Katadyn 8014644 Hiker Replacement Filter Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com.
Today we’re looking at the Katadyn 8014644. This is the replacement filter for the Katadyn
Hiker filter pump. It is a 0.3 micron glass fiber media with
a granular activated carbon core. This is the filter that is responsible for removing
99.99% of microbial cysts, pathogenic bacteria and protozoa. And, of course, the GAC is removing
a variety of organic and inorganic compounds. It has a filter life of approximately 200
gallons and is super easy to change. I have here a Katadyn Hiker. Grab ahold of the filter
cartridge, twist to remove, there we go, throw that away, grab your new one and stick it
in place, twist and you’re back in business. Now, this replacement filter kit comes with
a couple of pieces of equipment that were not with your original Hiker filter system;
and I want to show those to you and explain them.
First, we have this piece of plastic, that is really a protective outer wrap. It is largely
porous and is used to capture large particles before they can get into the filter cartridge
and cause it to clog before it should. So you use this and then keep it in place with
the netted sheath. It’s cleanable, so they provided this sponge, and really any sponge,
any cleaning rag, can be used to clean the large sediment off of this protective outer
wrap. And then, of course, they’ve provided the food grade silicone grease so that you
can lubricate the O-rings and the piston on the pumping mechanism on your Hiker.
Again, this is the Katadyn 8014644, the replacement filter for the Katadyn Hiker, and I’m your
host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
