4557RE: [BackpackGearTest] brief multiple gear reviews
- Sep 11, 2001Jason,Great mini reviews.....wanted to tell you about the SWA filter "O" Ring. A couple of years ago I cleaned mine on the trail andpromptly lost the very thin "O" ring. It slips off very easily. My granddaughter managed to tighten the filter up without the ringso we were okay. Once home my husband just went out and bought a thicker "O" ring in the correct size. It worked very well.I now pack a extraring just in case, but I have not lost any since that time. My SWA filter is now on its 4th year, I do not know how many gallons it has filtered but on my last trip it just stopped filtering, so guess I have had my moneys worth and will get a new one.Cheers,Marge (the old gal)-----Original Message-----
