The UZ-BP backpack system was developed for disaster relief situations, but is in demand from outdoor recreation enthusiasts. The UZ-BP is a complete water filtration system, durable enough to last for many years, and portable enough to take with you anywhere.
Using our popular UZ-1 filter, attached to a 17.5L (4.5 gallon) heavy duty water-safe vinyl backpack, the UZ-BP is ideal for camping, hiking, and global travel, since it can be stored compactly when not in use. Usage instructions are printed directly onto the bag, with visual illustrations of each step in the assembly and cleaning processes. Because it uses the UZ-1 filter, the UZ-BP has the same advantages over other filtration products. It filters over 99.999999% of the bacteria that cause waterborne disease, is easy to use and maintain, and will provide ample clean water whenever you need it.
The UZ-XL is the big brother of the UZ-1, built for the high capacity demands of schools, orphanages, clinics, and large homes. The UZ-XL will work with almost any piped water system, whether gravity-fed or pressurized, and will provide clean drinking water to large groups of people for up to ten years.
Taking advantage of our tested Hollow Fiber Membrane technology, the unique design of the UZ-XL allows for easy maintenance while maintaining a much lower costs than other large filtration systems. The back flushing process on the UZ-XL is all accomplished in-line, with no manual cleaning, and without removing any parts. Simply turn a few valves and let the water pressure in your system do the cleaning. The UZ-XL is a perfect companion for new water systems, and as an addition to existing systems where contamination is present.
The UZ-SF is an add-on to our popular UZ-XL Large Capacity Filter. The UZ-SF is designed to eliminate sediment and large particulates from source water prior to entering the UZ-XL filter.
In systems with highly turbid water (often indicated by cloudy discoloration), this additional pre-filter will assist in the filtration process and allow for longer times between necessary back flushing of the UZ-XL. The UZ-SF should be installed between the water source and the UZ-XL, and is easily cleaned by opening the valve at the bottom and flushing water through the filter.
