For anyone who loves the outdoors, wild camping is a great way to spend a weekend. While you leave behind campsite facilities, you get to enjoy some peaceful one-on-one time with nature. Just as importantly, you don’t have to pay top dollar for the privilege.

However, leaving civilization behind does come with challenges. Perhaps the most notable is access to water. You can’t carry a lot, and natural water sources can harbor dangerous germs and parasites. That’s why the Pro X by Survivor Filter is so useful. This small device turns even muddy river water into clean water that’s safe to drink, with zero effort required.

What is a three-stage filtration device?

When your health is on the line, one layer of filtration simply won’t cut it. That’s why the Pro X from Survivor Filter has a three-stage filtration system.

Powered by AA batteries, this small device pumps 17 ounces of water per minute through three layers. First, the water passes through a 0.1-micron UF pre-filter membrane.

Next, a carbon filter removes some of the smallest contaminantes. Finally, a 0.01-micron UF membrane filter cleans up any remaining particles in the water.

Fill your containers with the Pro X

By the end, you should have a bottle of clean water that is 99.999% free from bacteria, parasites and viruses. In addition, Pro X removes heavy metals and odors, so the water should taste pretty good, too.

Clean water on demand

Along with being very effective, Pro X is also very convenient. The device is about the size of a small flask, and the built-in pump pushes the water through the filters faster than gravity would allow.

Furthermore, the Pro X works time after time without requiring maintenance. In fact, you can use the membrane filters for 100,000 liters, and the carbon filter for 2,000 liters, before they need to be changed.

The Pro X has a powerful pump

The only thing you will need to do is charge (or change) the batteries. This is a simple task, as the Pro X has a micro-USB input. If the filter runs out of power, you simply hook up your portable power pack for a quick top up.

Perfect thirst-quencher
