Right and our version will need a filter change every two gallons at a price of $40 per filter.

Yeah.  I think it actually is all three.

I picked one up when I realized that it cost about the same as a replacement filter for my MSR Sweetwater.  It has worked out very well for me.

Looks like a great tool for those who live without access to clean water.

Hopefully the technology will trickle down to backpackers.
