Katadyn TRK Ceradyn Drip Filter
No pumping required, great for groups, good for 13,000 gal of water!!

The Katadyn TRK Ceradyn Drip filter features a 2 ½ gal water container for large quantities of water. The Katadyn TRK Ceradyn uses gravity pressure to produce up to 13 gallons of crystal clear water per day (depending on initial water quality). Water drips from the upper compartment to the lower compartment via THREE 0.2 micron ceramic filters.

When you are required to boil water by your health department due to contamination in the water source (this is happening more and more these days, even without a serious disaster) or when you must use water from a lake, pond or even a rain barrel, this is just the filter to have. It eliminates the need to boil the water because it filters out all the bacteria. Just poor ‘raw’ water into the top container and it drips down thru the 3 filters into the bottom container.

The Ceradyn drip filter comes with three ceramic filter elements. Ceramic filters have a micro porous structure with impregnated silver which delays the growth of bacteria. The pore-size of Katadyn ceramic filters is 0.2 micron (0.0002 mm). Bacteria range in size from 0.2 to 5 micron and protozoa range from 1 to 15 micron so these are all efficiently filtered out. Ceramic filters can be easily cleaned and the filter capacity is measurable.

The Katadyn TRK Drip Filter will treat more water than any filter we know of before cartridges need to be replaced. Fill the upper compartment with up to 2.5 gallons of untreated water, and it literally drips through the 0.2 micron ceramic filter elements into the bottom compartment. Simply set it on a counter in the corner and keep it filled. The Katadyn TRK Drip filter comes with three ceramic filter elements (it uses all 3) which will treat up to an incredible 13,000 gallons of water.

What's the difference between the Ceridyn and Gravidyn models?

While the Katadyn CERIDYN Drip Filter is good for 13,000 gallons of filtering, the GRAVIDYN filter is good for up to 6 months from time of first use, then you’ll need to replace the filters.

The PLUS about the Gravidyn filter is that the water goes thru the ceramic part which takes out all the bacteria and protozoa etc. The water also goes thru the carbon filter part which will remove chemicals, tastes, etc. The MINUS about the Gravidyn is that you will need to change the filters on the Gravidyn model every 6 months.

The PLUS about the Ceridyn filter is that it can be used for years on the one set of filters because they contain no carbon granules.

Both drip filters are field cleanable, meaning that you can clean it at home and don’t have to send it in to a factory service center. All you have to do is unscrew the nut holding the fiter in the upper container, and then gently scrub each filter under cool running water with the green scrubby pad which is included in the box. If you ever lose your green scrubby pad, it is just like the green ones sold in the grocery store for cleaning dishes. When buying a water filter for emergency / disaster purposes, it is highly recommended to buy an extra set of filters (buy 3) for your filter.
