GRAYL® GEOPRESS™ Purifier is the fastest, most versatile water purifier ever. In seconds, GEOPRESS makes even the sketchiest water safe, anywhere in the world. GEOPRESS provides global protection by removing viruses, which straws and camping filters can't, plus bacteria, protozoa, chemicals, heavy metals, and microplastics.
Function is effortless and incredibly fast. Just Fill from any tap, spigot, beachside taco stand or mountain stream. Press on a low surface using your body weight. Drink 710ml (24oz) safe water with confidence. GEOPRESS is designed to #empoweradventure around the globe and provide an alternative to single-use bottles.
Adventure travelers have gone from staring at a kettle (boiling h2o) to drinking nasty chemicals (tablets) to pumping plus adding uv light (complicated & slow) to sucking while squeezing (huh?). You're familiar with the tech – it's bulky, awkward, complicated, a time suck (no pun intended). Most travelers and adventurers don't bother, they buy bottled water instead because it's both readily available and convenient. Especially those who travel to those 105+ developing countries where waterborne pathogens are found in their water sources.
GRAYL® set out to invent a better way.
With GEOPRESS™, GRAYL® designed the fastest, most versatile water purifier ever. No other portable purifier rivals the ease, speed, and versatility of GEOPRESS. In only seconds, GEOPRESS allows anyone, anywhere to drink from hotel sinks, beachside taco stands, public bathrooms and spigots, as well as rivers and lakes! Designed for international travel and rugged outdoor pursuits, it provides complete protection by removing all waterborne pathogens (virus, bacteria, protozoan cysts) and filtering chemicals, heavy metals, and even microplastics.
GEOPRESS provides unrivaled results with an easy, uncomplicated process. Simply, fill with dirty water from any stream, sketchy spigot or bathroom sink. Then, press on a low surface, using your body weight to apply a steady downward force. In a matter of seconds, you have safe drinking water from virtually any freshwater source.
Inside GRAYL purifier cartridges, ion exchange traps virus, bacteria and protozoa, plus microplastics to make water safe. Ion exchange employs positively charged ions (aka - molecular magnets) grab and hold impurities as they flow by. Ion exchange differs from standard filtration (size exclusion) by permitting water to flow faster with less force, making water cleaner, faster and easier than any other method.
Additionally, ultrapowdered activated carbon is integrated into the purifier media (not a separate, bulky filter). Activated carbon removes many chemicals and heavy metals and makes water taste and smell better.
For international travelers and outdoor explorers, the ability to remove virus from drinking water is critical. Viruses can cause serious waterborne diseases, including Rotavirus, Hepatitis A and SARS and are found in drinking water in virtually all developing countries. Because viruses are so small, they can only be removed by a water purifier, not common water filters. GEOPRESS Purifier removes all waterborne pathogens including viruses.
Travelers often must purchase drinking water in single-use plastic bottles as this is the only safe water available. It is both wasteful and a burden on the planet to purchase water bottles for international adventure travel. With GEOPRESS, anyone can tap into the world's water sources and safely drink from sketchy spigots, hotel sinks, murky rivers, wells or lakes.
Highly capable and intuitive, GEOPRESS is packed with innovative features to maximize utility, versatility, and performance, while not sacrificing form and function.
GEOPRESS SimpleVent™ Drink Cap performs three functions: vents air while purifying, protects against cross contamination, grime and dirt, and allows one-handed hydration through fast-flow drink spout cap. SoftPress™ Pads provide a comfortable, ergonomic non-slip pressing surface - TopoGrip™ is a tactile non-slip grip material placed on all heavy-use surfaces, including under the two-finger carry loop.
The result is a purifier that is better in every way. Global protection, effortless function, chemical-free purification, and incredibly fast. GEOPRESS is the pinnacle of water purification and one giant step towards self-sufficiency and single-use plastic reduction while traveling and recreating.
