          Make sure to pump about a quart of fresh water through a new filter before taking into the woods. It will clear out the factory residue. Fill sink with clean water only and pump into other side of double sink or bucket. You will see what I mean.

                  Comments about Katadyn Hiker Pro Replacement Cartridge:

                  I have two Katadyn water filters: the Base Camp and the Hiker Pro. Each is at least four years old. I love being able to carry one replacement cartridge that will work in whichever of my filters needs replacement. This year, I carried the spare into Quetico and didn't need it. Both filters continued working with the cartridges I installed last year (the Base Camp) or the year before (the Hiker).

                    I filtered about 10+ gallons of water a day on a 4 day backpacking trip with a group. No problems, but I do cover my acorn filter w/ a coffee filter that prevents sediment from clogging the filter.

                          This is the ONLY filter that fits my Hiker Pro water filter. I gotta' buy it. I use it in the Adirondack Preserve of NY State where the water has loads of tannin so the filter gets stained and clogged readily.

                              When the Hiker Pro starts to slow down, and it takes longer to pump, then this would need a filter replacement. You will also see discoloration in the water.

                              YES, This filter does fit the PUR Voyager & PUR Hiker. see Katadyn's website under Technical Support/Filter Support/FAQ. 3rd question from the bottom:
                              What if I need a replacement cartridge for a PUR purifier?

                              Katadyn microfilter replacement cartridges fit 2 PUR purifier pumps. The Hiker cartridge will fit into a Voyager, and the Guide cartridge will fit into a Scout. For full virus protection with a microfilter, use an EPA-registered chemical disinfectant, after pumping.

                              The Hiker filter will not fit the Pur Voyager. The Hiker will fit the older Pur version of this filter by the same name. Pur made the hiker and then if became the Katadyn Hiker.

                              The Hiker and the guide are different filters so the hiker replacement cartridge will not work with a guide.

                              To keep this filter clean use the micro sheet that comes with the cartridge to take out tannins in the water. Over time though the filter will get dirty. Rinse under clean water. Make sure you air dry the filter before storage.

                              This filter will work with the Katadyn Hiker and Hiker pro. The Guide Pro is a different filter and the hiker series replacement cartridges will not work with a Guide filter.

                            Is this filter for the Katadyn the same as the old Pur hiker replacement?
