This filter will remove bacteria and protozoa. You would need a purification method to remove viruses.

How much reasonably clear water should I anticipate filtering before filter replacement.
Asked on 1/18/2012 by Ed from Southern Illinois
According to Sawyer as long as you back wash the filter element with clean water the element will out last the bags. Essentially life time capacity.
