          Comments about MSR Miniworks EX Water Filter Replacement Ceramic Element:

          I use this the MSR Miniworks filter quite a bit, taking it on group backpacking trips. I'm usually the one to filter water for the group (anywhere from 2-5 peeps). The water quality I usually find on my outings is heavily laden with minerals, but otherwise very clean.

          With that said, my last filter element lasted almost 3 years and over 300 miles of trail. It's definitely proven to be worth the money.

          The best thing about this element/filter setup is that I can clean it while at the water source without any special tools or knowlege. No backflushing required. It is easily broken down and reconstructed.

          The only con is that the more the filter is cleaned, the less time it takes for the flow rate to decrease (causing you to clean it again). The last 6 months of use, I had to clean the element every 2 or 3 liters. I still give it a 5 star rating because for the first 2.5 years of use, this wasn't an issue.

          Overall a great system. I haven't found anything that I would trade it for......yet.

              • Q:

                Hello, How much water will it filter until it needs to be replaced? I understand it is to be scrubbed clean every so often, but is there a point at which it can no longer function regardless of cleaning? And at how many gallons would you arrive at that point?
                Thank you

                  The ceramic element can last up to 2000 liters. Filter-life ratings are based on best-case scenarios because the testing is performed with clean lab water. Generally you can assume that your filter will last between 50 and 100% of the rated life.

              • Q:

                We have an old MSR water filter, but don't remember the name of it. It looks similar to the Miniworks and the filter looks kind of similar. Our current filter element has "MSR Marathon 205" on one end of it. Can this element be used to replace our current element?
