Re: Portable Water Purification question.

I had pretty much given up on it. In fact I still can't figure out
how you even get a filter out of it. The bottom section screws off
but nothing comes out of it as far as I can see without trying to pry
it apart with a screwdriver. The only thing I can guess is that the
section that screws off is the filter and you just have to buy a new
one and screw it on. If that is the case then it is also part of the
body of the unit? Anyway any info you can get me would be greatly
appreciated. I have come to the conclusion that it is a PUR Explorer
model which seems to be one of their upper end models prior to them
being taken over by Katadin.

Thanks a ton,
