles need the funnel part inserted in to opening of the bottle. On wider-mouth bottles, such as Klean Kanteen®, Gatorade® and Nalgene® bottles, only the cup is necessary.
You can pour Water through the FitsAll Filter or you can submerge the combined FitsAll Filter and bottle fitted snugly together, into a river or stream, or your watertank. The FitsAll Filter cup also serves as an adapter that allows the SteriPEN Traveler to be used with wide-mouth water bottles in the inverted position.
The FitsAll Filter Weighs only 65g. The FitsAll Filter is made with rugged, flexible materials that allow the filter to be squeezed during storage and return to shape when unpacked. The storage dimensions for the filter when all the parts are nested together are 88mm x 95mm x 72mm.
