Product Description

The WaterWorks EX offers greater protection than any other filter in our line. Long-lasting and fully field-maintainable, it features a durable ceramic element that delivers years of protection, as well as a second-stage PES membrane for extra filtering power. The WaterWorks can be cleaned repeatedly for full recovery, with no tools required for complete disassembly. And, thanks to its innovative AirSpring Accumulator™, it is capable of pumping one liter of water per minute. (BY MSR)

DigityDanGood pump

Voted 5/5

been using this for a few years and have had lots of success with it. I have never secondary'd with it. and i've have used it with water that isn't the top of the line and couldn't taste the diference. If it slows down just take it apart in a second scrub the filter lightly and its good to go.
