Katadyn 1120070 Siphon Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Katadyn 1120070 Siphon filter.
This utilizes a 0.2 micron silver impregnated ceramic to produce 1.4 gallons of filtered water per hour. You simply put the ceramic element in any elevated container, then run this long six foot rubber hose down to a vessel that can collect the filtered water, and let the siphon action take over. There’s absolutely no pumping necessary.
The ceramic is a really neat material, it filters down to 0.2 microns, which means it removes bacteria, microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia, even algae and protozoa are captured in this element. And the silver impregnation causes the filter to be bacteriostatic and self-sterilizing, meaning that microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media.
Perhaps the greatest feature of this ceramic filter is the reusability factor. It can be washed and reused many many times. Simply take the provided green Scotchbrite and scrub the exterior surface, either under running water or in a pool of water, and then you’re back in business.
They’ve even provided a tool to measure the outside diameter of the filter. Once the tool can go over the filter, it’s too thin and it needs to be replaced. Filter life is approximately 5,000 gallons.
Again, this is the Katadyn 1120070 Siphon filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Thanks for watching.
