Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL STAR PURCHASE!!! Wish I would have had this twenty years ago when my son was filtering water from mud bogs. Would have saved a lot of time cleaning and money replacing filters! Thanks go to the developers at MSR for coming up with such a simple, but highly effective solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth having in muddy water works great when dealing with muddy water after heavy rains, save the filters, and a little bulky but it does its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must-have . . . Regardless of what type of water filter you have, the Siltstopper is a very useful add-on. As the name implies, this thing stops silt from getting to the more expensive filter, thus prolonging the life of your filtration system. The replacement filters come in a 3-pack and usually go for about $20.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great insurance I bought the prefilter when I purchased my SweetWater. Even in clear water the prefilter catches a lot of silt. I've used this for over a year now and it is very brown on one side and the other side it still white. The main filter in my SweetWater still looks like new. The replacement filter come on a nice case so you can bring extras if you know you are going to be filtering some dirty water. It's a great way to extend the life of your main filter element.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't work on silty water, not worth the money! I tried to clean in the field because it clogged very quickly in silty water, I was able to wash it off gently twice and then the paper filter broke. Great product otherwise but, if the water is clear you really don't need it if you have the ceramic filter cartridge. The cost of the pre-filter is high and the cost of the replacement paper filters is stupid! they should only be about $9.95 for three. you can buy the entire unit for 19.95 thats too high $9.95 would be ok but not worth the money! They should be cleanable in the field without breaking. Design is good but the design of the filter needs improvement, maybe use a technique like K&N air filters and use a wire mesh and gauze to justify the price. Easier to clean the regular filter housing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves Your Filter I bought this to use with my MSR MiniWorks water filter. The MiniWorks (and other ceramic filters) are prone to clogging easily when the water is even slightly silty. Yes, you can take the ceramic filter out, scrape it down, and keep going, but... It is much easier to just swap out one of the small compressed paper filters in this pre-filter (replacements are easily found, are cheap, come in a 3 pack tube and are light weight). Also, every time you scrape down a ceramic filter, you scrape away some of the filter material - if you do this a lot, you will need to replace the filter more often - they are expensive (about $40), so this is a better option. Oh, the "pre-filter" that comes on the MiniWorks? They pretty much only filter out sticks, rocks, etc. This pre-filter will catch the very small silty particles that tend to clog the ceramic filter. I just ordered an MSR Hyperflow and hope/assume it will work with it as well as I plan to continue to use this wonderful time-saver.
