Sawyer PointONE filters are hollow fiber membrane water filters. No filter pore sizes exceed 0.1 micron, which prevent harmful microplastics, bacteria, protozoa, and cysts from permeating the filter. In all filters, the fibers are fully encased to protect them from damage.
Several different kits are available for purchase that use the PointOne filter; such as the bucket adaptor kit and the 1-Gallon Gravity Filtration System. The filter may vary in size based on which product or kit is purchased, but all use the PointOne filtration technology.

The PointONE filter removes 99.99999% (7 log) of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E. coli; removes 99.9999% (6 log) of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium.
A clean, food-grade bucket should be used with the bucket assembly kit, and filtered water should always be collected in a clean container as well.
When the water flow decreases or stops, the PointOne filter should be backwashed. Clean water should be used for backwashing. If dirty water must be used, then the first liter (or quart) of the water filtered after the backwash must be discarded.
