Description:For a “souped-up” version of the ordinary Seychelle water filter bottle, the Seychelle advanced water filter bottle is a useful portable water source that can handle even highly turbid, stagnant waters or those intensely contaminated with harmful organisms. This filter is just as lightweight, and can be carried practically anywhere, but offers higher performance in exchange for a higher price.
Carried in a belt or backpack-ready insulator sleeve, this water bottle features a replaceable cartridge that can handle up to 100 gallons of water before it needs to be changed. Just as with other water filter bottles, it is well suited to campers, hikers, joggers or walkers, travelers, fishermen, boaters, and other outdoor enthusiasts.
However, it is especially good for an emergency backup filter, too, because it can handle so many water qualities, rather than needing essentially clean water like other bottle filters:
- The Seychelle Advanced Water Filter Bottle includes EPA-approved iodinated resin (EPA Reg #: 35917-2).
- Turbid, stagnant, and highly contaminated water can all be successfully cleaned by this bottle.
- Possible uses include getting clean drinking or cooking water following a hurricane or an earthquake when water is frequently contaminated with sewage and industrial chemicals thanks to damage and massive leaks in storage facilities.
Other features of the Seychelle Advanced Water Filter Bottle
- Cap screws on and off for easy filling and closure.
- Independent laboratory tests reveals this filter to be in compliance with EPA/ANSI protocols and NSF Standards 42 and 53.
- Environmentally safe and reusable (cartridges are replaceable every 100 gallons).
- Sturdily made, compact, and convenient to carry anywhere.
- Made of EPA approved low-density #4 plastic, does not leach BPA into the water.
- Also reduces fluoride in filtered water by 90%.
- The most laboratory and field-tested filter of its kind. Also tested in 16 foreign countries.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can the straw and filter be used without the bottle to extract water that's only 1/2 inch deep?
We have never tried it but I don't see why not.
Some are saying it does not clean lake water or well water. I have never heard of that before. Is it true? Also, we have soft water, is that ok to use in the bottles? Do any work on well water?
That is not true they do filter bacteria and viruses so you can take water out of a lake or you're well water. Yes, the soft water is fine in the bottles.

I had one previously but I never got rid of the chlorine taste: I want to try again because I’m traveling to Asia really soon. Any advice on how to get rid of the chlorine taste/smell? Please reply. Thank email@example.com
It will remove chlorine. We have not had any problems with them not removing chlorine. Maybe you had a defective filter.

So can I use this to drink water out of the maineste river with out putting any tablets in
Yes you can, I use it all the time when kayaking the Manistee river.
How do we know when we reach the 100 gallons limit and when to change the filter?
When the water starts tasting bad, or it gets hard to get water through the filter is an indication that it is time to replace the filter.
I bought a dozen bottles in 2009. What are the shelf life on the filters?

No, they are made of EPA approved low-density #4 plastic, does not leach BPA into the water.
Does it remove chlorine

May I call in with my credit card number?

I bought your water pump before 2010 and the water from the filter tasted like iodine and I couldn’t drink it. So I have been unwilling to purchase another filter that uses an iodine filter
Normally you do not taste it or the taste goes away after a few uses. But yes the advanced and the extreme filters have an iodine resin in them. If you do not want that you would have to purchase the standard filter, as it does not have it in it and it still filters bacteria just not viruses.
How many gallons of water can you put through this filter before you need to change it or replace it
They have a filtering capacity of 100 gallons.
For Christmas this year I gave each of my family units (6) an emergency preparedness tote of food, small fishing rod, solar battery, etc. and a Seychelle Water Bottle. We live on a lake
and it's comforting to know that I can use the Seychelle Water bottle to drink the water.
I did alot of research and this one is the best thankyou
This is written under the condition that the reader understands that I am a customer, and am certainly not an expert on water filtration.
As I understand their documents, their filters, if rated at 200 gallons, are tested at 400 gallons for every contaminate, or item covered by the US government's NFS 53 standard. If true, and as a customer I have no reason to dbout it, this is a remarkable filter, and much of the cost of the filter is likely the cost to test them.
It appears that most filters on the market either don't bother with this standard, or lie about it making Seychelle all the more remarkable. One company that sells a stainless counter top "filter" is in the middle of a major class action law suit for deceptive advertising. The tests results shown indicate that Seychelle has met all the requirements of the above standard making it a standout product.
This is perfect for camping. I love it
Have not had a chance to use it yet.
I'm camping and have used it the entire trip. Water tastes pure, clean and amazing!
I totally recommend this product!!!!
