The Platypus GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System utilizes innovative Hollow Fiber technology to offer completely pump-free filtration. Perfect for family camping or base camp usage, the GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System includes two 4.0 liter reservoirs. Simply fill the reservoir marked "dirty", suspend it from a branch using the reinforced handles and allow gravity to filter the water into the "clean" reservoir.
The ground-breaking Hollow Fiber Technology used by the GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System enables it to efficiently and effectively filter 4.0 liters in just 2.5 minutes! The 0.2 Micron cartridge exceeds EPA guidelines and is completely field maintainable and long lasting, effectively filtering up to 1,500 liters of water (depending on water quality) before needing replaced! The GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System can be backflushed in seconds to clear the filter of debris and the streamlined, lightweight filter housing is durable and saves on weight and space.
NOTE: The Platypus GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System is effective against protozoa, bacteria and particulates. It is NOT effective against viruses.

– Cameron Park CA
Likes: I didn't think I would like the "zipper" type openings but they have worked out very well on the Platypus hydration bags I purchased prior to getting the gravity filter. All the bags have no taste and have held up without a problem or leak for a number of outings so far. The gravity filter works great (and doesn't work you!) I am using this when three or more are hiking/camping together: performance to weight ratio seems excellent. For solo I am still looking for something ultralight and effective..
Dislikes: Everything is great so far. Wish they made a shower attachment with quick connect for this kit! I may adapt something to use these same bags for this purpose.
– Honeoye Falls NY
Likes: The Platypus GravityWorks filter has the ability to back flush the filter which seemed pretty minor and obvious, but really worked all week in Algonquin Park last year. This is a superior product to the Katadyn Base Camp which we had used for the previous 3 years.
Dislikes: Doesn't hold quite as much, but I'll take filtration that doesn't clog over volume.
– fort wayne IN
Likes: It is easy to use, no work involved and quick. It comes with a carrying case that everything fits in well.Made in America
Dislikes: I wish the quick connect was on the clean water bag also, so you could filter directly into the big zip SL hydration pouch if you wanted to
– Honeoye Falls NY
Likes: We have been using a competitive product for 3 years while canoeing with a Scouting group in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. It really only performed well for the first half of the week. The Platypus GravityWorks filter however, kept the clean drinking water flowing all week. It is more easily stored. It backflushes and it is FAST! Loved the click in hose connection as well. Will be buying a couple more by the time we leave next year!
Dislikes: It would really rock if the hose had a quick disconnect and pouring mechanism on the clean side. However, it fits all my earlier platypus bags...
– Mount Joy PA
Likes: This filtration system kept 5 of us hydrated for an entire weekend. It was extremely easy to use and thanks to it's ease of use we were not limited to where and when we could get water. This is probably the only water filtration system I will ever buy or need. The Clean water container also worked great as a camp water bag.
Dislikes: The dirty water pouch is difficult to seal at times but it is not enough to take away from the quality of the product
– Hummelstown PA
Likes: Have not had a chance to use this yet but am very pleased so far with the small amount of space it requires, it's light weight and ease of use.
Dislikes: Nothing yet

Zoomify would go here, or a larger image... This is a temporary placeholder... The settup of this may change depending on whether we are in fact using Zoomify.
Rotate SWF would go here... Greg will reconfigure this after we have an actual example. This is just a place holder.
