    Aqua Simple

    So, what's up with this? Is the filter ever going to be available again?

    Just make one. It's unbelievably simple. Unfortunately, my Aquasimple died due to my own carelessness so I just made another one. The instructions and parts list is on a thread here on the forum and there is a guy on Youtube that shows how to make one also.

    The Aquasimple style silnylon dry bags are nice due to the light weight, open top and compactness. The weakness to them is that they tend to get some seep through leaking even using better quality bags like the Sea To Summit bags. Easy to patch with some seam sealer though if you have any leaks.

    Did my homework as suggested and found this post:

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...&postcount=19.

    Looks simple enough to give it a try. I will still look at a AHE Aquasimple if Paul does rerelease it.

    re

    I'm not sure but this sounds like what I made a few years ago based on some info I found online.


    I used the large green dry back from the wally 3 pack, the top of a nalgene bottle, and a nylon hose barb from Lowes to create a gravity bag.

    I attached this to a replacement filter for the Platypus Clean Stream setup and on the other end ran a few feet of hose to a 90* on/off valve I had from REI for a hydration line.

    Works GREAT.

    If you find the filter and the nalgene on sale you can make this for $40-50.

    Thanks guys, I have one I made from Just Jeff's plans (with the modded filter). I wanted to just buy one for my daughter that didn't require bandsawdremel skills down the road. I can come up with a couple of Jacksons easier than time for another project right now.

    There's no need to dremel anything to make the Aquasimple clone. Whether you choose to use the Hiker Pro filter inside the bag or whether you use a in-line filter of your choosing outside the bag. Unless of course you are a gram weenie than shaving off excess plastic might be worth it.

    Anyway, the only part of making the gravity set up that requires anything other than a pair of scissors and possibly pliers is when burning the hole at the bottom of the bag. For that I simply heated up a small nail multiple times and carefully burned the hole until the size was exactly what it needed to be. That is the trickiest part because you DO NOT want to make a mistake and make the hole bigger than it is supposed to be.
