Follow Up Review on the Katadyn Vario Water Filter

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Katadyn sent me the replacement pump housing for my filter as promised.  I assembled it and ran some bleach water through it to test and sanitize it.  To my amazement, it leaked around the flange where the intake nipple was glued to the body (the same place the other one broke).  I wrote Katadyn and they apologized and are sending me another one (which they promised to test first) and have asked me to return the defective one for examination.  I congratulate their friendly customer service, but remain concerned about the manufacturing process that results in failures like this.  I will write more on this filter after I have had a chance to use it some more.
