19/11/12 I bought the afore mentioned water filter on evilbay, £19.14 including postage from Hongkong this morning it arrived. I checked out a load of reviews on this before committing, yes it was only £20 but that’s £20 of my money so I made sure to do the research.
All the reviews bar one were 100% positive, the one negative review claimed he couldn’t get any suction from the pump and after contacting the seller he had it replaced hassle free and the new one worked just fine.

Nice sturdy case:
Little packet containing fine grit wet&dry for cleaning the filter and some lube for the O-ring:
It all comes apart and reassembles easily enough:
I gave it a little try out the tap, it had a mild plastic taste but I put that down to the tubes being new and not havng been aired. I’ll be taking this out with me tomorrow and hopefully if it all works I’ll avoid spending Christmas in hospital, if it doesn’t I’ll update and you can save yourself £20.
