What happens to filter if it freezes in September in higher altitudes

Asked by: Llama packer
Hiya Llama packer, thanks for your question! You should not use a water filter after it has been exposed to freezing water. You should consider using tablets instead, like MSR Aquatabs or Katadyn Micropur MP1 Purification Tablets.

Does this system filter to drinkable water standards? The video says cooking/cleaning water. Would the Platypus Gravityworks Carbon Filter Element be a benefit or does the included filter perform carbon filtering? Thanks

Asked by: Tincup
Hey there Tincup, good questions! Yes... in addition to providing water for cooking and washing, this system provides clean drinking water. You can use the Carbon Filter Element along with with the GravityWorks filter to improve the taste or odor but its not a necessity. (Some people can't tell the difference in taste so it's just a preference.) Since the carbon filter will not filter out the bad stuff on its own, you'll want to use the carbon filter after the water is already filtered with the regular filter. It is an accessory and not meant to be used as a substitute for the regular filter. (Wow, I just said filter A LOT.) Hope this helps!
