    I got our squeeze at walmart as well, I was surprised their price was better than amazon and REI. It is just a single bag, a 32oz, though.

    What are your suggestions and tips for filling the dirty water bag? I seem to have problems doing so at least half the time or more.

    Don't short yourself on a water filter. The first time I drank spring water I got Guidaria. Worst abdominal pain in my life for six weeks. The Sawyer should solve this problem.

    I bought the Sawyer when the bags where suspect. I felt the smallest bag was worthless and most likely to fail. Therefore, I cut the top 1/8 inch off and got rid of the cap. I then cut the right corner at a slight angle. When water flow is slow and or depth of pool is not great, I use the bag as a scoop. Then with the corner cut, it is easy to fill the small water bag opening. It should go without saying that I treat both the scoop and the dirty water bag as dirty.

    To put it simply, you need falling water or some sort of scoop.

    Most times it's easy to create water shoot with large leaf...
