Swiss-made water filters
Water is not necessarily drinking water
A crystal-clear stream or lake usually contains microorganisms that can make you sick.
Water contaminants like protozoa, bacteria and viruses can cause serious illness. Avoid tap water and ice cubes anytime the water quality is uncertain – even bottled water can be questionable when available. Good health while travelling starts with travel preparation – and the right Katadyn product for safe drinking water.
An increasing number of outdoor enthusiasts and travellers also remember to take along products for producing drinking water when preparing their trips. Katadyn offers you the suitable product for any need – regardless of whether you are travelling as a globetrotter, a holidaymaker, a camper or a sailor.
Our comprehensive filter range is divided into three requirement categories – Endurance, Backcountry and Ultralight. As for our desalinators, we distinguish between mobile, hand-operated Survivors for emergencies and electrically powered PowerSurvivors for supplying daily fresh water on board. With the products from the Micropur line, we offer customers a valuable additional supplement for carefree holidays and journeys. All our products are made and tested in Switzerland to satisfy the most rigorous quality standards.
