Re: Seychelle Test Results (It broke!)
- As to my questions I posed after my filter broke:
> Can they provide better and illustrated instructions?Looks like we all agree here. I thought the filters were in
production or I would have been a _little_ less critical.
> Why did the filter fail the dye test?It appears that maybe this isn't a valid test. First Needs obviously
pass this test, and my MSR MiniWorks appears to as well. Still, if
the dye test isn't valid, how can we test to be sure the filter
integrity hasn't been breached? Better instructions would help here
> Why did the filter element nipple break off so easily?This is my big concern. One other tester mentioned that the element
seemed to go in a bit crooked. Maybe this is what happened to mine.
Looking at the pieces again, the plastic isn't as soft as I thought,
but it still broke... I'm interested in Seychelle's comments on this.
> How would this filter perform in silty conditions?I think a prefilter would be a big help here. Maybe a coffee filter
wrapped around the filter element with a rubber band to hold it on? I
don't always have the luxury of letting a pot of water settle before
