    I do a lot of hiking and camping and I have used my mini works for years and it has been awesome. The last thing I want on a hike is to get sick and this filter kicks butt in cleaning the water. I have never had a single problem with it. Very easy to use and clean.

    This is a good filter for around the $100 price range. When compared to the others it is about the same, all depends on your brand preference.

Benefits & Description

Treats 2,000 Liters | Removes Unpleasant Taste | Quick & Easy to Use

Remain Healthy During a Disaster
Removes bacteria, protozoa (including crypto and giardia), and particulate. Feel Confident In Your Preparations
Durable ceramic element ensures protection and will pump water for years. Love the Taste of Your Water
Carbon core removes unpleasant tastes and odors caused by chemicals. Get Your Money’s Worth
Filter cartridge treats up to 2,000 liters or 528.34 gallons of drinking water! Don’t Waste Your Time
Can be cleaned repeatedly without having to pull out extra tools, and treats water quickly and effectively. The MiniWorks EX is the best-selling filter on the market because of its capabilities of taking brown sandy water and transforming it to crisp, clear, fresh tasting, CLEAN water. Natural disasters or contaminated public drinking water can happen at anytime resulting hundreds of people scrambling for the same bottled water on the grocery store shelf. That’s why The Ready Store wants your family to be prepared for any situation including the rough times when clean water is unavailable.

NOTE: This product cannot ship internationally.

The lightweight and compact portability of the MiniWorks EX makes it perfect for emergency kits and, thanks to its innovative AirSpring Accumulator, is capable of pumping one liter of water per minute. Unlike other filters, the MiniWorks EX won’t leave a metallic taste behind. The durable ceramic element ensured protection, pumps water clean for years and can be cleaned repeatedly for full recovery with no tools required for complete disassembly.

This filter is strong, protecting you from harmful bacteria such as protozoa (including crypto and giardia), and particulate so you can rest assured that your family won’t get sick. The MiniWorks EX is also perfect for hiking, camping, or auto emergency kits!

By using a bubble of trapped air, the AirSpring Accumulator pushes more water through in less time. On the handle down stroke the air bubble is compressed, storing some of the pump force, then on the up stroke, the bubble expands pushing water through the cartridge. Your body loses on average 2.5 liters of water everyday (or 2/3 of a gallon), but can handle only a loss of about 10-22% of its water weight (which can happen at around 3 days with no water) before it becomes fatal. Secure your family’s health by obtaining a fresh water supply now for emergencies.

At The Ready Store, we always focus on the QUALITY of our products first because we want you to get the best value for your hard-earned money.
