View Full Version : Old Pur Scout water purifier

Hey folks, I have a Pur Scout purifier that I purchased a little batter than 20 years ago,never used mind you ( how bad is that). Trying to plan a section hike and looking to get some thoughts on should I use it, discard it or use something else. Would the Aqua Mura be unnecessary along side Sawyer mini?
Thanks for your help

The Pur Scout includes iodine, so Aqua Mira would be unnecessary. This should work fine; it's just a bit heavy in comparison to today's products.

My Scout still has the original filter. Very little usage. The O-rings need lubricant periodically. Lip gloss works. Katadyn sells a replacement filter minus the iodine.
A very sturdy, simple, easily serviced quality filter. Lighter than the MSR WaterWorks which I also own.

I also have one of these that I bought years ago. I still have it even though I don't use it anymore. It was large and heavy though. I did like the fact that you could put the iodine section on it but I don't know if it would still be effective
