    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    MSR Water Filter Maintenance Kit

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    MSR Water Filter Maintenance Kit is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing pieces This product *should* provide all the key components required to maintain the MSR MicroFilter. It doesn't. It does NOT contain the Umbrella Valve that, in my experience, is the component most prone to failure on the MSR MicroFilter. The umbrella value acts to maintain water pressure inside the chamber holding the ceramic core - it is therefore critical to ensuring water is pushed through the filter. Having it fail means that you are unable to maintain adequate water pressure. You will know when this is happening when you pump the handle and the MSR water clear water chamber (at the top of the unit) gradually fails to fill with water yet and there is apparent (and growing) pressure in the system. This is happening because both the clear chamber and ceramic chamber are becoming pressurized (ie the valve is leaking air back into the clear chamber) and you are unable to draw the next pump of water into the filter - drawing up water is necessary because, in the subsequent push down, it is the effective incompressibility of water that pushes it through the filter (if the clear chamber contains just air then the air is effectively just 'squeezed' and little/no water comes out of the filter). Net net: if you were expecting to buy this product to give you a complete set of replacement pieces for the MSR Micro Filter then think again. It does contain the other seals and maintenance pieces you might otherwise need. The umbrella valve is available separately from other retailers (unfortunately not from REI). Note to REI / REI customers - many thanks helping test out my water filter and for replacing my filter without charge. 5*s for you guys as always.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where's the umbrella valve. I find it odd that this is marked "everything you need". When it is missing a very important part. The umbrella valve. Can't do much without it, so it is not really "everything you need".
